The classic Muppet TV series, The Muppet Show, is set to join the Disney+ library starting next month. Walt Disney Studios announced this week that all five seasons for the classic series will be streaming on Disney+ starting February 19.

In addition to the first three seasons, fans will finally be able to enjoy Seasons 4 and 5, which have never been previously released on home entertainment. The classic series first debuted in 1976 and starred Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, the Swedish Chef, and more in a twist on the classic variety show, featuring original songs, sketch comedy, and guest stars.

Kermit the Frog stated on an official press release, “It’s going to be great to welcome back longtime fans, and to give a new generation of fans a chance to see how we got our start, how Miss Piggy became a star and so much more. Today, I’m proud to say: ‘It’s time to play the music, light the lights and meet the Muppets on Disney Plus tonight!’ And as for Statler and Waldorf, the two old guys in the balcony, I can only add: ‘Sorry, guys, but….here we go again.”

The series joins the latest Muppets TV show, Muppets Now, on Disney+, along with other favorites, such as Muppet Treasure Island, 2011’s The Muppets, Muppets Most Wanted, The Muppet Christmas Carol, The Muppet Movie, and The Great Muppet Caper.
