The trailer for the new Muppet TV show, The Muppets, is so perfect. The jokes are so perfectly Muppet-y and the characters are exactly as you remember them. I’m so happy.

The jokes are a little more direct than The Muppet Show’s more out there material, but the core is intact. Right down to Miss Piggy’s diva tendencies. And, to my shame, the sight of Rowlf with the cone on his neck made me laugh out loud. And Statler and Waldorf with the focus group dials is pretty much dead on.
