Statistics celebrated on various Muppet Wiki anniversaries. See also: Milestones and Press Coverage.
Muppet Wiki was founded on December 5, 2005. The very first article created on the wiki was for Fozzie Bear with the simple (yet factual) text: "Fozzie Bear is a bear." The wiki's description of Fozzie has since grown with remarkable depth and breadth of coverage.
Muppet Wiki has over 37,000 encyclopedic articles on all sorts of topics related to Jim Henson, Sesame Street, The Muppet Show, and The Muppets Studio. If you were to read one article a day, it would take you over 105 years to read them all!
