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.”
Kermit admits he’s not a huge fan of having documentary cameras following him everywhere he goes: “Oftentimes, the cast members tend to forget that the cameras are there… I never forget.”
And how does he handle the chaos of working with all of his Muppet pals again? “I handle it by censoring myself,” he tells us. Oh, Kermit: always a model of self-restraint. But that’s the opposite of his famous co-star (and ex) Miss Piggy, he adds: “She has no filter. Just open her mouth, and it just comes falling out.”
The Muppets premieres Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
