They're The Muppets, and You're Watching Disney Channel!

On Monday I reported that Gonzo was featured in a new Disney Channel identification promo. Since the time of that report some more Disney Channel promos featuring the Muppets have begun airing on Disney Channel. Disney Channel runs a series of channel identification promos featuring Disney stars proclaiming "I'm so-and-so, and you're watching Disney Channel". Then they wave a magical green wand, drawing the Disney Channel logo (the tilted Mickey Mouse Head). In addition to Gonzo, some newly spotted ads feature Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie, Pepe, and Animal.

As reported earlier, Gonzo's promo shows the weirdo saying, "Hi! I'm the Great Gonzo and You're Watching Disney Channel". He then draws the Disney Channel logo with the wand; soon the wand goes out of control and flies away (with Gonzo holding on) causing him to fly back and forth across the screen (and finally crashing into it). Kermit shows up in a promo for Disney Channel, saying "Hi ho, Kermit the Frog here! And you're watching Disney Channel!" he draws logo and inspects it proudly saying "Mm hmm, nice!". The next new promo features Miss Piggy. The diva declares "I am Miss Piggy, and you are watching Disney Channel!". She gracefully draws logo and then tops it off with her famous line of "Kissy kissy!"

Fozzie appears in a 10-second promo for the channel. He stated "Ahh! I'm Fozzie Bear! And you're watching Disney Channel!" He carefully draws the Disney Channel logo with the wand and rejoices with a classic “Wocka wocka!" Pepe takes the spotlight in the next 10-second promo, declaring, "Hola! My name is Pepe, and you are watching Disney Channel! Hokay?" Then Pepe draws the Disney Channel logo with the wand and laughs happily. The sixth promo ad features the wild Muppet Animal. Animal is shouts "DISNEY! DISNEY!" and just scribbles with the wand and scribbles soon morph into the Disney Channel logo, to which Animal exclaims "Mickey!". Then, in true Animal character, he starts eating the wand!

The promos are played regularly and lasts 10-seconds, predicting exactly when it will play next is impossible so keep your eye on Disney Channel for the Muppets to pop up. So keep your eyes peeled for Kermit, Fozzie, Gonzo, Piggy, Pepe, and Animal telling you that you're watching Disney Channel.
