Research released on Oct. 20, 2015 from the Parents Television Council shows that the over 4 million children ages 2-11 who watched The Muppets were exposed to adult-themed content every 3 minutes and 38 seconds during the first four episodes. The Muppets isn’t a show for kids, yet it was supposedly created for families to watch together.

The stars of the show, Kermit and Miss Piggy, delivered nearly half of all sexual innuendos and references on show. Additionally, one bar scene in the 4th episode Muppet characters were shown drinking and becoming drunk.

It is a tragedy that one of the most iconic children’s television shows in history, The Muppets, would include adult content.
