The Toys Are Back In Town

ABC is rolling out an “adult” Muppets show and we’re scared and excited.

The Muppets are coming! Not that they ever really left (those puppets have had more specials than your local diner), but the Muppets are returning, this time as actors in a single-camera, interview-interspersed, “The Office”-style half-hour show. Yes, the Muppets are getting a sitcom. While there’s a school that says that ragtag bunch of animals should have died with their creator, Jim Henson, it seems that whoever’s in charge is at least aware of the scenario’s silliness, and milking that for humor. Honestly, as long as Miss Piggy returns (and it looks like she is), we’ll be watching.
