The Muppet Musicians of Bremen (released on home video as Tales from MuppetLand: The Muppet Musicians of Bremen) is a 1972 television special that is an adaptation of the Grimm Brothers story Town Musicians of Bremen featuring The Muppets. Kermit the Frog hosts and narrates the special.


Leroy the Donkey, T.R. the Rooster, Rover Joe the Hound Dog and Catgut the Pussycat run away from their abusive owners Mordecai Sledge, Farmer Lardpork, Mean Floyd and Caleb Siles and become traveling musicians. At the end of the story, their owners turn out to be robbers. Rover Joe, Leroy, T.R. and Catgut chase them away and live together happily in their barn.

An audio version of the story was also released.


Later syndicated alongside The Muppet Show.
