The Muppet…Certainly a Recognizable Design

Posted by innovativeip on September 15, 2010

Today’s Patent of the Day is U.S. design patent no. D186,119, issued September 15, 1959:

Today's Patent of the Day

Issued on behalf of the late Jim Henson and his co-inventor, this puppet design was the basis for an amazing collection of characters and icons, many still popular today.  This Patent of the Day is so fun, I suggest downloading the patent, and reading it outloud in your best KERMIT THE FROG voice.  You’ll find the patent at, on the “of interest” page.  Enjoy!
