The Periodic Table of the Muppets

Dig this crazy scarf. Christmas is coming soon, and you can order it for me here.

Mike Baboon, who designed the table, describes it: A comprehensive depiction of many memorable Muppet characters from throughout the years (and some not-so-memorable ones as well).

Each square represents a different character and indicates the primary Muppeteer(s) for that character, as well as the year and production in which the character made its debut. Borders align with hair/hat colour, background aligns with skin/fur colour, and colour of the abbreviated name represents nose colour (for characters with noses that is).

The separate sections are based on the show the characters were either created for or most often associated with. The icons within each section are then organized by year of creation.

A closer look.     Thanks for the link, Sal!
