    The following tropes are common to many or all entries in the The Muppets franchise.
    For tropes specific to individual installments, visit their respective work pages.
    • Amazon Admirer: Kermit may claim that he doesn't have time for a serious relationship with Miss Piggy, but he can be entranced when she shows off her martial arts... provided he is not the target. Gonzo has also shown interest in Miss Piggy being tough as nails, but then this is Gonzo.

    1. Legally speaking, "The Muppets" now only refers to The Muppet Show characters owned by Disney, although Sesame Workshop has permission to use the term to refer to Sesame Street characters. The Fraggle Rock characters (still owned by the Henson company) were Muppets to start with, but are no longer referred to as such.
    2. (This brief-lived HBO series holds the distinction of being one where the main characters were built by the Creature Workshop instead of the Muppet Workshop, giving them a look rather shockingly different from the paradigm seen on most other Muppet productions.)
