Jenny Slate Muppet Babies

Muppet Babies, Jim Henson’s 1980s animated TV series that imagined Kermit the Frog, Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy, and his other lovable Muppets as toddlers, is being rebooted on Disney Junior. Last month, we got a quick look at one of the show’s new characters, and today, we’ve learned that the show has hired someone to play one of its key roles: Jenny Slate (Obvious Child, Landline) will provide the voice of Miss Nanny, the Muppet caretaker who – as in the original series – will only be seen from the torso down.

The animator released a brief teaser for his proposal of a Disney animated series, as well as some art that he developed for the project. Alas, the series was never picked up by Disney, but it does make me wonder what could have been.
