The Muppets Present... Great Moments in American History is a live show at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom park that premiered in 2016.

Performed in the Liberty Square area outside The Hall of Presidents, the show features Sam Eagle, Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear and Liberty Square town crier James Jefferson performing comedic reenactments of moments from Colonial American history. One version of the show reenacts the events leading to the Declaration of Independence, and an alternating version retells the ride of Paul Revere.

The regular Muppet performers for the featured characters pre-recorded their dialogue, which is synchronized by the park's in-house puppeteers.

The show ran regularly from October 2, 2016 through October 5, 2019. It returned for limited runs in December 23-31, 2019,[1] and February 15-17, 2020.[2]

The same windows have also been used for Kermit, Fozzie, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Sam, and two chickens to make physically distant, silent, holiday-themed appearances in November 2020.[3][4]

Official description

Sam Eagle, the fiercely patriotic American eagle who is forever trying to set a high moral standard for the Muppets, will join Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, The Great Gonzo and James Jefferson, town crier of Liberty Square, as they gather outside The Hall of Presidents to present historical tales in hysterical fashion as only they can. From the midnight ride of Paul Revere to the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the Muppets appear throughout the day to share with Guests, their own unique take on the founding fathers and the birth of the United States of America. Featuring an original song and plenty of wacky Muppets humor, 'The Muppets Present... Great Moments in American History' will make its debut in October 2016.
