Every Friday until August 1st, Disney Junior premiered Muppet Babies Play Date, a series of shorts which showcase the Muppet characters from the CGI series reimagined as actual real life Muppet puppets. The series is unique in that some of the core Muppet performers returned to perform their characters, with dubbing done by the cartoon series’ cast.
We’ve missed the past six week’s worth of videos, so please enjoy the remaining six episodes, and come back on Friday 9th August for our interview with Muppet Babies’ Matt Danner and Tom Warburton, which includes a lengthy explaination on the creation of these shorts.
