The Penguins are a group of Muppet birds who appeared in many Muppet productions. They are unisex or genderless according to Scooter in The Muppets' Wizard of Oz.

The first Muppet penguin was built by Brian Henson in which Frank Oz used it for the "Lullaby of Broadway" number on The Muppet Show episode 304 and was referred to as "Winky Pinkerton" in episode 308. Starting with episode 320's "Hawaiian War Chant" number, four penguins appeared and a whole group of penguins first appeared in episode 321 as the Pilgrim Penguins and the Endangered Species Chorus Line.

Penguins are featured as musicians in the orchestra pit in a few Muppet productions. Nicky Napoleon and His Emperor Penguins can be seen in both puppet and animatronic form in Muppet*Vision 3D. They provided background music in Little Muppet Monsters.
