  • Lubbock Lou is not pictured in the entry for Lubbock Lou's Jughuggers.
  • Sal Minella's name is misspelled as Sal Monella, a literal spelling of salmonella, the bacteria for which the character's name parodies.
Character Debuts

Not an error, but for characters who debuted on Muppets Tonight, the episode numbers given are the production number instead of broadcast number.

  • Dr. Teeth's debut is listed as "The Muppet Show pilot" (sic) which aired on March 19, 1975. Taping of the pilot took place in December 1974; however, Dr. Teeth was seen by audiences prior to this on the March 18, 1975 broadcast of The Tonight Show (one night before Sex and Violence) and taped an appearance on The Mike Douglas Show a month before.
  • Mulch's debut is listed as episode 509. Going by production order (which is what the book does), he was first seen in episode 501, which was the last episode taped.
  • Walter's debut is listed as The Muppets which was released on November 23, 2011. Filming of the movie took place in late 2010; however, Walter debuted to audiences eight nights before the film's release during an appearance on Dancing with the Stars (November 15, 2011).
  • While not entirely untrue, a handful of character debuts listed are just for the shows they debuted on as opposed to specific episode numbers. Woodland Creatures are simply listed as debuting on The Muppet Show (although some were actually reworked and recycled animal puppets created for Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas), while Nigel's debut is listed as Muppets Tonight, without listing the episode number.
