It’s time to play the music; it’s time to light the lights: Jim Henson‘s variety series starting his famous Muppets, The Muppet Show, will start streaming on Friday, Feb. 19, exclusively on Disney+. In addition to the first three seasons of the show, fans will also be able to watch seasons four and five, which have never previously been released on home entertainment. For a big of nostalgia, check out the show’s original theme song below!
The Muppet Show stars fan-favorite muppets: Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, the Swedish Chef, and more in a variety show for all ages that blends original songs, sketch comedy, and guest stars. It originally premiered in 1976, and over time welcomed some of Hollywood’s most famous faces as guest stars, including Steve Martin, Elton John, Liza Minelli, Alice Cooper, Julie Andrews, Bernadette Peters, Diana Ross, Gladys Knight, Gene Kelly, and Mark Hamill.
“It’s going to be great to welcome back longtime fans, and to give a new generation of fans a chance to see how we got our start, how Miss Piggy became a star and so much more,” said Kermit the Frog in a statement. “Today, I’m proud to say: ‘It’s time to play the music, light the lights and meet the Muppets on Disney+ tonight!’ And as for Statler and Waldorf, the two old guys in the balcony, I can only add: ‘Sorry, guys, but … here we go again.”
