These celebrity re-unions seem endless. With Take That, The Spice Girls and The Police enjoying things more second time round, the comeback epidemic seems to have caught on in TV land. American TV Guide is reporting that a new version of The Muppet Show is in the works, with Kermit, Miss Piggy and co. being digitally enhanced for a new pilot episode.
A source has revealed that “the show will have the original puppets but they’ll be able to walk around. It’s going to be like the original variety show, not the cartoons that came out afterwards.” It’s still all very covert and rumours that Sir Paul McCartney will guest star have yet to be confirmed. “Everybody had to sign confidentiality agreements,” says the source. “Nobody is allowed to say anything yet because the show is still in development.” I hope it’s true and that we can look forward to more killer gags from Fozzy and disciplined drumming from Animal. Gotta love those Muppets!
