“The Muppets” first episode “Pig Girls Don’t Cry” premiered on ABC. The new sitcom revealed a brand new Kermit, Fozzie and friends. Read on to know more details.
According to TV By the Numbers, the first episode showed that the play has been created in a pun-filled manner that would be appreciated by fans. With music and lights, the first episode stared with everything that can catch the fans’ attention.
In the opening shot of the show, viewers would have watched a brand new Kermit saying, “There are a lot of challenges being executive producer of a show starring your ex.” Then the scene shows him standing under the billboard for “Up Late with Miss Piggy.” The new Kermit is “more world-weary” when compared to the one you would have seen earlier.
What about the Miss Piggy? Well, in this new ABC’s “The Muppets,” Piggy would be a “distracted Hollywood power player,” and not like the previously shown “diva” one.
The first episode “Pig Girls Don’t Cry” focuses on a particular episode of Piggy’s show where Kermit would be interested to have Elizabeth Banks, the porcine hostess, as the guest. However, banks would refuse it. Poor Tom Bergeron would be always seen around Muppets as a replacement guest and gives some funniest jokes. We could also notice that the tone of the sets is appropriate for new millennial Muppets.
The core drama of the show, including the first episode primarily revolves around the romantic conflict between Kermit and Miss Piggy, reported DEN OF GEEK. Fozzie, the other Muppet, would be dating Becky, a look-alike of Riki Lindhome.
“The Muppets,” ABC’s new sitcom is the same as that of “The Muppet Show,” Jim Henson’s original classic, with a few modifications and adjustments in contemporary style, reported the source.
Will Kermit and Piggy reunite? Will Fozzie be successful in building the bear-human romance? “The Muppets” in this new format is really funny, enjoyable, and likeable.
