Gonzo On ‘The Muppets’ New Show: “We Don’t Have Deals Yet!” – Comic Con

Deadline

By far the most hysterical panel at Comic-Con, ABC’s The Muppets received an uproarious response from the crowd in Room 6A as Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie the Bear, Rowlf, Pepe and Rizzo Rat elbowed themselves while discussing their new fall show. It marks the first time the Muppets have attended Comic-Con. What does Kermit think of it so far? “I don’t think I’d make it across the tracks,” said the frog about the dual railroads in front of the San Diego Convention Center.

The while idea of brining The Muppets back to TV started with The Big Bang Theory EP Bill Prady, who cut his teeth writing for Jim Henson on both Muppet shorts and Fraggle Rock.

“If Jim (Henson) saw the kinds of shows that were on the air today, such as The Office, he would make fun of them,” said Prady about the docu-comedy style of The Muppets.
