The Muppets Great Moments in American History
[dropcap]G[/dropcap]reat news for all you Muppets fans out there! Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and The Great Gonzo arrive at Magic Kingdom Park on October 2 for the opening of their all-new, live show “The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History.” Hosted by James “J.J.” Jefferson, town crier of Liberty Square, and Sam Eagle, the fiercely patriotic American eagle who is forever trying to set a high moral standard for the Muppets, this wacky new show is set to take place several times daily, just outside The Hall of Presidents.

Throughout the day, J.J. and the Muppets share their own unique take on the founding fathers as they recount the tale of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, complete with an original song and plenty of humor. At other times, you may catch the Muppets’ version of the midnight ride of Paul Revere, presented in hysterical fashion as only they can.

The Muppets, created by Jim Henson, have a long association with Disney. “MuppetVision 3D” debuted at Hollywood Studios — then known as Disney-MGM Studios — in 1991. That attraction also had a 13-year run at Disney California Adventure theme park.

Walt Disney Co. bought the rights to the Muppets, created by Jim Henson, in 2004. Disney produced two Muppet movies, “The Muppets” in 2011 and “Muppets Most Wanted” in 2014. A TV show named simply The Muppets” aired for one season on Disney-owned ABC beginning in September 2015.
