Back when Disney’s Hollywood Studios was still MGM Studios and there was no sorcerer hat blocking the view of the Chinese Theater, the Muppets broke into Walt Disney World. Yes, you read that right. Animal destroyed a turn style, a silly security guard couldn’t stop them, and Kermit and Robin watched their friends run inside MGM. This wasn’t Kermit’s original plan. He brought his pals to his home swamp to enjoy the Annual Frog Festival and Bug Fry. It’s a shock to me the gang basically stampeded to WDW when they heard it was on the other side of the swamp.
What am I talking about? The Muppets at Walt Disney World special that played on TV in the 1990s, of course. I’ve mentioned it before, as a huge Raven fan. You can only see it on YouTube now, or maybe your mom taped it and it’s on a treasured VHS somewhere. (Wouldn’t it be awesome if they replayed this if The Muppet Movie does well? Can’t believe the release is almost here!)
Anyone else think it’s odd Mickey is animated here and not the character we see in the parks? I think I would have liked that better.
I don’t know about you but I’m pretty open to any future collaborations between Mick and the rest of the Muppets. Even if he’s animated, or tie-dyed or whatever. And if that doesn’t happen, let’s hope someone in the Disney Company decides to check out this TV special for some future attraction brainstorms. The Muppets Take Over Indiana Jones? I’d wait in line for that.
9 more days until The Muppet Movie. Are you guys ready?!
