Muppet Show Fans Rejoice!
If you grew up watching Kermit The Frog and Miss Piggy, you'll be in hog heaven (Sorry Miss Piggy!) with the return of the Jim Henson puppets. Disney+ will be showing the first three seasons of the "The Muppet Show" starting February 19. Along with the the first three seasons, season four and five will be available, too. These two season have never been made released on home entertainment.
The first show on February 19 will feature special guest host Crystal Gayle. Other future guest hosts include Steve Martin, Elton John, Liza Minelli, Alice Cooper and more.
The original Muppets' series debuted in 1976. The lineup of Hollywood stars that showed up also included Julie Andrews, Bernadette Peters, Diana Ross, Gladys Knight, Gene Kelly, and Mark Hamill.
According to a quote from Kermit The Frog (Yes, frogs do have quotes from time to time):
"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”
For those of you that don't remember the first guest host, Crystal Gayle, she's a Grammy award-winning singer songwriter. Her career includes 20 No.1 country hits including such classics as "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue", "Talking In Your Sleep" and the Crystal Gayle/Eddie Rabbitt classic, "You and I".
If you're like me and you've thought about subscribing to Disney+, it's not only the Muppets Show that you will enjoy but also Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star, National Geographic, and more.
