Introducing: MuppetCards.com

Miss Piggy Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Our Muppets Cards Blog has been created to allow our Muppet Cards (MC) customers' to leave their feedback, as well as easily keep you up to date with the latest card additions here at Muppet Cards.
The Muppet Show characters are famous the world over and so in keeping with the aims of our parent website, ReallyFabCards.com, to sell only well known branded cards, including the Muppets as a card range, was an easy decision to make.

However, the success of the their sales has meant we decided to launch a card site dedicated to the range. We have included all the characters in print in card and will add more as they become available.

They are great cards and fabulous from the perspective of pure nostalgia for forty year old 'somethings'. To our great surprise, Animal ("Love You") was our best seller for Valentines! How romantic (we think but not 100% sure!). And for drummers the world over...enjoy.

Animal Love You

Gift Wrapping

We really appreciate the importance of lovely packaging and as the cards are so lovely, we want them to kept in a pretty place! So, as a special treat for your cards (very useful if they are a present to a Muppet friend), when you spend just £25, your cards will be sent in a beautiful box. We offer a choice of a pink box or an ivory one.

About the Muppets

Kermit Happy Birthday

The Muppets are a family of puppet/marionette characters created by Jim Henson in the 1950's. The first, and most, famous Muppet is "Kermit the Frog", created in 1955 for a daily two-minute puppet show called, "Sam and Friends." Kermit had feet instead of flippers and no collar, becoming "Kermit the Frog" later, in a show called "Hey Cinderella." In 1969, the Children's Television Workshop began televising Sesame Street, starring Muppet characters, "Bert" and "Ernie", "Oscar the Grouch", "Cookie Monster", "Grover", and "Big Bird."

Gonzo Happy Birthday

The Muppets got their own television series, a variety show hosted by "Kermit", in 1976. It ran for five years and reached audiences in more than 100 countries. Among the characters created for the show were "Miss Piggy", "Fozzie the Bear," "Gonzo," "Dr. Bunsen Honeydew," "Animal", "Beaker," and "The Swedish Chef". The Muppets also "starred" in a string of films, including, The Muppet Movie, The Muppets Take Manhattan, and The Great Muppet Caper.

There were two other Muppet TV series, one called, Fraggle Rock, and the other, The Storyteller.
