Dated is probably half the catalog from The Muppet Show.
I don't see why anyone has a problem with the Muppets doing a semi-current song when half the guests on TMS are virtually forgotten. And it's not like the other movies are truly timeless either. Well... maybe MCC and MTI, but that's because they're period pieces.
AS long as it's not something as terribly at the moment as the "Mice Girls" or mentioning Fear Factor, we have nothing to really complain about.
Plus... come on... Scooter has a musical number. That's something we haven't seen since the Muppet Show days.
Basically my thoughts were;
OMYSNOT this isn't real right? HOW CAN I HAVE MISSED THIS?!
ANIMAL STOP TALKING I'M TRYING TO BE EXCITED
The gold tuxes?
THE GOLD TUXES!
Miss piggy is there for three seconds and I sense an improvement
What is this with the desert?
Why is Kermit in Siberia?!
Gratuitous guest-spot clips
SEAMLESS CUT TO MY FAVORITE BOY BEING A TOTAL DORK AUGH THAT HORRIBLE SONG IT'S SO ADORABLE WALTER WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU THIS IS BEAUTY BEYOND COMPARE
So needless to say, I am a little excited, but my standards remain high.
