Between 1977 and 1979, the German company Schleich released a series of 13 Muppet Show PVC figures. Zoot is the rarest of these figures. In America, the figures were sold at the Muppet Stuff store in New York City. They could also be ordered through Muppet Magazine.
Statler and Waldorf were re-released by Igel in 2000. They came in a cardboard theater box that read: "Die beiden Alten aus der Muppet Show!" ("The two old men from the Muppet Show").
Figures on Bases
Schleich also released versions of the figures standing on German, Dutch, and English text bases. Fozzie's Dutch base reads: "What, another year older already? Best Wishes!" Sweetums' German base reads: "I love you so much I could eat you!" Miss Piggy's English base reads: "Hope your birthday's like me. Beautiful - Wild - Unforgettable!"
In 1987, the Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo and Animal PVCs came packaged as promotional items with a special Nutella Muppet Show Diorama.
