Description:Craig Shemin, author of the lavishly illustrated and meticulously researched new book The Muppets Character Encyclopedia (2014, DK Publishing), will present a program featuring memorable moments from the biggest Muppet stars, as well as rare highlights of some lesser known characters featured in his book. The program features video clips and Muppet trivia contests and prizes, followed by a book signing (copies of the book are available for purchase in the Museum store).

Among the featured games will be "Man or Muppet," where audience members will have to guess if an unusual name belongs to a real person or a Muppet character; "Piggy, Babs, or Both," in which contestants are challenged to determine if certain biographical facts pertain to Miss Piggy, Barbra Streisand, or both of the legendary superstars; and a Muppet Impression contest. While some video clips will be used in game play, other clips include a compilation of memorable moments from some of the characters featured in The Muppets Character Encyclopedia.

From Kermit the Frog, to Animal and Fozzie Bear, the whole menagerie of Jim Henson’s Muppet creations are included in The Muppets Character Encyclopedia. Each page of this fun and friendly guide features a different Muppet profile packed with interesting facts about these beloved characters. The book also includes full bios of the characters featured in the upcoming movie The Muppets Most Wanted.
Dates and times: Saturday, February 22 at 1:00 PM Cost:Tickets are included with Museum admission ($12 adults / $9 seniors and students with ID / $6 children 3–12) and free for Museum members.
