I had to search for Disney Drive in order to pull it up on DMA on my iPhone. Currently, there are two episodes, with each one about seven minutes long. (As I was setting this article to post, Disney had released two additional episodes!)
They were hysterical!
Each one followed the classic Muppet Show format, with a guest star and some completely random (and awesome) Muppetness. It is well worth the time and effort to load the DMA app (iPhone or iPad) or just visit the website and watch it on your laptop. For the most part, the shorts were appropriate for any age; it's good to be a fan of the Muppets, regardless of your age!
It's really great to see the Disney Company finally making good use of the Muppets. I can't wait for more.

After being left in charge of the Muppets’ office by Kermit, Pepe the King Prawn takes on the responsibility of “mentoring” Walter on the business of Hollywood. Still considered the “new guy” with the Muppets, Walter is given low-level jobs working alongside his fellow Muppets at their office in the famed Walt Disney Studios in Burbank. He quickly learns there is a lot more to making movies than he thought! Developing projects may not always be so glamorous, but Walter is still excited to tackle new challenges, and discovers life on the Disney Lot is certainly a fun and funny adventure.
Check out these two clips to whet your appetite!
