The Muppets are creatures described as ventrilouco puppets from the famous franchise of the same name.
The Muppets are distinguished from ventriloquist dolls, who can normally only move their head and face, in that their arms and other limbs are also mobile and expressive. In a live puppet show the puppeteer usually remains 'invisible', hidden behind the puppet theater. In The Muppets, simply putting the puppeteers out of the visual field of the camera was an innovation. Previously, on television, there was usually a puppet theater that hid the puppeteers, as in a live performance. Kermit the Frog (Kermit the Frog in Spain and René Frog in Latin America) is one of the great characters of the series, nominated for an Emmy on two occasions. In 2004, The Walt Disney Company acquired the rights to the characters (except those of Sesame Street), beginning to exploit them in various media: advertising, amusement parks, etc., even considering new top-level film projects.
