Nudity or nakedness is the state of wearing no clothing. Wearing of clothing is a predominantly human characteristic, however many of the anthropomorphic animals, creatures and characters of the Muppet universe also wear various clothes. Yet still a number of the Muppet characters, such as Kermit the Frog, are most commonly seen unclothed.

Naked Muppets

Due to animal and abstract nature of many Muppet characters, it is not uncommon for there to be Muppet characters that are unclothed (or only partially clothed) with no shame or commotion from others. Occasionally typically unclothed Muppets will dress up for costumed roles or will wear seasonal or role-related clothing. Below are some exceptions or noteworthy examples of Muppets that don't wear clothing.

  • Baby Bear often appears without clothes (although, like many of the puppet characters, he is not routinely shown below the waist on camera), however the walk-around version of the character wears overalls.
  • In the teleplay for the Fraggle Rock episode "All Work and All Play", writer Jerry Juhl describes Doozer wardrobe on the morning of Cotterpin's helmet ceremony: "The female Doozers all wear little flowered hats and the men are in bowlers. Otherwise they are nude. This, apparently, is formal attire for state and religious occasions."
  • Herry Monster, like most Sesame Street monsters, is unclothed; however in illustrations, storybooks and some merchandise he's invariably clad in pants with pink stripes.
  • In early appearances Rizzo the Rat, like most of the Muppet rats, was unclothed. He and the other rats have since adapted to wearing clothing (or at least shirts) on a regular basis.
