The MUPPETS!

Post by Ben » April 3rd, 2015, 1:14 pm

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG...!!!

ABC shooting new Muppet Show pilot next weekend!

Will probably go straight to series!

Bill Prady (Big Bang Theory, also of the original Jim Henson Hour and, most importantly, The Muppets' Tribute To Jim Henson) to write and produce!

Original (current) cast members on board!

Full story/more details here:

Hopefully this also means seasons four and five of the original run plus Muppets Tonight on DVD too!

Muppetational! :) :) :) :) :)

Wow, that sounds very promising! Exciting indeed, especially if it's successful and brings more classic Muppets to DVD (I'd love to have that tribute show on disc).

Hey Meg! Good to see you. :)

I think this is very cool...haven't seen Most Wanted yet but looking foreword to when I finally do. The classic Muppet Show was great and it's time the Muppets are on TV again! :)
