All Of The Original Seasons Of The Muppets Are Coming To Disney+
“It’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights…”
We’ve got some really BIG news for your Tuesday morning Disney friends! Disney+ has just announced that “The Muppet Show,” Jim Henson’s original iconic variety series that started it all, will begin streaming Friday, February 19 exclusively on Disney+. When we say ALL seasons we mean ALL seasons including 4&5 which have never previously been released on home entertainment!
In the short time that the Muppets have been a part of Walt Disney Imagineering, they have appeared in their first hit streaming series, “Muppets Now,” on Disney+ as well as continue to star in their own humorous and endearing videos which appear both online and through social media. But, there’s something extra special about going back to the source!
“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,” said Kermit the Frog. “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.”
To put you in the mood here’s the Original theme song…
“The Muppet Show” stars Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, the Swedish Chef, and more in a groundbreaking and hilarious twist on the classic variety show. Each episode expertly blends original songs, sketch comedy, and guest stars into a prime-time hit for all ages. Some previous celebrities featured on the show include Steve Martin, Elton John, Liza Minelli, Alice Cooper, Julie Andrews, Bernadette Peters, Diana Ross, Gladys Knight, Debbie Harry, Gene Kelly, Mark Hamill and so many more.
With all five seasons of “The Muppet Show,” Muppet favorites like “Muppet Treasure Island” celebrating its 25th anniversary next month, and new hits like “Muppets Now,” Disney+ is now the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational streaming service on Earth.
