The Muppets meets The Office/30 Rock. Of course this is going to be great.

We heard the good news about Kermit and the gangs return to TV back in May but now that Comic-Con has come and passed, ABC have decided to release the first ten minutes of the show that we "were never supposed to see".

The so-called pitch that convinced network bosses to bring Jim Henson's characters back to the small screen is ten minutes of Muppet-y gold, with some good old-fashioned celeb cameos and ridiculous slapstick thrown in for good measure.

No word yet on whether or not we'll see it on Irish TV screens, but fingers crossed one of the networks here picks it up so we can enjoy all of their antics (but let's be honest, we're mostly here for Animal's).
