'''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.
βˆ’
A substantial number of the Muppet characters are most commonly seen unclothed, although ironically, the always fully clothed [[Janice]] is the only outspoken proponent of nudity. Outside of costume roles and recurring skits, the following characters most often appear in the felt or foamy altogether, save for the occasional accessories such as hats, ties, or bows. The majority of these revealing characters are animals or monsters, thus curtailing concerns over flagrant self-exhibitionism.

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.
