It was just announced that ABC has picked up a new show featuring the Muppets! We’re their biggest fans, and, as such, are suitably thrilled. The show will be a look at the Muppets’ personal lives in the style of a mockumentary. The pilot was written by Bill Prady (co-creator of The Big Bang Theory), and Randhall Einhorn is co-showrunner (director of many episodes of The Office). Because a picture is worth a thousand words we’re going to express our excitement through GIFs (which are surely worth more than a thousand words because they’re moving pictures.)
We’re as excited about the new Muppet series as…
The rats when given extra coal.
Kermit doing a handstand on a moving bicycle.
Rowlf tickling the ivories.
The meeces finally getting cheeses.
The whole gang when Orson Wells gives them a movie deal.
Animal during a drum solo.
Camilla and the chickens during during a big production number.
Miss Piggy doing the shimmy.
