The new Muppet!!!

Muppets may return for reality TV parody
Wednesday Oct 26 13:23 AEST


AP - The Muppets could be coming back to primetime television with a new mission: parodying reality shows.

US network ABC has ordered a script and five episode outlines for America's Next Muppet, in which viewers may join in choosing the newest member of the puppet family that includes Kermit and Miss Piggy, a network spokeswoman said.

The premise has the ring of such shows as American Idol or America's Next Top Model, in which the audience picks potential new stars.

ABC is part of the Walt Disney Co, which purchased the Muppets franchise from the Jim Henson Co in 2004 and the right to use the characters in its theme parks, movies, TV shows and retail products. The ABC-TV movie The Muppets' Wizard of Oz aired earlier this year.

The late Jim Henson's Muppets got their first regular, widespread exposure on PBS' Sesame Street starting in 1969.

The syndicated The Muppet Show aired from 1976-81 and was seen in more than 100 countries. The characters also briefly starred in Muppets Tonight, which aired for four months in 1996 as part of ABC's primetime lineup.

Henson's puppets moved to the big screen in 1979 with The Muppet Movie, followed by movies including The Great Muppet Caper and The Muppets Take Manhattan.

I love the muppets, although I felt that the later show with the muppet with the dreadlocks in charge wasn't a patch on the original.

I used to like Gonzo as a kid. Nowadays though, "gonzo" stands for something else! :o
