Much to the delight of Muppets fans, there was also the very first episode of Muppets Now.

Hi ho, fans of Kermit the Frog!

There’s plenty of new and original content on Disney’s streaming platform, Disney+. For the first time ever, though, a new show joined plenty of Muppets content already available on this subscription service. That includes recent releases like the film featuring returning fan-favorite cast members, Muppets Most Wanted.

The very first episode of Muppets Now debuted on July 31. It featured an “interview” with RuPaul’s Drag Race host RuPaul, lifestyle advice with Miss Piggy and Deadly, and even a cooking show with the Swedish chef.

Not only is Muppets Now the only Disney+ original Muppets television show, this is an unscripted series, meaning each character has a chance to showcase their special talents in a way that made viewers laugh.

Some subscribers shared their thoughts on this new setting for characters like Kermit the Frog, Gonzo, and Fozzie. So far, the response has been overwhelmingly positive, with the hashtag earning hundreds of posts on Twitter.

“I really enjoyed Muppets Now. The improvised format lets the performers shine, particularly Barretta and Goelz. Uncle Deadly is still killing it. Still getting used to Vogel’s Kermit voice, but loving the physicality he brings. 23 minutes? Is that normal or just the premiere,” one Twitter user said.
