You may not know this, but Disney Jr is launching a reboot of The Muppet Babies. Yes, the reboot is CGI. Yes, it appears that it will not only feature less of the Muppets than the original, but it also appears to have a penguin in it that may just be there to add some gender parity (there have always been a lot more male Muppets than females).

As a long-time fan of the original, it’s a little challenging to look at this newly updated theme song and not worry that they’ve taken something great and destroyed it. That said, I’ve not seen an episode of it yet and I also know that I’m not exactly the target market that Disney Jr is aiming for. Take a look at the theme below, along with a “making of” video and a throwback to the original theme, and decide for yourself.
