Although The Blot isn’t sold on the format of ABC’s upcoming live action The Muppets television show, I’m beyond thrilled our favorite merry band of puppets are finally returning to primetime. It’s hard to believe it’s been decades since Kermit and company last had a show on network television. There was a big press junket for the show yesterday, with the biggest news being the show will feature a newly single Kermit and Miss Piggy. Kind of an odd choice, right!?!
The Blot is loving this set of The Muppets television posters ABC has released, but it begs the question what other Muppets will be featured on the show other than the core four. While obviously characters such as Animal, Scooter, Rowlf and the Swedish Chef will make appearances, but I’m dying to know what other Muppets will be showing up on a weekly basis. Like will Walter be making the big transition from movies to TV? All I know is Sweetums better be showing up!
The Muppets, co-created by Bill Prady and Bob Kushell, will air on Tuesday nights this fall on ABC.
