Muppet Babies Reboot

Muppet Babies Reboot Coming to Disney Junior in 2018 — See First Photo

From 1984 to 1991, the Muppet Babies made their dreams come true. And in early 2018, they’ll do the same for you.

Disney Junior has begun production on a new CG-animated series featuring baby versions of Kermit, Miss Piggy and more of their felt-skinned friends, TVLine has learned.

Targeted at viewers between the ages of 4 and 7, each episode of the new Muppet Babies will feature two 11-minute stories in which the characters use their imagination to “take them to the farthest corners of the universe.” (Sometimes literally, as the Muppets have already proven themselves capable of interstellar travel.)

Rumblings of the Muppet Babies “rebirth” first surfaced at ToughPigs.com. If you need a refresher on the original series, check out the opening credits below (and good luck trying to get that theme song out of your head):

“We are proud, and a little bit giddy, to begin production on our new version of the much-loved Muppet Babies,” says Nancy Kanter, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and General Manager, Disney Junior Worldwide. “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.”

  1. Um. WHAT DID YOU DO TO MY MUPPET BABIES?

    OH MY GOOOOOD!!!

  3. KrisSimsters says:

    That’s going to scar some kids NGL…at least the original was animated.

  4. Haz says:

    I cannot stand this type of animation. It ruined the Garfield show and Mickey. It seems like it’s trying to be Pixar/3D type animation but falls short. I pray if they reboot any Nicktoons such as Rugrats I hope they do not use this type of animation.

  5. Writerpatrick says:

    Why use CG? Wouldn’t it just be easier to use puppets? At least it would fit with the Muppets style. Even animated they weren’t really Muppets.

  6. Eric says:

    Okay, I get why people think Fozzie and Piggy look weird, but c’mon. That version of Baby Kermy is the cutest thing.

  7. Jack says:

    When your room looks kind of weird and you wish that you weren’t there…

  8. Steven says:

    I hope it doesn’t flop like the ABC Muppet show.

  9. Steven says:

    Is Dave Coulier involved in it?

  10. Patrick says:

    I just need to know…will it feature Skeeter?

  11. Telly says:

    Ok, yay I guess… But where’s the original! Someone please get it together and bring me eps from the original show. If anybody can do it, Disney can, right?

      I agree! I wish they would bring the Original Muppet Babies show out on DVD! But I am looking forward to seeing the reboot at least once!
