‘Muppets Now’ Is Coming to Disney+ on July 31 — Here Are the Best Muppet Toys and Gifts to Hold You Over Until the Premiere
by Bethany Braun-Silva
One of the best things about being a parent is being able to share the things you enjoyed as a child with your kids now. If you loved tuning in to watch Kermit, Fozzy Bear, Ms. Piggy and the rest of The Muppets each week on The Muppet Show, then you will be delighted to hear that Disney is bringing back an iteration of the show this summer.
Muppets Now will be launching on Disney+ on July 31, and we can’t wait. The first season will include six original episodes, and in true Muppet fashion, the series is hilariously self-aware. “In Muppets Now, Scooter rushes to make his delivery deadlines and upload the brand-new Muppet series for streaming,” states the official press release. “Overflowing with spontaneous lunacy, surprising guest stars and more frogs, pigs, bears (and whatevers) than legally allowed, the Muppets cut loose in ‘Muppets Now’ with the kind of startling silliness and heartfelt fun that first made them famous.”
