A couple of months ago we exclaimed (wildly) that The Muppets, the new Muppet show that is airing on ABC this fall, was the most exciting Muppet-related series since The Jim Henson Hour. The new series is lively and inventive and totally hilarious. And now you can see why we were so jazzed, as ABC has just made the original presentation video (a 10 minute + reel that convinced executives to greenlight the series) available online. This was the same reel that made the audiences at the packed San Diego Comic Con panel go absolutely bonkers.
So watch the reel below and soak up its glorious insanity; this is the complete reel, uncut (the surprise celebrity cameos remain intact) and side-splittingly funny. If you weren’t excited about The Muppets already, watching this reel will make you insanely pumped for the new series. This is the very definition of appointment television.
