A premiere in style
Whether you grew up watching The Muppets and you want a memory, like if you have a boy or girl in your life with whom you want to share these endearing pop culture characters, we invite you to take a look at this new edition of LEGO in collaboration with Disney.
On May 1, LEGO posted a video on its official Twitter account announcing the new minifigures. It was a very faithful recreation of the opening what they used The Muppets from its premiere in 1976 to 1981. This initial number, with the magnitude of a musical, was the one that opened each episode.

What characters from The Muppets brings the LEGO collection?
The minifigure collection consists of 12 characters carefully selected: Animal, Beaker, Doctor Bunsen Honeydew, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Janice, Kermit the Frog, Peggy Pig, Rowlf the Dog, Statler, Swedish Chef and Waldorf.
How do I get all the Muppets minifigures?
LEGO has chosen to launch the collection as La Liga cards: in opaque envelopes. This gives it a touch of mystery and fun, since you won’t know for sure what you’re going to get. each sachet is worth €3.99.
For better or for worse, the most fans of the television series are going to have to meet to exchange the repeated figures, either in the park (as in their young days) or on eBay. The thing is yes you can buy the envelopes LEGO® Minifigures The Muppets (71033) online, but the official store puts a purchase limit of 12 sachets. We imagine that this measure has been taken in a very wise way to prevent our dear friends from scalpers do their thing again by depleting the stock and mining eBay and second-hand stores with the figures at absurdly high prices.
On the other hand, if you want to get a few figures, but make sure there are no duplicates, there is also a 6 pack that will bring you yes or yes some of your favorite Muppets. The Muppets thus adds to the LEGO collection as well as Sesame Street He did it a few months ago with several exclusive sets.
Where can I watch The Muppets?
In Spain, this puppet series was broadcast on TVE until the 1980s, on Antena 3 during the 1990s, and later on Canal+.
Right now, all the television episodes of The Muppets are available on the digital platform Disney+. Movies are also available The Muppets on this platform.
Disney bought the rights to The Muppets in 2004, changing the title to its original English name, The Muppets. This controversial decision did not sit very well with the Spanish public, who already had two generations of fans who had grown up with that name.
