Professor Ryan Dosier and sometimes guest lecturers head a semi-weekly lecture on various topics within the Muppet world, keeping you up to date on your Muppetology knowledge. As an introductory course, Muppetology 101 has covered topics such as character recasts and character couplings and in the future will look at various Muppet productions and the order they came in.
Have you ever wondered how some Muppet fans became Muppet fans? How did a kid like Maxwell Jessop, born years after the Jim Henson era, come to love the Muppets?

In his first, and currently longest, series, "?" with Jarrod Fairclough, frequent contributor Jarrod Fairclough provided us with some wonderful questions that a lot of Muppet fans always wanted to ask, but never knew who to ask or why to ask them. Jarrod solved this problem with some wonderful Muppet celebrity guests including Sesame Street artist Joe Mathieu, Muppet writer Jim Lewis, and Muppeteer Bill Barretta.

The Muppet Mindset Presents... How To... is a series of articles started way back in 2010 when Lisa the Intern wrote an article about How To... Train Your Dog to Be Like Sprocket. The series continued briefly later that year when James Carroll made an amazing How To... Draw Pepe in 10 Easy Steps piece using Flash. The series was revived in 2012 by Maxwell Jessop whose articles so far have included How To... Make Friends with a Rat and How To... Become a Superhero.

In September, 2010, one year after Ryan Dosier started this website, we featured The Muppet Mindset's One Year Anniversary Celebration with three great posts. The first featured birthday wishes from Muppet fans on Facebook, Twitter, and from frequent contributors to The Muppet Mindset. The second post was an incredible collection of congratulatory remarks from Muppet royalty including Pepe the King Prawn, Matt Vogel, ToughPigs.com's Joe Hennes and Ryan Roe, and many more. The final day was Ryan Dosier's day to thank everyone for everything and ramble on for far too long--which is what he tends to do every day.

The Diary of an Obsessed Muppet Fan was Ryan Dosier's noble and unrealized goal to watch something Muppety every week and write about them in a diary that he didn't love anymore. The plan was to go in chronological order, starting with The Muppet Show Season 1, but by the time he got to Rocky Mountain Holiday, he sort of gave up. Thankfully, there's plenty of great stuff to read from what Ryan did get through!
In 2010, Ryan Dosier and family traveled to Orlando, Florida to visit the greatest place on Earth. He chronicled this experience and all the Muppety happenings in The Muppet Mindset Goes to Walt Disney World. Part 1 follows Ryan through the Magic Kingdom and Epcot, while Part 2 goes to Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios, plus Downtown Disney and other locales.

Another series by Ryan Dosier, Muppets on Your iPhone featured reviews of applications from iTunes featuring the Muppets of Sesame Street and one featuring Animal.
The British Correspondent, known for his cruelties to Ryan's cat, penned his first continuing series with It's Not Easy Being Mean, a collection of profiles on the great villains in the world of the Muppets. From Doc Hopper all the way to The Muppet Show Comic Book's Kismet the Toad, The British Correspondent explains the Muppet bad guys better than anyone.
Another series from Lisa the Intern, The Epic CD-ROM Family Adventure, takes us on a journey as Lisa plays through the 1996 computer game for Muppet Treasure Island. Unfortunately, she never finished, and the world may never know what happened to Long John Silver.
