An ad for ABC-TV's new show “The Muppets” features Kermit the Frog and the caption: "Finally. A network TV show with full frontal nudity.”
This new version of the kids' show from 1976-1981 will feature Kermit’s split from Miss Piggy, interspecies marriage and a joke about marijuana legalization, noted the Daily Mail in August.
However, Fox News radio host Todd Starnes was not amused by the ad or the change of the show to more adult topics. He lamented on FoxNews.com: "How many parents want to explain the punchline of the interspecies dating scene to their five-year-old?"
The conservative activist group One Million Moms sounded the alert on their website: "The new show is aimed at a mature, modern audience and addresses subjects not suitable for family viewing."
"...Many parents unknowingly will let their children watch an episode only to find out its perverted nature too late, unless they are alerted ahead of time. 1MM and others need to get the word out to families to avoid this program at all costs. Please forward this to everyone you know!"
