Have we got the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational news for you. The Muppet Show is really, truly coming exclusively to Disney+ on February 19. Per an announcement early this morning, all five seasons of Jim Henson’s beloved variety show, starring Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, and more, will be streaming to delight fans, young, old, and Muppet alike with its catchy tunes, a theme song you can’t get out of your head, hilarious sketch comedy, and — how could we forget? — its illustrious run of guest stars, including Julie Andrews, Elton John, Liza Minnelli, Alice Cooper, Bernadette Peters, Gene Kelly, and Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill. Disney+ says that it will also be releasing seasons four and five, which have never before been made available on home entertainment.

“It’s going to be great to welcome back longtime fans and to give a new generation of fans a chance to see how we got our start, how Miss Piggy became a star, and so much more,” said Kermit the Frog said in a statement. “And as for Statler and Waldorf, the two old guys in the balcony, I can only add, ‘Sorry, guys, but … here we go again.”
