The Muppets are coming back to TV with a new “short-form series,” ‘Muppet Moments.’ Muppet Moments is geared towards children ages 2-7 and will premier on Disney Jr. April 3. The show will feature some of our favorite Muppets and children having “funny conversations—and outrageously adorable moments.” We will be seeing some of our favorite Muppets: Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, The Great Gonzo, Fozzie Bear, Animal, Beaker, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and more.
Nancy Kanter, EVP of original programming and general manager at Disney Junior Worldwide had this to say about the show:
“The Muppets have been a part of nearly every family’s life and we are delighted to bring back fond memories of these iconic characters for parents and create new ones for the youngest members of the family. ‘Muppet Moments’ highlight the Muppets doing what they do best — making kids and families laugh, while showcasing compassion and heart. Our hope is that viewers will come away seeing how funny and special the Muppets really are.”
Kermit the Frog said:
“In show business, they say never work with kids or animals. Well, on Muppet Moments we break both those rules and a lot more – and the results are fun, silly, and even inspiring.”
You can catch the first few episodes on the Disney Channel starting Friday, April 3 at 8:25 AM. You wi be able to stream the shorts at watchdisneyjunior.go.com.
