Check Out the New Muppet Babies Theme

Disney’s long-awaited CG reboot of Muppet Babies is finally making some real headway with the reveal of its new theme, performed by Hamilton’s Renée Elise Goldberry. The full intro was revealed by Entertainment Weekly, and aside from the addition of Summer the Penguin and her love of painting remains pretty intact from the original.

The animation, while being CG, is actually pretty amazing. Particularly the felt textures used on the Muppets themselves, which looks oddly real for clearly being animated. Muppet Babies is set to return to Disney Channel on March 23rd.
