King Arthur is an important figure in English mythology, where he appears as the ideal of kingship both in war and peace. He is the central character in a cycle of legends known as the Matter of Britain. Although there has been debate over whether King Arthur might in fact have existed, like Robin Hood, he is generally considered a figure of myth and folklore, but one closely tied to both the literature and political history of Britain. Arthur and the Arthurian legends in general (including such figures as the wizard Merlin, Guinevere, and Lancelot), have often been portrayed, spoofed, or referenced in Muppet/Henson productions.

Appearances

  • The human character Prince Arthur Charming is named after the king, as evident by the song that plays when he is introduced in Hey Cinderella. The song states that although he is named Prince Charming, he wil become King Arthur.

References

  • In The Muppets on Puppets, during the fairy tale using hand puppets, King Fred uses the exclamation "Good Knights of the Round Table!"
