You Can Start Streaming The Series In February
Beginning Feb. 19, you can stream (and for the very first time) all five seasons The Muppet Show on Disney+.
As shared by the Disney Parks Blog, Seasons 4 and 5 of the series have never been available on home entertainment, but that all changes come February.
For those unaware, The Muppet Show is like a variety show incorporating sketch comedy, original songs, and even guest performances from some very famous individuals, including Steve Martin, Elton John, Liza Minelli, Alice Cooper, Julie Andrews, Bernadette Peters, Diana Ross, Gladys Knight, Gene Kelly, Mark Hamill, and more.
The Tease That Started It All
“Calling all Muppet fans!” the tweet began. “Get ready for a major and important Muppet announcement coming soon. What is it? We have no idea.”
Well, they weren’t lying. This is a “major and important Muppet announcement.”
Of course, the Muppets, themselves, are ecstatic about the news.
Even Kermit gave the Disney Parks Blog a statement. “It’s going to be great to welcome back longtime fans, and to give a new generation of fans a chance to see how we got our start, how Miss Piggy became a star and so much more,” the beloved green frog said.
He continued, “Today, I’m proud to say: ‘It’s time to play the music, light the lights and meet the Muppets on Disney Plus tonight!'” And as for Statler and Waldorf, the two old guys in the balcony, I can only add: “Sorry, guys, but….here we go again.”
Both Kermit and Miss Piggy even tweeted about the news.
First, Kermit hilariously posted, “I haven’t been this excited since I dropped my tail!”
And in typical Miss Piggy fashion, the diva tweeted, “A star is born! Want to see where the world first discovered moi?”
We do, Miss Piggy. We very much do. Who’s ready for even more of the Muppets in their life?
