TV WEEK: The Muppets series premiere billboards...

In our postmodern culture, what's old is constantly new again, and after forty years in show business, you could say The Muppets are the ultimate masters of reinvention.

This Fall everyone's favourite puppet characters are back in their own headliner show on ABC, this time drawing back the curtain on their fame in a new documentary style series to show us their personal lives, warts and all.

Get ready to see a different side of Jim Henson's creations. Find out how 'Kermit' and 'Miss Piggy' are coping post-split and who they are now dating, and discover what 'Gonzo', 'Fozzie', 'Statler and Waldorf', 'Animal', 'Beaker', 'Rowlf', 'Scotter' and even more obscure Muppets do on their day off (and what they really think about each other when the camera isn't rolling).

It's a brilliant concept and is sure to put the likes of the Kardashians, Real Housewives and other reality series to shame.
The Muppets were never meant to appeal just to kids and they've always had that sophistication and satirical tongue-in-cheek comedy, so Daily Billboard for one is looking forward to a more grown up and relevant offering that isn't solely fueled by our collective nostalgia.

These funny billboards for The Muppets series launch were first snapped at the intersection of Melrose and Highland Avenues on August 26, with the Kermit 'full frontal nudity' version spotted along Sunset Boulevard on September 6 and Miss Piggy's 'egotistical pig' special extension spied along Century Boulevard near LAX airport on September 8, 2015.
If you're a fan of the felt and foam creations, be sure to also check out these billboards for the recent Muppets movies and this solo Kermit Live your dreams billboard.
You'll want to take a look at all these original film costumes and props from The Muppets and Muppets Most Wanted on display too, including Miss Piggy's Vivienne Westwood wedding dress.

Fingers crossed that this new series will propel The Muppets into mainstream stardom once again.

Yes, the world may be full of egotistical pigs, but there's only one Miss Piggy, and you better believe it.

UPDATED: Here's also a Fozzie Bear poster for the new series with a fun waxing theme, 'changing the TV manscape', indeed, spied along La Brea Avenue on September 20, 2015.

UPDATED: By the looks of things, L.A. wasn't the only city that The Muppets spent big to help their new series launch this Fall.

The Muppets has been picked up for a full season of episodes so they must be doing something right, but let's see if this behind-the-scenes at Miss Piggy's late-night talkshow can survive beyond this initial season.
