Muppet Offspring

If they were good once ... good twice ... they'll be good again.

... Disney Junior has announced that the one and only Muppet Babies will be getting the reboot treatment on the young children’s cable channel. While the original 1980’s CBS Saturday morning standard featured conventionally drawn animation, the upcoming reboot will instead manifest as a CGI-based series (as seen in the picture above,) structuring each episode into two 11-minute stories. Per the Disney Junior branding, the new Muppet Babies will be aimed at children ages 4-7. ...

The 20th century Muppet Babies aired original episodes from 1984 to 1991. Also, too, there were four years worth of Muppet Babies in comic book form. The 1980s show was produced by The Jim Henson Company and Marvel Productions, back before both were gobbled up by the Walt Disney Company, and was a hand-drawn cartoon.

This iteration will premiere in 2018, in glorious CGI. Disney now owns all the rights, and will reap all the profits.
