Fans of iconic Muppets, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy, are in for a treat.

All five seasons of Jim Henson's famed variety show, "The Muppet Show,” will begin streaming on Disney+ on Friday, Feb. 19.

The TV show, which premiered in 1976 and ran through 1981, featured Kermit, Missy Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Annie Sue Gonzo, the Swedish Chef, Scooter and more.

A wide range of famous guests, including Steve Martin, Elton John, Liza Minnelli, Julie Andrews, Mark Hamill and many others appeared on the show over the years.

Seasons four and five of the hit series have never been released on home entertainment.

"It's going to be great to welcome back longtime fans, and to give a new generation of fans a chance to see how we got our start, how Miss Piggy became a star and so much more,” Kermit the Frog said in a statement.

"Today, I’m proud to say: 'It’s time to play the music, light the lights and meet the Muppets on Disney Plus tonight!'" Kermit added. "And as for Statler and Waldorf, the two old guys in the balcony, I can only add: 'Sorry, guys, but….here we go again.”

The fun doesn't stop there. Disney+ subscribers can also check out other Muppets-related content available on the streaming platform, including films like "Muppet Treasure Island," "Muppets Most Wanted," "The Muppet Christmas Carol," and more.
