“The Muppets”: First Look At Network Return

*Kermit Flailing*  Did you realize the last time the Muppets had their own tv show it was in 1980?  No really, I had to look it up to make sure that was correct.  The last episode of The Muppet Show aired May 22nd, 1980.  Since then, we’ve had some adorable holiday specials, and probably the best film versions of Treasure Island and A Christmas Carol. (You forgot Muppets Tonight! ….Like everyone else. -Ed)

Needless to say, thanks to the success of the recent films Muppet Movie and Muppets Most Wanted, we get to see our favorite sentient motion puppets return to television.  These 10 minutes of fantastic felty comedy are what convinced the Disney-partnered ABC Network to take a chance on Kermit and gang.  Check it out:

Needless to say, I cannot WAIT for the show to air on September 22nd, 2015 on ABC (check local listings for time).
