Muppet Babies was a cartoon series which originally aired on CBS in the eighties and nineties and was shown on Nickelodeon in reruns. It depicted infant versions of the Muppets living in a nursery under the care of the adult human simply named "Nanny", who was only seen from the waist down. Each episode was created through the imaginations of the Babies. The show was a part of the craze of taking popular cartoons and making junior versions of them. Others included Inspector Gadget with "Gadget Boy" and Tiny Toon Adventures. A reboot debuted in 2018, done in CGI.
