Even though their television show was cancelled, The Muppets are still one of the greatest pop culture phenomenons of our time. Ever since I was a small lad, I’ve been enjoying the adventures of Kermit, Ms. Piggy, Gonzo, and the rest of their hilarious cast!

In 1976, the Muppet Show debuted on network television, and kicked off an entertainment phenomenon. From television to movies to books to magazines to comic books, the Muppets have been a part of our lives for 40 years, and Diamond Select Toys is honored to play a part in capturing the lovable Muppets characters in three dimensions. Now, fans can expand their Muppet collections even more with the newest assortment of Muppets Minimates, on sale starting this week at comic shops, specialty stores and Toys”R”Us!
