The Muppets at Comic Con 2015

Kermit, Piggy, and Eric Jacobson at Comic Con 2015.

The Muppets are gearing up for their new TV show (in fact the first day of shooting was this past Friday, July 31), and a big part of that is telling everybody in the world about it! The did just that at San Diego Comic Con this July, at a panel talk featuring producers and performers, and the Muppets themselves.

What’s that you say? You couldn’t afford a plane ticket to Comic Con, hotel fees, and admission to SDCC? You didn’t see The Muppets panel talk in person? Fear not! That’s exactly what this week’s feature is: the audio from that very panel talk, featuring Kermit, Miss PiggyFozzie, Gonzo, Pepe, Rizzo, and Rowlf! If you close your eyes and listen, it’s just like being in a room with the Muppets with your eyes closed!
