It's funny because the Muppets were really never about that; Jim wanted to be wild, zany and push boundaries, and just because the characters are "cute" people feel the need to brand them that way. They are really just timeless and wholesome, and transcend any preconceived notion of what they should be.As for the plunger, as someone who's worked on legit Muppets stuff under Henson and Disney, I can tell you that weapons for most characters who are on the same tier that the Muppets happen to be on are a no-go. In this day and age, I can't really fault them too much for that.
Edit: I don't think it helps that they share so much to Sesame Street that they have to adhere to that standard as well.
