Death according to The Sesame Street Dictionary

"He died? And this is supposed to be a kids' movie!"
-- Rizzo the Rat, Muppet Treasure Island

A list of characters who have passed away. Due to the cartoon-like nature of the Muppets, this list does not include characters subjected to seemingly fatal accidents (such as explosions or being eaten) without other evidence of the character's actual death. This list does not include death of performers or retirement/absence of a character without any on-screen evidence or confirmation that the character actually died.
