Disney announced yesterday that they will be rebooting the popular 80’s cartoon Muppet Babies. Here is what we know so far:
The Muppet Babies remake will air on the Disney Junior channel and is scheduled to debut in early 2018. It will be targeted to kids ages 4-7 and will feature two 11-minute segments much like many of the other animated series on Disney Junior. Like the original, the remake will be presented in mixed animation.
Here is a quick synopsis of the Muppet Babies remake according to the Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media press release:
Each episode will feature two 11-minute stories that follow the Muppet Babies on various adventures – from building a time machine to flying through outer space – as they let their imaginations take them to the farthest corners of the universe. The stories are designed to highlight creative and critical thinking skills by harnessing the power and potential of imaginative play.
As always, I will be updating this post regularly as more info becomes available about this new series.
