Tomorrow, August 14, the new cartoon Muppet Babies will make their Disney DVD debut called ‘Muppet Babies: Time To Play!‘ This DVD will feature four exciting episodes, two bonus episodes, 10 “Muppet Babies: Show & Tell” Shorts, and six music videos. The audience will get to join Kermit, Piggy, Animal, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear, and Summer in adventures that span across the globe. Like the song says, “When your world looks kind of weird and you wish you weren’t there. Close your eyes and make believe that you can be anywhere.”
The all-new DVD ‘Muppet Babies: Time To Play!‘ features a selection of the most playful episodes from season 1 of the 2018 Muppet Babies. It allows the audience’s imaginations to take flight traveling around the world and even through time with the Muppet Babies. Thanks to Disney Junior, the adventures contain fun story lines and important life lessons.
The story lines in the Muppet Babies are very cute featuring the imagination of children. They are the Muppet Babies after all. But even with children like stores, the writers have included cute Easter eggs for the adults watching the show as well. For example, in Sir Kermit the Brave, the Muppets go into a dark cave to find Miss Nanny. However, they come across some booby-traps. In an epic geeky move one of the booby-traps feature a large rolling boulder straight out of Indian Jones Raiders of the Lost Ark. Yup, The Muppet Babies DVD features an episode of Geeky proportions with a fun Easter egg.

One thing I love about The Muppet Babies is how it encourages kids to use their imagination and see the world through wonderful adventures while learning important morals and life lessons. For example, in “Animal Flies Airplane”, the Muppet Babies wish to go to Paris. Using their imagination they take a flight across the Ocean.
But when Kermit can no longer fly, each Muppet takes a turn at the wheel because they all think that Animal is to wild and is unable to fly. It isn’t until Animal sneaks to the cockpit and levels out the plane that the Muppet Babies realize how wrong it was to tell Animal he can’t do something simply by the way he acts. Lesson Learned.
‘Muppet Babies: Time To Play!’is a great collection of fun episodes featuring our favorite Muppet Babies with geeky Easter eggs for the adults and wonderful life lessons for the kids. It is truly a must have for fun loving families.
