Miley Cyrus meets the Muppets in Disney Channel special

Studiodcmiley

Hmmm, maybe Disney is finally getting serious about mounting a Muppets revival. I hope so.

Mouse House will inject a big dose of Disney Channel star power — Miley Cyrus level star power — into our favorite fuzzy puppet troupe next month with the spesh “Studio DC: Almost Live.”

It’s described as “a music-filled sketch comedy show with classic Muppets backstage antics.” Sounds like a trial balloon for a new spin on “The Muppet Show.”

Miley is set to jam with Muppet house band the Electric Mayhem (Maybe she’ll do “Piece of My Heart”? Maybe not). Ashley Tisdale duets with Studiodctisdale Kermit on “High School Musical” number “Bop to the Top,” and Miss Piggy tries to nose her way in to the epicenter of teen pop stardom by casting herself as the Jonas “sister” and performing with the red-hot Jonas Brothers.

Sounds like this could be a lot of fun if written and directed in the tradition of the “Muppet Show’s” cheeky-spoofy-silly tone. (Which is a high standard to meet.)

“Studio DC” is hosted by Dylan and Cole Sprouse of “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody.” Seems a little funny that Fozzie Bear, Kermit or Gonzo the Great wouldn’t be at least a co-host…but I’ll reserve judgment until I see the spesh, which bows Aug. 3.

It is exec produced by Mouse’s appointed Muppet master, Martin Baker.
