Disney’s Muppet Babies Soundtrack Review
With Disney rebooting the classic 1980’s animated series, The Muppet Babies, for a new series, a new soundtrack has been released featuring characters like Animal, Fozzie, Gonzo, Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and Summer, the newest member of the Muppets.
The album kicks odd with a fun modern version of the classic theme song, before each of the Muppets gets to sing about a variety of different topics as we travel into the Muppet’s imagination. Which will no doubt tie directly into each episode of the upcoming series and teach children about sharing, playing and cheering up friends.
These songs are all uplifting and fun songs, perfect for young fans of the upcoming series, this will be perfect to add to any playlist for youngsters once the show airs. And while I might not be the target demographic, I really enjoyed listening to this album over the past week and had plenty of chuckles, since it captures the feeling of the Muppets perfectly.
There are many completely daft songs on here, including Gonzo singing about his Potato and Dr. Bunsen Honeydew singing about how to grow a rubber chicken. Which I’m sure kids are going to love.
I grew up on the original series as a child in the 80’s, the Muppet Babies, I wasn’t sure before downloading this album, would it live up to my Nostigia goggles and I think it’s important to look at this show and soundtrack as a child right now. This isn’t for fans of the Muppet Babies of the 80’s, it’s for young children of today, and I think that’s a good thing. As a new generation is about to fall in love with characters like Kermit and Miss Piggy.
This new Muppet Babies soundtrack is a perfect sidekick to the new series and younger listeners are going to love it. With lots of catchy and sometimes cheesy songs about play, it’s about entertaining and educating children, not fulfilling a nostalgic memory.
REVIEW SCORE: 7 out of 10
