The Muppets Mayhem - Can You Picture That?

The opening episode of The Muppets Mayhem introduces us to Nora (Lilly Singh), an aspiring low-level music executive for a dying record company, who discovers the label owns the rights to a never-recorded album by Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. Still rocking after all these years, the band has the popularity Nora needs to make a mark in the music industry. Although the wandering band agrees to make the album, wrangling the travelling insanity of the Electric Mayhem turns out to be a bigger challenge than Nora expected.

While I'm not sure that the premise is strong enough to last ten episodes, "Track 1: Can You Picture That?" certainly captures some of the wackiness and heart of the original Muppet Show. Highlights for me include Animal's (Eric Jacobson) unique brand of lovable crazy and the hot tub scene involving Nora and Dr. Teeth (Bill Barretta) and later the impromptu gathering and concert promoting the unusual effect on their environment reselling Nora on her unlikely plan of producing the band's first album.
