The month of May is upon us, and we’ve got a challenge for you that requires nothing more than a Twitter account and a healthy knowledge of the Muppets. Got both of those? Great, you’re in.
The idea for the Muppetational May Challenge comes from our pal Clayton Roederer, who originally conceived it as just a fun thing for a few select fans to do, but we’re going to blow the whole thing up by wrangling as many Muppet fans as we can to participate.
The idea is this: Every day in May, we’re encouraging everyone to share their favorite Muppet characters, moments, and other details. Each day has their own element, so we’ll all be sharing the same stuff on the same dates.
The full month’s schedule is below:
- May 1st: Your top 4 favorite Muppets
- May 2nd: Your top 4 favorite Sesame Street characters
- May 3rd: Your top 4 favorite Fraggle Rock characters
- May 4th: Your top 4 episodes of The Muppet Show

I know, you’re already deciding what all your Muppetational May choices will be.
If you want to join the party, just post the category and your answer along with the hashtag #MuppetationalMay. If you want, you can add a little explanation for your choice. For example, if Fozzie Bear was playing along, he might share a tweet like this on May 7th:
Sounds like fun, right?
Some of your ToughPigs friends will be joining in too. You can follow everyone’s responses via the hashtag, or feel free to follow Clayton Roederer (@cwroederer) or your ToughPigs head honchos Ryan Roe (@meryanroe) or myself (@joehennes) to see what we share.
