Die Muppet Babies is the German language translation of the Muppet Babies comic book, published on a bi-monthly basis. The magazine series ran from 1987 to 1990. The stories were illustrated by Marie Severin.
There are 11 regular issues in total, featuring comics and activity pages. Additional stories have been published in one "Comic-Super-Album," and two smaller "Comic-Taschenbücher" ("comic pocket books," which include up to seven stories).
The two "Sonderhefte" ("special issues") as well as the last three regular books (consisting of double issues, combining issues #12/13, #14/15 and #16/17), are reissues of previous stories.
- The first two issues of the magazine use a special German logo for the series, with the German spelling on "Babies" exchanging the "ie" with a "y" — though the splash pages on the inside feature the original English language logo. The German logo was dropped with issue #3, and the Jim Henson trademark signature was added.
- Issue #7 includes a random set of four Panini Muppet Babies trading stickers to promote the collection.
- "Comic-Super-Album" #1 features a reissue of the title story from Die Fraggles issue #1 as a bonus comic. Later "Comic-Super-Albums" by the publisher featured Ewoks comics, among others.
