These Muppet Show Posters Parody Disney+ Shows

To celebrate The Muppet Show’s long-awaited arrival, Disney+ has posted a series of posters featuring the Muppets in a parody of the streaming service’s original shows.

“It wasn’t enough to get The Muppet Show on Disney Plus, The Muppets also had to take over five of our Originals,” Disney+ wrote on Twitter. 

The posters include Baby Kermit in “The Frogdalorian” instead of The Mandalorian, and Gonzo and his chicken Camilla in “CamillaGonzo” instead of WandaVision. Rounding out the posters are The World According to Chef Guldbluom with the Swedish Chef and High School Mayhem. Each poster features the tongue-in-cheek tagline, “Original Series Never Streaming.”

All five seasons of The Muppet Show are currently available to stream on Disney+.

The Muppet Show Streams February 19 On Disney+

The long wait for Muppet fans is almost over! “The Muppet Show,” Jim Henson’s iconic variety series that started it all, will begin streaming Friday, February 19 exclusively on Disney+. 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. 

“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.

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.
