Millennials are having kids, and you know what that means—children’s TV is about to pivot hard toward ’90s kids.
It seems like the writers might have a little more wiggle room now that the show is at HBO. The five-minute clip teaches kids to stay open minded about trying new foods, with just enough meta TV references to keep parents from zoning out. The Muppets are hanging out in school uniforms instead of prison ones, but new girl Piper Snackman still needs to figure out where to sit. Also: Snackman is a funny name.
“We’ve got time for snacks,” croons a faux Regina Spektor in the opening credits.
“We always have cookies, that is our snack,” rasps Red, suspiciously eyeing an orange.
The show has come a long way from the Elmo’s World theme song.
