Mops and Puppets?

My understanding (which might be faulty) is that Muppets came about because someone mixed `mops` and `puppets` together.

If they did, or did not, it don't matter.. most anyone (in the north-western hemisphere) over the age of 25 will readily know Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Beaker and many of the other muppets.
And the rest that are under 25? Big Bird and Elmo.. and my own opinion is: F**k Elmo.
Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch, The Count, Snuffalupagus, Bert & Ernie and many more from Sesame Street.. but that elmo thing creeps me out in a touch-you-in-the-naughty-place kind of vibe.
Maybe if the voice wasn't so damnedly high-pitched & annoying..

Anyone know the name of that Bald-Eagle monster from The Muppet Show who had a deepish voice, was kind of a prude/stick in the mud?

Anyhow.. still poking fun at Lar deSouza.
Wasn't sure whether to go with text or not.. and what to call it..
Larmit the Frog? Kermit the Lar?..if the 2nd, what's a "Lar"?
Screw it, go with what sounds better.
So, one with, one without, text.

More Lar-madness as it comes!
