We’ve got delicious news to share about a fan-favorite character making his adorable animated debut on a brand-new episode of Disney Junior’s Muppet Babies airing this Friday, September 27, on Disney Channel and in the DisneyNOW app (10:30 a.m. ET/PT). The Swedish Chef is paying a visit to the playroom, bringing with him his inimitable recipe for fun (not to mention an impressive platter of cookies)! Even as a preschooler, Chef seemingly goes nowhere without his signature hat and bowtie, though, of course, his mustache is still some years away. When Muppet Babies executive producer Tom Warburton spoke with D23 at the start of the animated series’ second season, he explained, “We went with his hair being a bit more shaggy, so that his hair almost becomes the mustache.”
See Chef’s grand entrance in the clip below, and tune in to Emmy® Award-nominated Muppet Babies tomorrow to find out what happens when Piggy challenges him to a cook-off. The very thought of that culinary competition leaves us with just one thought: Børk, børk, børk!
