    The Jim Henson Company Introduces Intimate Apparel For Muppetä Fans

    In celebration of the 25th Anniversary of The Muppet Show, The Jim Henson Company and Sugar D have introduced a new line of Muppet lingerie just in time for the back-to-school season. The lingerie line for Fall includes boy-cut briefs, string bikinis and underwear sets featuring a cast of Muppet favorites including Miss Piggy, Kermit the Frog, Animalä and Fozzie Bear.

    A second wave of merchandise featuring both women and men’s intimate apparel will come in upcoming months. Muppet-character pajamas, flannel and thermal sets and slippers for teens and adults will roll-out in time for the holiday season.

    “Intimate apparel has taken on a new look as tweens, teens and adults trade in their simple cottons for youthful styles like boy-cut briefs and pajamas that feature characters they grew up with,” said Betts FitzGerald, Senior Vice President, Licensing for The Jim Henson Company. “We wanted to expand our line of Muppet casual wear to include fun underwear and sleepwear and we couldn’t be more impressed with the new Muppet Sugar D line.”

    According to Dayna Brown, Designer of the lingerie line and creator of the Sugar D brand, "Muppets are easy to relate to, which makes them a little more personal. The most personal clothing you wear are undies for sure. Muppets and sleepwear is the perfect combination for sweet dreams. From pajamas with dancing Kermits to boxers covered in the smiling face of Animal-- Muppet intimate apparel and sleepwear has something for everyone!"

    The zany cast of The Muppet Show has brought joy to generations since their television introduction a quarter of a century ago. The show first debuted in syndication on September 26, 1976 and continued for five seasons, with 120 shows. Since that time thousands of licensed Muppet products have been introduced into the marketplace, specifically 5,000, over the past ten years alone. Additionally, hundred of millions of consumer impressions of the Muppet name are generated through consumer products and cross promotions.

    The Jim Henson Company, an established leader in family entertainment for more than 45 years, is a multimedia production company; one of the top character licensors in the industry; a leading publisher of children’s books and home to Jim Henson Television, Jim Henson Pictures, Jim Henson Interactive, Jim Henson Home Entertainment and Jim Henson’s Creature Shop™. The Company is headquartered in Los Angeles with offices and production facilities in New York and London. The Jim Henson Company is a wholly owned subsidiary of EM.TV & Merchandising AG based in Munich, Germany. The Jim Henson Company website is located at: www.henson.com.

    I had honestly thought I would make it through my entire life, never seeing the words Muppet and Intimate in the same sentence.
    I think if I came to bed, and my wife was wearing Scooter Lingerie, I would look for a good book to read. (I tried to make that P.C for the younger readers, I assume the adults got the message)

    Personally i'd think Muppet underwear would be quite a turn on, and at least they aren't doing Gonzo thongs for men. You know what they say - big nose, big ........ erm 'feet'.

    LOL, maybe you should meet the person who started the "How TO Enjoy Your Dr. Honeydew..." thread, it sounds like you two would get along famously! :D
  5. *sigh*

    This may be the closest I get to actually get to take Janice or Mokey to bed with me...

    (though I still hold onto hope)

    Muppet thongs!!?!?!?! I guess that makes sense. After 25 years now the Muppets can be up someone's...nevermind. I'll just let that one go.
    this gives new meaning to "giving the Mupets 'more exposure' this year"

    Oh I don't know I kind of like the idea of Muppet thongs. As someone who has been intimately involved with trying to get Muppets into hard to reach places, nice to know we aren't the only thing...

    Badum-bump!

    Turn about is fair play

    after all, the Muppets have had hands up their backsides for years

    Muppet Quilter,
    Thanks. That's a much nicer way of saying what I was trygn to say earlier.

  14. I'm just waitin' for this to be mentioned on "Friends" next season...

    Monica: "So, how did it go with Ross?" :)

    Rachel: "Oh please Monica, the boy wore Muppet underwear!" :mad:

    (audience laughter)

    Chandler: "Ross has 'Muppet underwear'? I didn't even know they made 'Muppet underwear'." :confused:

    Joey: "Oh sure, Gonzo, Animal, Kermit---it's great, we used to just watch 'The Muppet Show', now we can sleep with 'The Muppet Show'!" :D

    (audience laughter)

    Phoebe: "Yeah, I wouldn't mind having Gonzo on my _ _ _..." *brings cup to lips*

    (audience laughter)

    That's pretty good! I think Joey might actually show the other's his Animal (or better yet- Miss Piggy) boxers.

    You know we need to get Dayna, the underwear designer here for an 'Ask Dayna' thread. The questions could get very intertesting ! ;-)
