Disney did the impossible: destroyed the Muppets. By making the Muppets “edgy” left-wing partisans who attack Fox News, come out as pro-abortion, and hurl sex jokes, the once-universally beloved franchise has been doomed. First, the leftwing Muppets failed at the box office, and now Kermit and Company are on the verge of having their new television show cancelled.
The new series premiered less than a month ago. Initially, at least for the premiere, and no doubt riding on the goodwill of a beloved past, the ratings were good. After one look at the new show, the ratings took a steep nosedive. In week three, the ratings crashed again.
What was once funny, zany, inclusive, nonpartisan, brilliant, innocent, and irreverent while still being sincere, has been destroyed by Disney. Our toys came to life and they were awesome. Now they’re pro-abortion, Fox News haters living (on this new show) in the real world with real-life relationship problems.
This new Muppet show is a based on a mockumentary premise like “the Office,” only it is behind the scenes at Miss Piggy’s late-night talk show. Kermit and Miss Piggy are broken up and… It’s too depressing to go on.
Whoever these freaks are that Disney invented, they are not our lovable Muppets.
More proof the old saying is true: Liberals ruin everything.
