This was the series’ most brain-breaking and possibly internet-breaking unmasking yet, as well as the cutest.

The premise of the show was that Kermit the Frog split from longtime love interest Miss Piggy, and the pair was forced to continue to work together on the fictional late-night talk show “Up Late With Miss Piggy.”Bill Prady and Bob Kushell co-created the series, which was produced by ABC Studios and The Muppets Studio.

Watch Oscar- and Grammy-winning composer Paul Williams tell how every song in the film was written — including the one surprising track intended for Frank Sinatra.
"What’s really strong about the Muppets is the people underneath the characters. That’s what it’s all about," he says in rare interview.
Whitmire was fired last fall after voicing Kermit for 27 years but has stayed quiet about the firing until a recent post on his website.
The best part about the bit was that Colbert used real audio to highlight how decidedly un-Muppet-y his choices for Kermit the Frog were.
Lochte recalled, “Last night, two people protested against me and went out on the dance floor.” So he danced to the theme of the show with “the green dude.”
On Tuesday’s The Muppets, Miss Piggy broke her leg in a “heroic” dance number and was loopy from her morphine drip. On her way into surgery she told Kermit that she loved him. As he lamented his situation, he found inspiration in Jack White, who encouraged Kermit to show Piggy know how he felt.
Kermit’s adorable little nephew Robin visited the office on Tuesday’s The Muppets. Robin’s parents had recently divorced, and was looking forward to spending time with his Uncle Kermit and Aunt Miss Piggy, not knowing that the two had also broken up. “The only thing that got me through last year, was knowing that you two are still together,” Robin told his uncle. Kermit got the rest of the Muppets in on the act as well.
Kermit the Frog’s current TV home, The Muppets, is returning to the air after a hiatus. Previously, the show had been criticized for attempting to be too edgy and abandoning its roots. Now, though, the show has been rebooted midseason and is attempting to win back Muppets fans they had previously alienated. With that comes more appearance for everybody’s favorite felt friends, including Kermit.
After a rough day on set, Kermit set off to a yoga retreat on this week’s The Muppets. While considering a blueberry for lunch (because it’s a yoga retreat), he runs into Jason Bateman; and because everyone in Hollywood knows each other, they get to talking about the biz. Things heighten to the point where Kermie feels forced to break some retreat rules, which gets him kicked out. But ultimately he finds his inner peace right in his own backyard.
By Lesley Goldberg ABC is showing faith in The Muppets. The network has picked up the freshman reboot for a full season — for a total of 16 episodes. The additional three-episode pickup is six shy of the standard back-nine order, with insiders stressing the shortfall is to accommodate the network’s midseason fare including family comedy The Real O'Neals and its all-black Uncle Buck re-do. The Muppets, which hails from Big Bang Theory co-creator Bill Prady and Bob Kushell (3rd Rock From the Sun) ranks as Tuesday’s highest-rated new series among adults 18-49.
The Muppets went on a work outing Tuesday night, got super drunk, and did some spectacular karaoke. The Swedish Chef threw down with “Rapper’s Delight,” Bunsen and Beaker did an unforgettable “I Got You Babe,” and Scooter rocked out so hard to “Maniac” (sadly, off camera) that he crushed his glasses. They all showed up late to work the next day, which infuriated boss Kermit. In our humble opinion, though, it was 100 percent worth it.
Now that The Muppets star Miss Piggy is single (and “partying it up, big time!”), she’s looking for a new man to parade around on her arm… er, hoof. And of course, only an A-lister will do. In tonight’s episode, Kermit and his staff scrambled to come up with a suitable date to escort Piggy to the People’s Choice Awards — and the list of celebrity names they came up with was a hilarious nod to Piggy’s very exclusive taste in men.

Warning: Storyline and character spoilers ahead for the series premiere of The Muppets. After mountains of advance hype (and a very public break-up), Kermit, Miss Piggy, and the whole Muppet gang are finally back on TV with ABC’s new fall comedy The Muppets. Critics have been bitterly divided on the show so far, but we really enjoyed tonight’s premiere: It had all the charm and heart of previous Muppet incarnations, and established a rock-solid template for future episodes to follow.

We’re big Muppet fans here at Yahoo TV, but we weren’t exactly sure what to think of ABC’s new fall sitcom, The Muppets. So we went straight to the source — Kermit the Frog himself — to find out what’s in store. In the video above, our old pal Kermit tells us the new show follows Kermit and the gang around, mockumentary-style, as they live their everyday lives. But he assures longtime fans that it’s still all G-rated: “There will be nothing on this show their kids can’t watch.”
After their very public break-up, it’s good to know Kermit and Miss Piggy can still be civil and enjoy a nice lunch together… as long as the paparazzi are there to document it, of course. In this special Emmys promo, the stars of ABC’s new fall comedy The Muppets sit down for a L.A. power lunch ahead of Sunday’s big night. Kermit wants to make sure this lunch is strictly professional; Piggy assures him it is… even as she rudely refers to Kermit’s new girlfriend as “Dennis.” (It’s Denise, actually.)
Kermit the Frog hopped by The View where he addressed the news that scientist Brian Kubicki, of the Costa Rican Amphibian Research Center, discovered a new species of frog that many believe bears a resemblance to him. “The truth is they are relatives of mine. I have known about them for years,” mentioned Kermit. He went on to assure his long lost relatives that they aren’t infringing on his copyrighted look but they may have to make amends with The Walt Disney Company by saying, “They may all have to wear mouse ears during the summer.”
