Disney Channel Bumpers: Misc



Up to date as of February 02, 2010

From Muppet Wiki

When The Disney Channel began airing Muppets Tonight in 1997, Kermit the Frog, Gonzo, and Rizzo the Rat appeared in a number of promos for the Disney Channel, talking about the channel and about Muppets Tonight.

In the fall of 2005, several Muppets were featured in a series of Disney Channel identification promos. In these promos, featuring Disney stars and characters, the star identifies themselves and announces the channel, then waves a magical wand, drawing the Disney Channel logo (a tilted Mickey Mouse Head outline). The promos were played regularly on the network. Each promo runs for 10 seconds.




Muppets Tonight

  • Rizzo the Rat dresses in a Mickey Mouse costume and promotes Muppets Tonight, of which he claims to be the star. Kermit the Frog corrects him, saying that he is on Muppets Tonight but is not the star. Rizzo then tries to convince Kermit that he is Mickey Mouse, but Kermit doesn't believe him. Gonzo, however, mistakes him for Mickey.
  • Gonzo and Rizzo promote the show that's on next (after Muppets Tonight on Sundays), Goin' Wild with Jeff Corwin. After hearing that the show is about animals, Rizzo asks if there will be any rats on the show, and Gonzo tells him that he'll just have to watch to find out.

Identification Bumpers

  • Kermit the Frog says, "Hi ho, Kermit the Frog here, and you're watching Disney Channel!" He draws the logo, and inspects it proudly, saying, "Mm hmm, nice!".
  • Miss Piggy declares, "Bonjour! I'm Miss Piggy, and you are watching Disney Channel!". She gracefully draws the logo and then tops it off with her famous line of "Kissy kissy!"
  • Fozzie Bear says, "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!"
  • Gonzo says, "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. Gonzo hangs on to the wand, flying back and forth, and finally crashing into the screen.
  • Pepe the King Prawn says, "Hola! I'm Pepe, and you are watching Disney Channel, okay." Then Pepe draws the Disney Channel logo with the wand and laughs happily.
  • Animal shouts "DISNEY! DISNEY!" and just scribbles with the wand. The scribbles morph into the Disney Channel logo, and Animal exclaims "Mickey!" Then, in true Animal character, he starts eating the wand!
