It's time to play the music, it's time to light the lights, it's time to rank the Muppets before the Muppet show tonight!
That's right, they're back! Those beloved little felt monsters are finally returning to the small screen after nearly five years away (RIP, ABC's The Muppets) with the July 31 premiere of Muppets Now on Disney+. In the new series—billed as Muppet Studios' first unscripted show ever—Jim Henson's iconic creations promise to deliver the same sort of startling silliness and chaotic fun that made them famous to begin with.
Over the course of the six-episode first season, poor Scooter tries to meet his delivery deadlines and upload the new Muppet series made for streaming, which is due now. Of course, his co-workers have no interest in making that easy for him. Would you expect anything less?
In honor of their big return, we're getting a little bit crazy and ranking all (or most) of the Muppets that span the franchise's many movies & TV series. Do Kermit and Miss Piggy take the top spots or does someone else reign supreme?
Let's get to it, shall we? Read on to find out who is our No. 1 Muppet!
Muppets Now premieres Friday, July 31 on Disney+ with new episodes dropping every week.
