Disney+ invited us to revisit the Muppetverse in The Muppets Mayhem, but our stay in this world has been pretty short. The streaming giant pulled the plug on this musical comedy series, which centers on the fictional band The Electric Mayhem, after only one season.

The Muppets Mayhem saw Dr. Teeth’s band The Electric Mayhem trying to finally record their first studio album 45 years after their inception. Dr. Teeth must navigate the crazy, contemporary music scene alongside his bandmates Sgt. Floyd Pepper, Janice, Lips, Zoot, Animal, and a young music executive Nora, who must deal with their madness.

Lilly Singh led the series as Nora, and she was joined by the Muppet performers Matt Vogel as Floyd, Bill Barretta as Dr. Teeth, Peter Linz as Lips, Dave Goelz as Zoot, David Rudman as Janice, and Eric Jacobson as Animal.

Jeff Yorkes, who developed this series for Disney+ alongside Adam F. Goldberg and Bill Barretta, bid farewell to The Muppets Mayhem on social media.

“What a long, strange trip it’s been! The highs (thanks Zoot!), the lows… A huge thank you to our loyal fans and viewers. I hope audiences continue to discover our little show and that it brings them some joy… and some Mayhem!! Rock on!!” he wrote on X, formally known as Twitter.
