* A couple of Jim Henson Company-produced kids series of the recent past, ''Series/SidTheScienceKid'' and ''Series/DinosaurTrain'' are fully [=CGI=]. However, not only do the character designs resemble traditional Muppets, but they're performed like them as well. For some of the more complicated puppets on ''Series/FraggleRock'' and other 80s Henson projects, Jim Henson and crew created radio control puppetry systems where a puppeteer operates a remote control that is translated into movement of the puppet by small motors. In the late 80s, Jim Henson, who was an early fan of [=CGI=] had the idea that the controller output could instead be sent to a computer which then translates it into a rough first pass version of an animated character that is then cleaned up in post. The first such character, Waldo C. Graphic, appears in the MuppetVision3D attraction at Walt Disney World. The system was late or refined by a team lead by Jim's son Brian, and has been used for projects like the aforementioned series.

* In the mid-80's Creator/MarvelComics made a 3-issue ComicBookAdaptation of ''The Muppets Take Manhattan'', as well 20 issues of ''Muppet Babies''. Creator/HarveyComics got the Muppet Babies license, and reprinted some of the Marvel stories.
* Creator/BoomStudios all-ages imprint, [[Creator/KaboomComics Boom! Kids]], acquired the license in 2009, and published an ongoing since 2010, as well as various miniseries which put the Muppets in the roles of various stars of literature and mythology. The comic was cancelled in late 2010, with the final arc being printed by Marvel two years later.

Animatronics was also improved by the Jim Henson shop. Animatronics employs a complex series of mechanics to create a creature with much more subtle movements and expressions than a standard puppet, such as blinking eyes or opening gills. A puppeteer may often wear a full body suit and an animatronic head.

head. He [[YouKeepUsingThatWord didn't consider them to be "Muppets",]] though most people ignore that distinction.



In British slang, the word can be an insult, indicating someone who is clueless and incompetent.

* The Jim Henson Creature Shop will be bringing Freddy Fazbear and friends of the ''Film/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' movie to life with animatronic Muppets - in an unnerving example of Defictionalization.

* ''Series/{{Oobi}}'' is a puppet show, created for Creator/{{Noggin}} while Sesame Workshop and Nickelodeon co-produced all of its programming. The characters are literal hand puppets, described as "furless" Muppets in promotional statements, with acrylic eyes and accessories. Whether or not they actually count as puppets or Muppets is debatable, but it's worth noting that this is one of the most recent TV shows to refer to its characters as Muppets without actually featuring ''the'' Muppets.
