Muppet Babies Reboot Coming To Disney Junior In 2018

If you were a kid of the early 1990’s, then Jim Henson’s Muppet Babies was one of those shows that was always on your television. The show was incredible. Not only did it feature pre-school versions of the Muppets, but the adventures and morals the show taught was something you couldn’t get anywhere else. Muppet Babies lasted for eight seasons and went off the air in 1990, but now they’re coming back. Disney Junior is set to revive the series as a CG-Animated series set to air in 2018.

With the report of the show’s revival is a photo from the new series.

Muppet Babies was extremely creative show. The entire series took place in one location: their nursery, but that didn’t stop their imaginations from taking them to places in space, in other countries, and in locations that were definitely not the nursery. Of course who could forget Nanny. You could only see Nanny from her waist down to her feet. And that’s probably because it was the same perspective the Muppet Babies had of her. She was a wonderful example of an adult. If there was something the babies needed help understanding or resolving, Nanny found a way to do it in the best way possible.

The timing of this revival couldn’t have come at a better time as most of the children who watched the show have now grown up to have kids of their own. Here’s a statement from Disney Junior Worldwide executive VP of original programming and general manager Nancy Kanter regarding the revival of the 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.”

Debbie McClellan, The Muppets Studio VP added that, “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. 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 debut on Disney Junior in 2018.
