The Muppet Show is now available on Disney +

Here’s a fun fact, I once electrocuted myself while watching The Muppet Show. I was a mere five or six, spending the evening at my long since departed Grandma’s house. There, whilst playing with my Star Wars figures and watching my favourite Muppets on the small TV in the corner of the room, I decided to stick my finger in a socket. Thankfully, the shock wasn’t all that bad, and I watched the rest of The Muppets on my grandma’s lap with a giant slice of chocolate cake. But, I digress. For me, The Muppet Show was one of the highlights of the TV week. Each episode transporting me to the wondrous world of Jim Henson’s misfit gang. The opening credits, enough to make the whole world outside evaporate.

Henson’s Muppet Show was pure escapism, joy and innocence; a family show that appealed to every age. It’s humour intelligent, and its colourful, vibrant parade of characters, unique—The Muppet theatre timeless in construct; the stuff of childhood dreams. Therefore, when Disney finally announced the shows five-season run would eventually appear on Disney +, you can imagine my excitement. After all, The Muppet Show is not just TV history; it is joy, creativity, wonder and variety wrapped in a bow. The enduring beauty of Henson’s work, still relevant forty-one years later. So this week, why not dive into Henson’s glorious world, because, whether you are new to The Muppet Show or an adult who grew up with his creations as close friends; The Muppet Show has something for everyone, no matter their age. So start the music, light the lights and get ready to meet The Muppets again tonight.
