What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Muppet Moments is a short-form series that pairs kids with Muppet characters for curious conversations about everything from manners to food preferences. The unscripted dialogue is fresh, funny, and often heartwarming, and there are many sweet moments shared between the kids and Fozzie Bear, Beaker, Kermit the Frog, and many other famous Muppet faces. These shorts are fun for all ages, but they'll leave you wanting more from the Muppet characters, whose talents aren't fully realized in such brief clips.

Awesome use of muppets and Disney

I think that this is an awesome use of the muppets and Disney together, I hope they do more like this in the future!

What's the story?

In MUPPET MOMENTS, Muppets Kermit the Frog (voiced by Steve Whitmire), Miss Piggy (Eric Jacobson), the Great Gonzo (Dave Goelz), and their friends sit down with kids and converse about topics of the day, including fairy tales, saying sorry, and the tooth fairy. Each segment is short -- on average a minute or so -- and features a conversation between a preschool-age subject and one or two Muppet characters.

Is it any good?

This short-form series is unscripted entertainment at its finest. The dialogue between the kids and the Muppets is honest and self-guided, which results in delightfully comical insight into the child psyche and a lot of endearing moments as well. It's heartfelt entertainment that's fine for the whole family.

If a complaint could be uttered, it would have to be that Muppet Moments is a very effective teaser for long-form Muppet-style comedy. The fact that the kids are the stars of the show isn't a negative, and cuteness certainly abounds as they share their thoughts on topics galore, but it does leave you wanting more from the show's more colorful characters. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the Muppets. How different are their personalities? Kids: Which one is your favorite? If you created a Muppet character, what would it be? 

  • Parents and kids can expand on the topics raised in the show. Do you agree with the characters' opinions? What would you add if you could talk to them?

  • In what ways is diversity a benefit to society? How would things be different if we all looked the same and liked the same things?
