"Disney Drive-On with The Muppets" Original Shorts Series Debuts Today on Disney Movies Anywhere

By Official Disney Store Blogger, Aug 01, 2014 11:30 AM

The brand new cloud-based digital movie service announced on our blog earlier this year, Disney Movies Anywhere (DMA), just announced the debut of an all-new original shorts series "Disney Drive-On with The Muppets," exclusively available on the service for a limited time starting today!

In celebration of the home entertainment release for Muppets Most Wanted, this six-part original series will release two new episodes each Friday. "Disney Drive-On with The Muppets" brings you everything you've come to love and expect from The Muppets, including special celebrity cameos! Be sure to visit the Discover Section within DMA each week to view new episodes of the series at

After being left in charge of the Muppets' office by Kermit, Pepe the King Prawn takes on the responsibility of "mentoring" Walter on the business of Hollywood. Still considered the "new guy" with the Muppets, Walter is given low-level jobs working alongside his fellow Muppets at their office in the famed Walt Disney Studios in Burbank. He quickly learns there is a lot more to making movies than he thought! Developing projects may not always be so glamorous, but Walter is still excited to tackle new challenges, and discovers life on the Disney Lot is certainly a fun and funny adventure.

Check out the trailer below and a sneak peek clip from Episode 1!
