The tapes are aimed at children under 7, who are invited to "play along" with the Muppet characters -- telling jokes, singing songs, drawing pictures and making sound effects.
Two new Muppet characters, P.J. and Kai-Lee, were created for the video series. P.J. and Kai-Lee are a young brother and sister who are excited and eager to learn; they take the part of the viewer, asking questions and expressing interest.
The main Muppet cast also played a role in the the tapes. Kermit the Frog appears in some of the titles. Fozzie Bear takes the lead role in Hey, You're as Funny as Fozzie Bear, and Rowlf the Dog headlines Sing-Along, Dance-Along, Do-Along. Miss Piggy, Animal and Luncheon Counter Monster also make cameo appearances, and several new characters are introduced.
One of the tapes, Mother Goose Stories, features three tales from the Mother Goose Stories TV series. After each section, Mother Goose and her Goslings lead the viewers in an activity related to the story.
In an interview, Henson talks about the purpose of the video series.
