MUPPET BABIES are going to be ruling the nursery once more. Inspired by the classic 1980s cartoon which brought together all the famous Muppets as toddlers in Miss Nanny’s nursery, the show will once again take us on the adventures of their wild and wacky imaginations.
Co-produced by Disney Junior, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media’s (DCPI) Content & Media group, and The Muppets Studio, the new show will be CG-animated. Each episode will feature two 11-minute stories. The iconic characters will be doing anything from building a time machine to flying through outer space. The series will be geared towards kids aged 4-7 and like other Disney Junior fare, will encourage development, highlighting creative and critical thinking.
Nancy Kanter, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and General Manager, Disney Junior Worldwide, said, “We are proud, and a little bit giddy, to begin production on our new version of the much-loved Muppet Babies. Parents will delight in seeing their favorite Muppets in the mixed animation style they remember from the original series, and kids will be introduced to this warm and zany world made just right for the Disney Junior audience.”
“Bringing Muppet Babies to Disney Junior is a wonderful opportunity to reach a new generation of viewers and to creatively build on the innovative original series,” said Debbie McClellan, Vice President, The Muppets Studio. “We hope to engage and delight the nostalgic fans while also entertaining new kids, parents and diverse audiences through heart and humor as only the Muppets can deliver.”
MUPPET BABIES will make your dreams come true once more starting in 2018. Yes, we just started 2017 so there’s a long way to go yet!
