HEH HEH HEH.
Once again, they’re not available on youtube, but Disney has released the final two shorts that could possibly herald a return of The Muppet Show.
You can watch them here. Synopsis below.
So there’s good news and there’s not so good news.
The good news is the next installment of Disney’s attempt to revive the Muppet Show came out this weekend.
The bad news is they aren’t releasing it to youtube like they did the first two episodes. The idea is to force everyone to sign up for a free account at their Disney Movies Anywhere website. SO you can watch them, they’re there, they’re free. You just have to make yet another account with yet another streaming service in order to do so.
It’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights. It’s time….for Disney to take matters into their own hands, and revive The Muppet Show…. online.
Here’s the thing. I’ve been saying, ever since the successful reboot of the The Muppets for a new generation that the next step was bringing the original variety style Muppet Show back to TV. After all, who would want to see today’s stars appear with the Muppets once a week? But it on the Disney own ABC sandwiched between Once Upon a Time and Agents of SHIELD and all the other TV shows showcasing Disney properties. It would make a great cultural snapshot of our times, and give the aging SNL franchise a runfor its money.
The push for the DVD release of Muppets Most Wanted probably won’t be as awesome as the push for the movie release was. But we still get a Tina Fey blooper reel.
