    Disney Television Animation Studios released this picture on Twitter yesterday. I love the way Animal looks :)

    Guess they changed her to a penguin because there's another lamb character in Doc MacStuffins and thought kids would get confused, or maybe they just wanted an actual bird in there for the sake of diversity. Still doesn't seem like Rowlf and Scooter (and to a lesser extent Skeeter) will be in here, either, at least as part of the core cast. Maybe they'll be recurring like Bunsen & Beaker?

    I like how the new logo incorporates the colors of all the cast: pink for Piggy, red for Animal, yellow for Fozzie, green for Kermit, blue for Gonzo, and purple for the new character who may or may not be Bobbi.

    The character designs definitely look less uncanny than the last image.

    I don't have much to add (yet) other than to say that I'm really glad to see this show is happening and I have high hopes for it! (Fingers crossed for new merch. ;))

    The new penguin character is very cute, but what about Bobbi?
    Same here. He actually looks like himself and not the neon pink/magenta thing they portray him as in merchandise. (I know Baby Animal is a bit pinker than his adult counterpart, but still)

    I think she was re-designed from Bobbi. A bit disappointing seeing as how I was getting attached to her, but that's what happens when you follow a project from the beginning and they change things along the way during development.

    I literal literally just saw saying to myself yesterday, "Are they still making that new Muppet Babies show?" Glad to see its still in development, might give it a shot - I enjoyed the original as a kid, so..

    I also have no idea who Bobbi is, can someone fill me in here please? :) I don't recall the character in the original show.

    @Rugratskid Bobbi Baba was a concept for a new character that would be added in this new Muppet Babies reboot.

    I thought Gloria Estefan was already a baby?

    Vampires are still a thing? I thought the vampire craze had finally fizzled out years ago.

    OH, that! I didn't see the first time. Nah, the vampire thing has never gone away, at least the none sexual, non Twilight-like ones are still around.

    This looks adorable! I'm excited to see another Muppet production on TV!
    This show is about a little girl who runs a hotel and tries to blend in with humans. I saw a bit of it once while waiting for a movie on Disney Channel.
