More Detail:

THE MUPPETS MAYHEM follows the Muppet’s band, The Electric Mayhem, on their hijinks through the music industry. When Nora, an ambitious assistant looking to make a break, sees her chance to produce an album with the band, she convinces them to join her by pretending to be the head of her studio. The Muppets take her on a wild ride of mischief making, while teaching her the value of family and reconciliation.

THE MUPPETS MAYHEM airs on Disney+ with the first season featuring ten 30-minute episodes.

Nora dreams big, wanting to be a big-time producer in the music industry, but as an assistant to music executive, Penny Waxman, she runs around filing papers rather than making records. That is, until she finds an old contract for an album the Muppet’s band, The Electric Mayhem, never produced. Paper in hand, she hunts down the Muppets, eager to start her career, falsely introducing herself to the band as a music producer.

Nora works hard dealing with these lazy mischief makers. The chaotic group hops from place to place, house crashing with Nora, throwing parties, taking road trips, and, of course, singing hit tunes wherever they go. While the Muppets aren’t the easiest to work with, Nora eventually learns to love them.

THE MUPPETS MAYHEM is a fun, entertaining watch for families and older children. Many celebrities make quest appearances, including Morgan Freeman, Paula Abdul, Chris Stapleton, and Ryan Seacrest. Strong moral values come through when the main character faces the consequences of lying to the band. The series also has strong themes of family and reconciliation. Some mild sexual innuendos appear in the series, but nothing explicit. Parents should exercise caution for younger children. Light pagan spirituality and irresponsible behaviors, like partying and vandalism, also appear in the series.

THE MUPPETS MAYHEM presents a strong moral, redemptive worldview through strong themes of reconciliation and honesty. Nora believes, “Boldfaced lies are the backbone of the entertainment industry,” and this is strongly condemned when Janice has a life-threatening allergic reaction to lying. Nora learns how to be real and genuine with her friends after facing the bad consequences of lying. Reconciliation appears as a constant theme when family relationships are damaged. Nora has an argument with her sister, and Janice works intently until the sisters reconcile. She says, “Sometimes the people you love let you down.” Finally, many other characters work through conflicts in a healthy, loving manner.
