The Muppets Mayhem is a forthcoming series starring Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem for Disney+.

The series follows The Electric Mayhem — Dr. Teeth on lead vocals and keyboard, Animal on drums, Janice on lead guitar, Floyd Pepper on bass guitar, Zoot on saxophone, and Lips on trumpet — as they set out to record their first studio album of songs.[1]

The Muppets will be joined by Lilly Singh as Nora, a junior executive for a record label who will oversee the band in their efforts.[1] Additional celebrities from the music industry will feature as cameos, and the series is intended to culminate with the release of an album.[2] Taj Mowry was later announced as a part of the cast as Gary “Moog” Moogowski, a super fan of the band who uses his knowledge of the group to aid Nora.[3]

The series is being developed by Adam F. Goldberg, Bill Barretta, and Jeff Yorkes with a ten episode order that began filming on April 25, 2022.[1][4][5] Each episode will run approximately thirty minutes, with the production team looking at the series as a five hour movie narrative.[6] Writers on the series include Julie Bean, Hannah Friedman, Crystal Shaw, Hans Rodionoff, Gabrielle Rodriguez, and Danielle Maransky.[7]

Craig Kief serves as director of photography for the series, and Matt Sohn serves as one of the directors.[8]
