Beginning this fall, you’ll be able to find the Muppets in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, where they’ll take part in an all-new live show, “The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History.”
Sam Eagle, the fiercely patriotic American eagle who is forever trying to set a high moral standard for the Muppets, will join Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, The Great Gonzo and James Jefferson, town crier of Liberty Square, as they gather outside The Hall of Presidents to present historical tales in hysterical fashion as only they can. From the midnight ride of Paul Revere to the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the Muppets appear throughout the day to share with Guests, their own unique take on the founding fathers and the birth of the United States of America.
Featuring an original song and plenty of wacky Muppets humor, “The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History” will make its debut in October 2016.
After initially wondering whether having the Muppets introduced into the normally serene atmosphere of Liberty Square was a good idea, I decided that it is actually a great idea! I think a new and original show could introduce a lively element into the atmosphere. I’m thinking something akin to the way Merlin appearing at the Sword in the Stone in Fantasyland used to liven up the atmosphere there a few times each day. (You do remember when that used to happen, don’t you?) Provided that the script and/or music is solid and well done (i.e., not a flimsy fluff piece), I believe there is great potential with this move. I’m curious as to exactly how they’re going to pull this off. Muppets in the upper windows, perhaps?
