7 Disastrous Muppet Labs Inventions

Where the future of pain is being made today.

Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and his assistant Beaker (“Meep Meep”) are always hoping to create the next great scientific breakthrough. Or rather, Dr. Honeydew is hoping for that, whereas Beaker just hopes all his body parts remain in tact at the end of the day. Their experiments in Muppet Labs often go awry, but here are some of their most disastrous yet:


Automatic Wastebasket

Garbage disposals work the same way, just with tinier versions of this Muppet that live in your sink. That’s a science fact!


Electric Sledgehammer

I wanna be / your electric sledgehammer / why don’t you shout in pain?


Electric Nose Warmer

Remember when Jim Carrey used to say, “Sssssssmokin’?” Well, that catchphrase applies well to the video clip above.


Germ Enlarger

Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, you have doomed us all. Stop snickering!


Exploding Clothes

Beaker’s life was spared… this time.


Super Adhesive

If the invention doesn’t succeed at first, you should still stick with it. *Ba-dum-bum*



Beaker celebrated that Halloween in an emergency ward – like he does every Halloween.
