Disney Reveals a New Muppet Character... Welcome Summer Penguin to MUPPET BABIES
We found out about a year ago that Disney Junior was bringing the 1980’s cartoon Muppet Babies back. Well, in a recent tweet from Disney Junior, they revealed a new muppet for the show named Summer Penguin and she’s adorable.
Summer looks fantastic and fun. In a short video with EW, Tom Warburton (the Executive Producer) talks a bit about who Summer is. He outlines her as more of an outgoing creative type who likes art:
We had previously heard that the show was going to use actual puppets, but now it looks like they’ve decided to go with a 3D, cartoony animation style similar to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
Muppet Babies is set to air in March 2018.
