It takes a pretty big milestone for the Henson Company to decide to introduce a new a new Muppet. They introduced Pepe the King Prawn back in 1996 with the launch of the Muppets Tonight TV series, and that may just be the last time we’ve seen a new Muppet join the gang. Until now.
With Jason Segal’s new Muppets script comes a brand new Muppet named Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, who wishes nothing more than to visit Muppet Studios with his big brother, played by Segal. Consider this character a bit of a surrogate for Segal’s love of Henson’s work and the craze which was and still is The Muppets.
We’ve got a brand new clip for you, in which Walter and his brother Segal sing about their beloved hometown and why they wouldn’t need anything outside of it.
