Seventeen years ago Disney bought the ownership rights to the Muppets and Bear in the Big Blue House. Today, all five seasons of "The Muppet Show" are finally available to stream for the first time ever.

Having "The Muppet Show" on Disney+ is great news for Muppet fans because "The Muppet Show" is available to its biggest audience in decades. As of January 2, 2021, Disney+ has 94.9 million paid subscribers. If enough people watch "The Muppet Show", this could not only lead to new Muppet projects or a release of more classic content but also a potentially new Muppet Show series as well.

Whether you watch one episode for the first time or for the 50th time, be sure to post your thoughts on the episodes in the below discussions.

Muppet Show Disney+ Episode Discussions

Please note, one first season episode, Kaye Ballard, and two fifth season episodes, Brooke Shields and Chris Langham, are not currently on DIsney+. It appears the Kaye Ballard omission is an error as the first season shows 24 episodes according to their episode numbers on Disney+. Whereas Brooke Shields' episode is not currently on Disney+ due to music licensing issues, most likely for "We're Off to See the Wizard" from "The Wizard of Oz". Chris Langham's episode is not currently on Disney+ due to his legal issues which led to his incarceration in 2007.

As suspected this morning, the Kaye Ballard omission on Disney+ was an error and the first season Muppet Show episode is now available on the Disney streaming service.
