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.

References to nakednessEdit

  • In episode 206 of The Muppet Show, Sam the Eagle gives an editorial about nudity, complaining that underneath their clothing the entire population of the world is naked. Sam's editorial comes to an end when he realizes that underneath his feathers, he, too, is naked.
  • SkekSil the chamberlain is shamefully stripped of his clothes in The Dark Crystal after losing in the Trial by Stone ritual.
  • In The Muppets Take Manhattan, Janice again comments on nudity: "Look, buddy. I don't take my clothes off for anyone, even if it is artistic."
  • The Muppets reenact the story of The Emperor's New Clothes in Muppet Classic Theater. Despite usually being seen without clothes, Fozzie (as the emperor) is revealed naked, save for a pair of boxer shorts. The citizenry think that since the Emperor isn't wearing clothing, that public nudity must be the latest fad.
  • In the Muppet Heights sketch from Muppets Tonight episode 203, Chaz (played by Sal Minella) demands that Amanda (played by Heather Locklear) return the incriminating photos she took of him naked.
  • Despite evidence to the contrary, Miss Piggy says in a 2014 appearance on E! Countdown to the Red Carpet that she turned down the Margot Robbie role in The Wolf of Wall Street because she doesn't do nudity.
  • In The Muppets episode "Got Silk?" Pepe the King Prawn, and Rizzo attempt to take off Gonzo's suit pants (without removing his shoes first), Kermit walks in on them, and asks them to always wear pants in the office, at which point Rizzo snaps back with "Okay, Mr. Naked."

Naked MuppetsEdit

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."
  • On television, Herry Monster, is unclothed, like most Sesame Street monsters; however in illustrations, storybooks and some merchandise he's invariably clad in pants with pink stripes.
  • From her introduction until Season 33 (when she started wearing a tutu), Zoe was unclothed, apart from necklaces, bracelets, and barrettes. In Season 49, she returns to a sans-tutu wardrobe. However, Zoe still wears her tutu on illustrations, storybooks and merchandise now.
  • 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.
