How exciting! Not sure what to expect from an unscripted Muppet series, but it's great for Disney to be using them again.

Also, I brightened up the image, and it looks like all the blacked-out text is just gibberish.

Fantastic news. I can't wait to see what this is like. Looks like i'll have to get Disney Plus to support the frog & his friends :smile:

I can buy unscripted, but "short form"? What does that? Like the YouTube stuff? And what format is "unscripted"? Will it be like whenever people chat with the Muppet characters off the cuff, like they used to do frequently on SS?

If you look closely, you can see some of the words that are scratched out are just non-sensical words: "cursus," "commodo," "Fernum," "velit."

Either way, I won't be seeing this.

They might be better off doing something more low key like this.
