The Muppets are Back!
I loved the Muppets Panel when I attended the D23Expo. They were there to talk about their brand new series that premiers tonight, Sept 22!
When I was little I looked forward to watching the Muppet Show. Granted it was repeats, I still enjoyed it. It was a variety show with lots of guests. I was really excited when I heard they were coming back.
This time it’s a little different. They’re not doing a variety store. In fact, they’re returning to primetime with a contemporary, documentary-style show. For the first time ever, a series will explore the Muppets’ personal lives and relationships, both at home and at work, as well as romances, breakups, achievements, disappointments, wants and desires.
Starring: The Muppets
So basically Miss Piggy has her own show and her manager is Kermit. Here’s the twist though, they’ve broken up! I never thought I’d see the day when Kermit and Piggy were no more. Alas, they are and Kermit is even seeing some one new!
Yes, you’ll be introduced to Denise.
Not only that, but there will be guest appearances for Piggy’s shows.
This is a show on primetime and there is adult humor. If you’re worried about your kids I’d suggest watching it first before deciding if they can 😉
Beyond the announcement of the show the panel of muppeteers actually brought the muppets and answered questions as the muppets.
They were even interactive with the audience.
They gave tips and even sang and dance. It was a lot of fun to watch.
So back to the new show:
