The Muppets (Kermit, Joe the Legal Weasel, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, and Animal) featured in a 2020 promotional art piece for the service.

Disney+ is a subscription-based video streaming service owned by The Walt Disney Company, launched on November 12, 2019. The service offers original and library content from Disney and its various subsidiaries, including Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, 20th Century Fox, and National Geographic.

Various Muppet movies, series and shorts are available on the platform and packaged as part of "The Muppets Collection." Many titles debuted when the service launched while additional titles and episodes continued to be added after the initial launch. Notably, over a decade after its last home media release, all five seasons of The Muppet Show (albeit with multiple edits and omissions) were released to the service on February 19, 2021.

The series Muppets Now was produced exclusively for Disney+, originally developed as shorts but reworked and released as traditional half-hour episodes in 2020. Another project, Muppets Live Another Day, was reported to also be in development for the platform but was ultimately scrapped. The Jim Henson Company-produced Earth to Ned premiered on the platform in 2020. Disney+ also produced and released the original special Muppets Haunted Mansion in 2021 and the original series The Muppets Mayhem in 2023.

An episode of the anthology series Prop Culture focused on The Muppet Movie, and a segment of Disney Insider mentioned the Regal Eagle Smokehouse while another focused on the making of Earth to Ned and another explored the making of Muppets Haunted Mansion.

Several titles on the platform include bonus feature "extras" along with the main title โ€• including Doc Hopper's Commercial, outtakes of Kermit riding a bike, and Jim Frawley's Camera Tests on The Muppet Movie; the restored extended cut of The Muppet Christmas Carol with the deleted song "When Love Is Gone"; multiple deleted scenes from The Muppets; and a blooper reel and "On-Set with Walter" featurette on Muppets Most Wanted. In 2023 the platform released upgraded 4K Ultra HD transfers of The Muppet Movie, The Great Muppet Caper and The Muppet Christmas Carol for the first time ever.

In December 2022, the Disney+ YouTube channel shared an original video "Gonzo the Great: A Career Retrospective," in which Gonzo recalls his roles in past Muppet productions (namely those available to stream on the platform).

In May 2023, it was announced that a number of Disney+ originals would be removed from the service, including Earth to Ned and several programs with Muppet guest appearances (including Best in Snow, Foodtastic, and Prop Culture).[1]
