    'Cause this one appearance will be the nail in the coffin for them...

    We've made it a long way from Studio DC; this song is tons catchier than anything from those specials. Plus, if there's any fault in their appearance, blame the writers for not having any Muppet know-how and for having just an all-around inadequate show. Disney's not aiming for Honeymooner's-quality programming.

    I can't tell if you were being sarcastic in the first line, but I'm really worried about that.
    What I'm worried about is that people will see this, and this being one of the very few Muppet things they see, will have no interest in the Muppets in the future, which will be a big loss, since the next movie is well-underway.

    Although a Diva battle between the mom and Piggy would be nice to see. I hate to say it but the mom's character really is a more extreme, more obnoxious version of Piggy...

    Well, you're not exactly the demographic for the show (you seem to be a couple of years over it), so it may just be the effect all kids shows have: kids love it, you're old enough to find the holes in it that keep you from enjoying it the way they do.

    If there's anything I see wrong with this it's A. the Fozzie puppet and B. The lead girl, who I know is a good singer, seems to be more trained for pop singing than the Broadway-style song this is.

    And, I will say it again...

    This appearance is NOT meant to appeal to muppet fans. Muppet fans are way out of the target audience for the show. It is not going to feature muppet style writing, it will probably feature Good luck Charlie style writing that happens to feature the muppets.

    The sad thing is, no matter how awesome the next Muppet Movie is, they inevitably had to use that Fozzie Puppet. He needs a rebuild and quick! There's got to be something done to lighten that fur up a bit.

    Anyway, yeah. Agreed. This isn't for us, this is so the brand can keep playing to younger audiences. That said, I've seen enough of it via that clip. If it reaches an audience, Cheers. I just want to see some Muppet TV special or other accessible project before the film comes out. Something better than this.

    i mean the song is kind of catchy and i love good luck charlie and the muppets so it kinda works out

    The thing i dont get is why they had 3 Eric Jacobson characters instead of having Gonzo replace Animal.

    ...maybe only Steve, Eric and misc. performers were available for performing maybe?

    Also, did they make new chicken puppets? Their beaks are huge.

    Oh my gosh. You're right. They are huge!
    I prefer the other ones. I hope they used the most recent one for the movie.

    Wonder why they added in the Chicken's? It would have been cool if they used the entire Muppets team, like what happened with Muppet's in Space. Than again, Gonzo would do more damage than goodXD It would have been funny though.

    Is it just me, or does Kermit's performance look stiff and sloppy?

    I wanna say Steve's doing him left-handed for some reason. I noticed the auto-tuning at :58 a lot more.

    Does anyone know where to watch this in Canada?
    I don't watch any of these shows ever on a regular basis, I have no idea what Canadian channels even play these...

    Disney Channel. The channel number is different for each cable provider in each city, so you will need to look up what channel Disney channel is on your service provider's website

    There's no Disney Channel in Canada. There's the Family Channel, which plays a lot of DC stuff, but it's one of those channels you gotta pay extra for.
