The Ugliest Muppet Toys in Existence

On the left is the Muppet named Pepe the King Prawn. He's not supposed to be pretty; he is supposed to be a shrimp. But the abomination on the right is supposed to look like Pepe, and it does not. Would you buy this plush toy for your five-year-old Muppet fan? The astonishing part is that this toy did not win the competition for the ugliest Muppet toy- it came in fifth. I did not want to traumatize you with those who scored higher, so you'll have to see for yourself.

Tough Pigs, a site dedicated to Muppet fandom, unveils the results of the Ugly Muppet Toy Pageant 2024. The 26 contestants are revealed from the least objectionable to the ugliest and least recognizable Muppet toys submitted by fans and voted for by readers. Each has "color commentary" from voters who try to guess how each toy went so wrong. You still have to wonder if there was any quality control in the designs at all, especially with those that are officially licensed Muppet merchandise (although you can bet that not all of them are).  

They've been doing these ugly Muppet toy pageants for years; check the previous collections out if you are so inclined. -via Metafilter
