The Muppets Take Manhattan was adapted by Marvel Comics in 1984, as the 68 page story in Marvel Super Special #32, August. The script was adapted by Stan Kay with art by Dean Yeagle and Jacqueline Roettcher.

The adaptation was reprinted as a three-issue miniseries cover-dated November 1984; these were the first comics released under Marvel's new Star Comics imprint for young children. Six months later, Marvel debuted the ongoing Star Comics titles, which included both a Muppet Babies comic and a Fraggle Rock comic, along with series featuring other licensed characters, including Ewoks, Heathcliff, Strawberry Shortcake, and Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham.

Unlike in the film, the comic depicts Gonzo, Floyd Pepper, Animal, Janice, Dr. Teeth and Zoot in their customary outfits from The Muppet Show.

Although the seating at the wedding differs significantly from the movie's depiction, a handful of Sesame Street characters, including Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Grover, Ernie, Bert, and Herry Monster, still appear at the wedding.
