Stagehands, theatre-goers, and patrons of the arts unite, as TDK Mediactive, Inc. announces the Game Boy Advance handheld system debut of the Muppets and their zany escapades in "The Muppets: On With The Show."

"We're very happy to deliver the Muppets, one of the all-time great family treasures, to the audiences of the Game Boy Advance and much anticipated Game Boy Advance SP," stated Michael Devine, TDK Mediactive executive vice president, sales and marketing. "Not only is 'The Muppets: On With The Show' one of the most hilarious and refreshing games that we've ever published, but it's been placed at the family-friendly price of $19.99 MSRP, making it a perfect gift for any occasion."

"Muppet fans are sure to delight in the Muppetational backstage mayhem featured on TDK Mediactive's 'The Muppets: On With The Show,'" said Michael R. Polis, senior vice president of marketing, The Jim Henson Company. "We are excited to bring Muppet titles to the Game Boy Advance and Game Boy Advance SP formats, expanding the opportunities for Muppet game-play."

About "The Muppets: On With The Show"

Developed by Vicarious Visions, this laugh-out-loud, handheld title features eight mini-games, two of which are unlockable, and is sure to entertain kids of all ages:

  1. Kermit the Frog tries to entertain with his banjo from a boat, while simultaneously avoiding Muppets swimming through the (cardboard) waves. Miss Piggy keeps horning in on the act.
  2. The Swedish Chef's cooking show turns into a pitched battle with the rats who keep stealing his weird food items.
  3. Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker frantically work to avoid the typical disaster involving strange equipment and bizarre ingredients.
  4. The Great Gonzo wows the audience with his daredevil motorcycle act. He drives through the obstacles. Ouch!
  5. Miss Piggy rescues Kermit the Frog from the giant Jurassic Pork that emerges from Bunsen and Beaker's new time machine.
  6. Animal's musician friends, the Electric Mayhem Band, all want to get in on his act and jam together -- with mixed results!

About the Muppets

For 48 years, Jim Henson's Muppets have continued to bring joy to all generations. Notorious for their unique style of entertainment, the Muppets are international superstars. Last year Kermit the Frog received a star on the world-famous Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Muppets celebrated the 25th anniversary of "The Muppet Show," the Emmy Award-winning television series that aired in over 120 countries. The Muppets are pop culture icons with over 5,000 licensed products in the marketplace and promotional deals with MasterCard, Macy's, McDonald's, NASCAR, General Mills and Virgin Atlantic, among others. In the past year alone, the characters have appeared on "Good Morning America," "Today," "Hannity & Colmes," "Live with Regis and Kelly," "The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn," "Access Hollywood" and "The Queen's Golden Jubilee Party at the Palace." The Jim Henson Company recently produced "It's A Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie," which aired primetime on NBC and was seen by over 11 million viewers. In addition, a partnership deal has been signed with Team Todd ("Austin Powers," "Memento") to develop a new primetime Muppet series.
