18 Suggested Plot Lines For The New "Muppets" Reboot

With news that a planned revival of The Muppets is aiming to be "more adult," here are some suggestions for how that could look.

Posted on

According to EW, ABC is reviving The Muppets with the intent of making it a "more adult" mockumentary-style series in the vein of The Office.

But given that The Muppets are generally thought of as being aimed at children, we figured ABC might need a little help figuring out how to up the "adult" factor.

Here are some plot lines that the new series should borrow.

1. Kermit's Uber driver takes him on a crazy inefficient route through Manhattan, but Kermit is too polite to say anything.

2. Fozzie Bear makes an offensive joke about rubber chickens on Twitter, is shamed into apologizing and deletes all his social media accounts.

3. Miss Piggy attempts to give herself Kylie Jenner lips, and accidentally makes her mouth look like two fat pieces of bacon.

4. Beaker and Dr. Bunsen Honeydew fight over the last Apple Watch, resulting in a falling out between the two.

5. Beaker develops a new app called "Meep!", which is now valued at over $50 billion.
