New Poster for ‘The Muppets Mayhem’ Series Released by Disney+

Disney+ has released a fresh poster for their new original series, “The Muppets Mayhem”. All episodes of the new series, which is set to focus on Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem band, are set to be released on the Disney+ streaming platform on May 10.

Based on the characters created by the legendary Jim Henson, “The Muppets Mayhem” is co-created by Bill Barretta, Jeff Yorkes, and Adam F. Goldberg. It stars Lilly Singh as Nora, an aspiring record producer who is helping Electric Mayhem record their first album. Nora has help from her social media influencer sister, Hannah (Saara Chaudry), and Electric Mayhem fan, Gary “Moog” Moogowski (Tahj Mowry).

The latest official poster for the new Muppets series features a concerned Singh in the passenger seat of an unstable psychedelic bus, joined by the band members of The Electric Mayhem and their instruments.The tagline, “Rock Is How They Roll” is written in the trippy looking clouds up top.

Barretta cited his inspiration for the series as the 2016 Outside Lands music festival when Electric Mayhem played a set. The resulting question: “What if the Muppets went on tour?”

“It was unbelievable,” he said. “It was … one of the most amazing experiences I’ve had with the Muppets. There was something like 30,000 people that came to the park. I thought, ‘Well, there’s something there.’ What if this band went on the road? What if the band went on tour? And so, I started developing an idea for a show about the band because we don’t know that much about them.”

The premise of the show brings an old-school band to the modern age with newer ways of making music. The comedy of it lies in juxtaposing older ideals with newer expectations. In addition, The Muppets play a group of characters that have no real goals or ambitions; they are relaxed and non-committal about their plans. When a character enters the story that’s determined to get them to work towards a more specific future, it creates conflict and a humorous element. This dichotomy is one of the show’s comedic pillars.
