Muppet Learning Keys is a Muppet computer toy developed in 1984 by Christopher Cerf and Bill Prady[1] with Koala Technologies and Sunburst Software. It was available for both the Commodore 64 and the Apple computer.

The hardware/software combination was meant to teach children ages three and up how to type and start using a computer.

The keyboard came with a software disk and had several Muppet and non-Muppet related programs released that were compatible with it. These include Muppetville, Muppet Slate, and Muppet Word Book,[2] and the Sesame Street title Astro-Grover.


The product was promoted by Beaker on the television show Family Computing, and in a photo featuring Miss Piggy spoofing "the Apple IIc girl".
