Muppet Studios is a title that has been used in several Muppet projects as the fictional movie studio that produces content for The Muppets. The similarly-named "The Muppets Studio" would later be established as the real subsidiary under Disney that manages The Muppets following their purchase of the franchise in 2004.

You're the Director


Muppet Studios was first seen in the 1988 View-Master Interactive Vision game Muppets Studios Presents: You're the Director. The Muppet's Hollywood film studio is falling behind schedule in the production of numerous films and is in need of help. The studio is going broke, and the bossy head of the studio, Yolanda Steel, focuses on the financials. Depending on the number of retrieved money sacks in the game, the studio is either saved or shut down.

Locations within the theater include Studio Not-To-B.

The Muppets

2010-Set-(IMG 4030)

Muppet Studios was a central location in the film The Muppets. The studio is located in Hollywood, just off of Hollywood Boulevard. Walter, Gary, and Mary visit the now-decrepit studio on their vacation. The studio tour guide (Alan Arkin) says that Muppet Studios is "where dreams can come true." Tours (originally 50¢) are now $1.50 and poorly attended (the only other attendees are a group of Japanese tourists who think they are on a Universal Studios tour).

The central feature of the studio is The Muppet Theatre, home of The Muppet Show.

A geological survey (along with Tex Richman's sense of smell) says there is oil under the studio. Richman tries to get ownership of the studio under the guise of turning the studio into a Muppet museum.

The Muppets reunite in an attempt to raise the money needed to save the studio.

Signs and locations within the studio include:

In the film's opening sequence, Walter receives the Muppet Studios Official Guide book for his birthday. The "Muppet Studios Tour Map" in the book shows such additional locations as:

  • Art Alley
  • Beaker's World
  • Buffoon Lagoon
  • Fozzie's Joke Corner
  • Miss Piggy's Conture Tour
  • Miss Piggy Plaza

The exterior scenes for Muppet Studios were filmed at the Jim Henson Company Lot, with the exteriors of the Muppet Theater being filmed at the El Capitan Theatre.
