Last week saw The Muppets treating fans to the 10-minute pilot pitch that won them a new ABC series this fall, placing Kermit and the gang in a more adult context as a behind-the-scenes mockumentary. ABC appears to be running with that ball, promising “full-frontal nudity” and more by its first posters for the fall premiere.

The Muppets are indeed returning to TV, as ABC has formally announced a full series order for their upcoming season. Last we heard, the new Muppets series from Big Bang Theory creator Bill Prady was going to be more adult-oriented, presented “mockumentary” style, which seemed a bit odd since the beloved Jim Henson creations always sought to appeal to audiences of all ages anyway. But apparently this approach has paid off, as ABC is so thrilled with what they’ve seen from the new Muppets show already that they’re banking on the series to become a big hit. Also: Synergy.

According to a new report, ABC is looking to reinvent The Muppets as a 30 Rock-style mockumentary exploring the characters’ “more adult” lives.

It was only a matter of time, really, but that doesn’t make this new Whiplash mashup video any less awesome. Some clever human beings have edited together footage from Whiplash with footage of Animal from The Muppets playing drums, obviously, and the results are super funny and super cute and absolutely wonderful.

Before he was a CGI creation, Jedi master Yoda was a puppet. Before green screens became the norm, the Dagobah set for ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ was built elevated off the ground to accommodate Yoda’s puppeteers. And before he brought Yoda to life, puppeteer and voice actor Frank Oz was best known as the man behind Miss Piggy. In a weird way, that makes the most wizened character in the ‘Star Wars’ universe a distant relative of the extended Muppet family.
