* TheFaceless: Nanny. You never see anything about her waist, but she has very distinctive socks at least.

'''''Muppet Babies''''' (1984-1991) was one of the few well-received SpinoffBabies conversions, partially because [[FirstInstallmentWins it was one of the first]]. Spinning off from ''Series/TheMuppetShow'', the show's premise was a takeoff from a sequence in ''Film/TheMuppetsTakeManhattan'' involving baby-versions of the characters, itself later referred to in an amusing callback. It also naturally spawned a side franchise of children's books.

* Animal even more so, and in his case, he can (and does) eat almost ANYTHING.

* BigEater: Piggy, [[FurryReminder being well, a pig and all.]] One time, when the gang wanted some cupcakes but they were all gone, Piggy demanded to know what happened to the rest of the cupcake with Nanny answered promptly to her, "You ate the last three."...much to Piggy blushing. Animal even more so, and in his case, he can (and does) eat almost ANYTHING.

* FracturedFairyTale: Several times throughout the series. For example, in "Slipping Beauty" instead pricking her finger to fall into a deep sleep is in 'Sleeping Beauty', Piggy as the sleeping princess, slips ontoa banana peel, falls and then goes into a deep sleep. Slipping Beauty.

** "Water Babies" begins with the babies pretending they are in a mine tunnel (actually a series of cardboard boxes) looking for treasure, until Nanny comes in with an aquarium of fish.* HandcuffedBriefcase: One of their {{Imagine Spot}}s had Kermit as a secret agent trying to transport a briefcase like this, and the others being enemy agents trying to steal it in one of those mystery on the train scenarios. Their attempts to steal it got pretty blatant, up to Gonzo trying to hide it under his hat ''while it was still cuffed to Kermit's wrist''!

* HalfwayPlotSwitch: Many episodes seem to start this way. The kids are usually involved in some sort of gang or group fantasy, until a little later, something arises (usually started by Nanny) that completely changes the focus of the episode. Such examples include...
** "Dental Hijinks" starts with the babies pretending they are in a big auto race, until they crash, and Fozzie notices he has a loose tooth, triggering the episode's main plot.
** "Eight Take Away One Equals Panic" begins with the babies pretending they are flying on an airliner plane, until they overhear Nanny on the phone and think she's planning on getting rid of one of them.
** "Gonzo's Video Show" starts with the babies pretending they are enjoying a day out at the beach, until Nanny arrives and lets them borrow her video camera she rented to make some fun videos with it.
** "Piggy's Hyper-Activity Book" begins with the kids trying to build a house out of cardboard boxes until it collapses, and then the babies decide to play with an activity book, thus getting the main plot underway.
** "Bad Luck Bear" starts with the babies in the bathtub pretending they are whale-hunting (with Gonzo as the whale), until Fozzie breaks a mirror and everyone believes he has bad luck.
** "Water Babies" begins with the babies pretending they are in a mine tunnel (actually a series of cardboard boxes) looking for treasure, until Nanny comes in with an aquarium of fish.

* ContinuitySnarl: Only if you consider the FridgeLogic: when is this show taking place anyway? Let's not even get started on the later season that introduced Baby Bean Bunny; Bean's a young kid in the normal Muppets! Or that fact that this was all just Piggy's dream sequence in the third film, but ''actual backstory'' in Film/AMuppetFamilyChristmas, but that would contradict Film/TheMuppetMovie ....yup, this is a galaxy-sized snarl.

It's somewhat justified, however, by the very nature of The Muppets. In pretty much every continuity they're entertainers, so any works that don't square with others can be called MutuallyFictional. Even TheMuppetMovie included a throw-away line indicating that liberties had been taken with the "real" events.
