Classic Muppets return to TV on Disney Channel special

The premiere of "Studio DC: Almost Live!" will air Sunday August 3 at 8 pm eastern, 7 pm central on the Disney Channel

The Muppets have teamed up with the Disney Channel stars for an all-new variety show special. "Studio DC: Almost Live!", originally slated for a July premiere, has since been rescheduled and is now set to make its big debut on Sunday, August 3, 2008 at 8:00 pm eastern, 7 pm central.

The half-hour variety show will feature special appearances by Miley Cyrus, Ashley Tisdale, Dylan & Cole Sprouse, Jonas Brothers, and the Muppets. The special will include singing and dancing, comedy sketches and the backstage antics of the original Disney Channel variety show.

Highlights of the program include Miley Cyrus performing her hit song "GNO" with the help of the Electric Mayhem; Kermit the Frog and Ashley Tisdale performing "Bop to the Top" (from High School Musical); Miss Piggy's failing attempts to join Nick, Joe and Kevin for a musical number (posing as a long-lost Jonas Sister); and Kermit and Gonzo join the cast of "The Suite Life" for a comedic skit; plus much more.

You won't want to miss this all-new musical extravaganza, as a second "Studio DC" special featuring the Muppets is already planned to air on Disney Channel sometime this fall.

The project was developed to order to introduce a new generation of fans to the Muppets – while keeping the classic feeling and tone that the Muppets are known for.

Muppets named and pictured in press materials and commercials include: Kermit, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear, The Snowths, The Electric Mayhem, Rowlf the Dog, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Beaker, Rizzo the Rat, The Swedish Chef and Pepe the King Prawn.

Updated July 30: Here are some of the promotional commercials currently airing on The Disney Channel to promote "Studio DC: Almost Live!"
