- June 7, 2012: Simon Doonan writes about his own narcissism, comparing himself to Miss Piggy: "Like Miss Piggy, I am completely in the thrall of moi, and I happily acknowledge the fact. When she said, 'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye,' Miss P. spoke for us both. There are two pink follow spots up in the sky: one is pointed directly at Miss Piggy, and the other one is drenching yours truly in flattering light." 
- June 8, 2012: Dahlia Lithwick espouses the Muppet Theory, a paradigm that divides the world into two types of people: Chaos Muppets and Order Muppets.
- "Chaos Muppets are out-of-control, emotional, volatile. They tend toward the blue and fuzzy. They make their way through life in a swirling maelstrom of food crumbs, small flaming objects, and the letter C. Cookie Monster, Ernie, Grover, Gonzo, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and—paradigmatically—Animal, are all Chaos Muppets. Zelda Fitzgerald was a Chaos Muppet. So, I must tell you, is Justice Stephen Breyer."
- "Order Muppets—and I’m thinking about Bert, Scooter, Sam the Eagle, Kermit the Frog, and the blue guy who is perennially harassed by Grover at restaurants (the Order Muppet Everyman)—tend to be neurotic, highly regimented, averse to surprises and may sport monstrously large eyebrows. They sometimes resent the responsibility of the world weighing on their felt shoulders, but they secretly revel in the knowledge that they keep the show running. Your first grade teacher was probably an Order Muppet. So is Chief Justice John Roberts."
- "Be it 'Pigs in Space,' Oscar’s garbage can, or producing a hit Broadway show in 19 hours, it’s always crucial to get the ratio of Order-to-Chaos exactly right."
- August 29, 2012: Jeremy Stahl reports on what Swedes think of The Swedish Chef. The verdict: they think he sounds Norwegian, and they wish we'd stop asking them. He also discusses the claim of an actual Swedish chef, Lars "Kuprik" Bäckman, that he may have been Jim Henson's inspiration for the character, an idea that Jerry Juhl categorically dismissed.  In a separate item, Stahl posts videos created by a Swedish YouTube user who has "translated" the Chef's gibberish into the Swedish words he thinks they sound like. 
- October 9, 2012: Rachael Larimore points out that while Big Bird is currently causing a bit of chaos in the Presidential race, he is in fact an Order Muppet; Dahlia Lithwick (originator of the Unified Theory of Muppets) confirms.  In a separate item, Brian Palmer explains why Sesame Street isn't on a commercial television network. 
- Sesame Street is one of the shows made fun of in If Kids Shows Were Real.
A cartoon created by Scott Gairdner satirizing both Muppet Babies and hastily-produced foreign knockoffs of American cartoons, supposedly an original Portuguese creation whose creator is apparently unaware of the existence of Muppet Babies.

Honorable mentions are also given to Sherlock Hemlock, Kermit the Frog and Guy Smiley.
- The video on the Top 10 Cartoons of the 1980s ranks Muppet Babies at #1.
