Trivia

In episode twelve, "A Tale of Two Piggies," Miss Piggy suffers a wardrobe malfunction, which, Sam the Eagle tells Kermit, prompts the "One Million Angry Parents Association" to protest Up Late with Miss Piggy. This is a reference to the real-life protest staged against this show by the group One Million Moms, which deemed the series "unsuitable for family viewing" months before it even started airing.

Another Classic from the Muppets
30 September 2015 | by atlasmbSee all my reviews

"The Muppets" is a new show, presented in the style of "30 Rock" or other behind-the-scenes mockumentaries. It features Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy and all the other Muppets creations we have come to love. But this show is aimed at an older audience.

As always, much of the humor comes from the timeless characterizations (forms and personalities). How could you not love an imperious pig or an everyman frog? Not to mention the rest of the puppet cast, from a bear to a beaker.

We have enjoyed these creatures for so long that it is easy to take them for granted. The puppeteering and voice artistry are first rate. And I love the various ways they create the illusion that the Muppets are independent beings operating under their own power.

The writing is standard Muppets fare--clever and topical. You can practically hear the rimshots after some lines.

As in other Muppets shows, they interact with guest artists (Laurence Fishburne, Lea Thompson, Josh Groban and Jay Leno were in one episode). You can tell they are having a blast. So did I.
