Light the Lights! 5 Reasons We’re Excited for The Muppet Show

By September 16, 2015 Lists No Comments

The Muppets have been pretty relevant in the news as of late, but it’s not for the fun-loving, comical antics they’re best-known for. In early August, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy announced their unfortunate break-up, proving that not even your favorite amphibians are immune from life’s harsh realities.

Luckily for Miss Piggy and her former beau, they’ll have plenty of support from their friends and fans. The Muppets returns to ABC on Tuesdays this fall in an Office-style “mockumentary” that documents their personal lives and relationships, both at work and in their homes.

Check out the top five reasons that Costume SuperCenter is excited for the inaugural season of The Muppets:

The Music

It might be the most recognizable theme song in television history. When you’re told to light the lights and raise the curtains, it’s easy to remember that previous installments of The Muppet Show prominently featured music. With beloved characters like Rowlf and Animal, fans are led to believe that this new series will provide some memorable musical moments.

Like so many hit shows before it, The Muppet Show will be shot in a documentary-style light, where the main characters are often isolated and left to express their emotions to a camera in a room separate from the other characters. What would Kermit say about Miss Piggy when she’s not around? You have to crack up at the thought!

The Celebrity Guests

From Luke Skywalker to Big Bird and from Elton John to Sylvester Stallone, one of the most endearing parts of past episodes of The Muppet Show was its ability to surprise its audience with cameos every week. With so many new stars and characters in the limelight since the last episode in 1981, it’s easy to get excited at the thought of who might soon be rubbing shoulders with the Muppets.

The Comedy

Fozzie Bear

This one might be self-explanatory, but any time Fozzy Bear and his gang take center stage, the audience is expecting to laugh. A lot. Like, uncontrollable laughter. Jim Henson’s Muppets have succeeded in this category more often than not, and there’s no reason to expect anything less than full episodes filled with belly laughs and happy tears week after week.

The Costumes!
