Last week, Disney teased some big Muppet announcement and today, Disney has announced that all five seasons of the classic “Muppet Show” will be coming to Disney+ on Friday 19th February.
This has been one of the most requested shows by fans since Disney+ launched. The show has never been available to stream on any other platform before this. In addition to the first three seasons, fans will be able to enjoy seasons 4 and 5, which have never previously been released on home entertainment.
Kermit the Frog and his fellow Muppets put on a vaudeville show at their theatre, bringing in a famous celebrity to help out for each episode. … Working against him are “Statler” and “Waldorf”, the two hecklers who always were in the same balcony and Scooter’s uncle who owned the theater.
The five seasons consists of 120 episodes and was originally broadcast between 1976 and 1981.
“The Muppet Show” stars Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, the Swedish Chef, and more in a groundbreaking twist on the classic variety show, blending original songs, sketch comedy, and guest stars into a prime-time hit for all ages.
“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.”
Originally premiering in 1976, some of Hollywood’s brightest stars stopped by “The Muppet Show” for unforgettable comedy and chaos including Steve Martin, Elton John, Liza Minnelli, Alice Cooper, Julie Andrews, Bernadette Peters, Diana Ross, Gladys Knight, Gene Kelly, and Mark Hamill.
So far the official social media accounts for the US, UK, Netherlands, France and Spain have all confirmed the show is coming, so hopefully this will be available for everyone.
