The Electric Mayhem, the Muppets’ longtime house band, is gearing up for the big time in a new series on Disney Plus with Lilly Singh.
A metal cube engulfed in metallic ooze has more staying power than the Muppets. It appears that Jim Henson’s lovable creations will always be a part of the entertainment industry, and that’s a good thing. Despite the fact that not all of their recent projects have been commercial successes, there is something endearing and exciting about the announcement of a new project.
Fans of the Muppets maybe even more eager for this than they were for the Fraggle Rock reimagining. According to that one Animal Insurance commercial, there are a few aspects of the franchise that have stood the test of time. The Muppets’ music, or at least the band that creates it, appears to be one such aspect. A special guest has been added to the line-up for a new project from this well-known group of felt-clad performers.
There will be a new series on Disney Plus titled The Muppets Mayhem, featuring Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, a band that has appeared in numerous Muppet projects dating all the way back to The Muppet Show in the 1970s. The Electric Mayhem will be the focus of the show as they prepare to record their debut studio album. They appear to have a particular talent for being late to the party.
With Lilly Singh as an executive trying to handle all the commotion that follows the Electric Mayhem’s demise, this new series is sure to be a hit! There’s no doubt that the band’s name is an appropriate one. There have been other high-profile celebrity encounters for the band, including Elton John and Dave Grohl, so this won’t be their first brush with fame. Singh, on the other hand, will opt to play a character rather than appear as herself in order to stand out from the trend.
Actor Adam F. Goldberg and longtime Muppets collaborator Bill Barretta will serve as executive producers and puppeteers for The Muppets Mayhem. Pepe the King Prawn and the Swedish Chef have all been voiced by Barretta during his time with The Muppets, which began in 1991. After Jim Henson’s tragic death, he stepped in to play Dr. Teeth, the Electric Mayhem’s leader.
The Muppets Haunted Mansion was a pleasant surprise, and it showed that the series has more to offer. Aside from that, Goldberg is an outspoken Muppets fan who has proven his abilities in the entertainment industry through his work on The Goldbergs. While the recent offerings of the franchise have left some unconvinced, this one has a lot going for it. At least, The Muppets Mayhem will offer some exciting new possibilities for The Muppets thanks to Barretta and Singh.
On Disney Plus, you can now watch The Muppet Show.
