Muppet Babies Is Returning to TV to Make Your Dreams Come True

The '80s animated series is getting rebooted for Disney Junior

The reboot train rolls ever onward, so hop onboard for your next nostalgia trip.

Muppet Babies, the '80s cartoon that imagined Kermit the Frog and friends as toddlers, will return for new computer-animated adventures in 2018 on Disney Junior.

The new series will follow beloved Muppets like Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and Gonzo as they let their imaginations take them all over the universe. Each episode will consist of two 11-minute shorts and be aimed at children ages 4 to 7.

The Muppets' Twitter account released a first-look photo at the new Muppet Babies Wednesday:

"Bringing Muppet Babies to Disney Junior is a wonderful opportunity to reach a new generation of viewers and to creatively build on the innovative original series," Debbie McClellan, vice president of The Muppets Studio, said in a statement. "We hope to engage and delight the nostalgic fans while also entertaining new kids, parents and diverse audiences through heart and humor as only the Muppets can deliver."

The original series ran from 1984 to 1991 on CBS.

This is Disney's second Muppets series since buying the Jim Henson-created franchise in 2004. The Muppets, a reboot of the variety show format used by The Muppet Show, ran for one season on ABC before being canceled earlier this year.
