Muppet*vision 3-D, more appropriately, 4-D, can only be seen at the Disney's Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World, Orlando, FL and also at California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort, Anaheim, CA. This "4-D" film begins with an entertaining 15 minute pre-show in the waiting area. The movie is shown in a huge theater on screen that is twice the size of a typical movie theater. 3-D glasses are required to see the film correctly. Antics abound in this hilarious show that is true to the classic Muppet Show. Kermit narrates while we visit the Muppet Lab which, of course, has its difficulties. This is where we meet Dr. Bunsen Honeydew's newest discovery, Waldo - the spirit of 3-D, who causes some trouble. Next, Miss Piggy sings a song where Bean Bunny tries to improve the show. Bean Bunny's good intentions do not satisfy Miss Piggy, and disheartened, he runs away with Waldo and the search is on in the theater. Finally, Sam Eagle is in charge of the grand finale, "A Salute to All Nations, but Mostly America" but, of course, things don't go so well. Don't forget to look at the rear of the theater to see the Chef running the projector... and the cannon.

Jim Henson's Muppet Babies, commonly known by the shortened title Muppet Babies, is an American animated television series that aired from September 15, 1984, to November 2, 1991, on CBS. The show portrays childhood versions of the Muppets living together in a nursery under the care of a human woman identified only as Nanny (the whereabouts of their parents are never addressed), who appears in almost every episode, but her face is never visible; only the babies' view of her pink skirt, purple sweater, and distinctive green and white striped socks is shown. The idea of presenting the Muppets as children first appeared in a dream sequence in The Muppets Take Manhattan (1984), released two months before Muppet Babies debuted, in which Miss Piggy imagined what it would be like if she and Kermit the Frog had grown up together.

The show premiered on NBC on October 11, 1975, under the original title NBC's Saturday Night. The show's comedy sketches, which often parody contemporary culture and politics, are performed by a large and varying cast of repertory and newer cast members. Each episode is hosted by a celebrity guest, who usually delivers the opening monologue and performs in sketches with the cast as with featured performances by a musical guest. An episode normally begins with a cold open sketch that ends with someone breaking character and proclaiming, "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!", properly beginning the show.
