Those who are Muppet fans, devotees or enthusiasts are in for a treat on Feb. 19 because all five seasons of “The Muppet Show” are exclusively coming to Disney+. 

While the streaming platform has a few Muppet specials already available to watch, this is the first time all five seasons of the beloved 1970s show will be in one spot for fans to obsess over.

The series was created by Jim Henson and aired from 1976 until 1981 on CBS, according to Variety. Disney acquired rights to the Muppets in 2004. 

“It’s going to be great to welcome back longtime fans, and to give a new generation of fans a chance to see how we got our start, how Miss Piggy became a star and so much more,” said Kermit in a statement. “And as for Statler and Waldorf… I can only add: ‘Sorry, guys, but… here we go again.'”

Viewers can expect to see Kermit and Miss Piggy, along with Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, the Swedish Chef, Sam the Eagle, Statler and Waldorf, Animal, Gonzo and more. 

Long-time fans of the show/Muppet crew have shared their excitement of this news as soon as it was announced on Tuesday. 


Within the 120-episodes, there will be a few familiar faces, including Steve Martin, Elton John, Julie Andrews, Diana Ross, Gene Kelly and more. 

2020's “Muppets Now,” a six-episode series, is already on Disney+ for fans to watch as they gear up for the big release.
