Fozzie’s Bear-ly Funny Fridays

As part of the lead up to the return of The Muppets to the TV landscape, the show has begun putting out digital shorts. They are designed to remind us of some of the regular features that used to be part of the old The Muppet Show and are presumably coming back.

First they named the comeback movie for 2011 The Muppets. Now they’re naming the TV show The Muppets. Look, I’m not saying they should call the show something stupid (like The Neighbors.)

But enough nitpicking. Let’s check out the surprisingly adult lives the Muppet lead in the first trailer for the new TV show The Muppets.
