The Muppet CD-ROM: Muppets Inside is a PC computer game produced by Starwave in 1996. The title is a play on Intel's advertising slogan, "Intel Inside," meaning that one could find an Intel processor inside a computer marked with its sticker. The plot of Muppets Inside involves several Muppet characters getting trapped inside a computer. Bunsen sends Kermit and Fozzie Bear into the computer to rescue the others by travelling around the Bitmap on a Databus, continuing the computer parody theme.
