Feb 19 2021, 6:58 pm

During what’s arguably the best time in the history of humanity to sit at home and watch the tube, Disney Plus is releasing a new show and a classic series this weekend.

Along with a new episode of WandaVision, the streaming service is releasing the entire series of The Muppets.

So why not fuse a little bit of old and new this weekend?

The Muppet Show (Season 1 to 5)

As the great Kermit the Frog once said, “Time’s fun when you’re having flies.” And time’s about to get even more fun as the entire The Muppet Show series is now streaming on Disney Plus.

WandaVision – Episode 7 (Disney+ Original)

Set in a surreal world inspired by classic American sitcoms, approach WandaVision as if The Brady Bunch were in The Truman Show, meeting The Avengers.

Check out Daily Hive’s WandaVision review of the first three episodes right here.
