The Muppets are coming to Disney Junior and I think I am more excited about this than my kids! Beginning this Friday, April 3rd, Muppet Moments will debut on Disney Junior. This new short-form series will be sure to entertain little ones in true Muppet style.

I grew up in the age of The Muppet Show and knew the words to every song from The Muppet Movie. It thrills me that a new generation of kids will get to delight in the fun and wackiness that is the Muppets.
Muppet Moments will feature amusing conversations between Muppets and young kids about everyday topics including “apologies,” “favorite foods” and “manners.”
Starring Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and other beloved Muppets, the series will premiere on Disney Channel with four shorts ( 8:25 a.m., 8:55 a.m., 9:25 a.m., and 9:55 a.m. ET/PT), followed by a new short rolling out daily through Friday, May 8.
All of the shorts will also be available on WATCH Disney Junior the same day as their premiere.
You can catch a sneak peek of the Muppet Moments short titles “Let’s Eat” right here!
Did you know that the Muppets auditioned to be some of your favorite Disney Junior characters? Since we are huge Muppet fans, we have been given special access to the leaked audition tapes? Do you think Fozzie would have made a good Doc McStuffins?
I can’t wait to watch these shorts with my kids. Hopefully, it will turn them into huge Muppet fans!
