Baby Gonzo Dons Dress in Recent Disney Jr. Episode
Earlier this week, an episode of the Disney Junior “Muppet Babies” reboot aired, featuring Gonzo awed by incredible ballgowns in a book of princesses before their party.
The episode, titled “Gonzo-rella,” features the cast of mini-Muppets hosting a “royal ball.” Prior to the ball, Piggy declares that party attendees must dress as knights, if they are boys.
“According to the Royal Handbook, the girls come as princess, and the girls come as knight,” Piggy declared. The strong advice comes after Gonzo exclaims, “Wow! Get a load of that dress!”
Kermit reinforces to Gonzo that all will be well, and the group of Muppets cheers “Hoozah.” Despite the cheers of his friends Fozzy Bear, Rizzo the Rat and Monster, Gonzo does not seem thrilled with the sitaution.
In my eyes, the Muppets represent the ability to be accepting and loving of others, even if they may be a little different. To embrace those who others may shun.
I’m glad to see that philosophy is still going strong. pic.twitter.com/9mnKBdCsIT
