Direct Connect released three lines of Muppet plush.

Muppet University

The 1989 set of plush dolls included Kermit the Frog in a "Muppet University" sweatshirt, Miss Piggy in a poodle skirt, Fozzie Bear, Rowlf the Dog, Gonzo and Animal. The poodle-skirted Piggy may have been an early reference to "Muppet High", a proposed Muppet series featuring the Muppets as 1950s high school students.


In 1991, Direct Connect produced a set of smaller "Toytoons" dolls, with plastic heads and fabric bodies.

My First Muppet

Another 1991 set was called "My First Muppet", intended for toddlers. These dolls pictured the Muppet characters with a more youthful appearance, and were entirely plush.
