The platform started broadcasting the show on February 19, all 18 episodes being accompanied by clarifications on the content: “These stereotypes were incorrect then and are incorrect even now. Instead of eliminating the content, we preferred to warn about its negative impact, learn from it and generate a debate to create a more inclusive future.
However, the disclaimer does not explain what stereotypes it would be about, although in one of the episodes the Confederate flag appears, associated with “white supremacy” and racism, notes the quoted source.
The Muppet Show was broadcast between 1976 and 1981 (for a period it was also broadcast by the Romanian national television, despite the censorship of the communist regime – ed.). The show had a famous guest in each episode, the entire production being very successful at the time.
Muppets brings together the characters Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Animal, Fozzie and Gonzo, created in 1954-1955 by the puppeteer Jim Henson. The same disclaimer was recently introduced for the Disney productions “Lady and the Tramp”, “The Jungle Book”, “The Aristocats”, “Dumbo”, “Peter Pan” and “Swiss Family Robinson”.
