The Muppets Mobile Lab

      I was lucky enough on my last trip to Epcot to see the Mobile Muppets lab. It is a rocket like 2 wheeled contraption built just for Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and my favorite Muppet Beaker.

 This is a device kind of like a Segway, that holds the 2 Muppets.  The amazing part is it's all animatronic and is controlled by a cast member at a different location. This contraption has all the  bells and whistles that a mobile science lab needs. With a microphone and camera hidden inside, shooting  confetti cannons, spray jets and outside  flashing moving signs that change throughout the  10 minute show.

 This show has appeared at Disney California Adventure and Hong Kong Disneyland as well. It is now back in Orlando, as it first appeared back in 2007. It has gone around the world and now 10 years later, it is back.

  If you know anything about Dr. Bunsen, you know he is a scientist and an inventor.  Throughout  the show he lets his assistant, Beaker, assist him. A fun surprise is that Bunson also gets a lucky audience member involved too. The show is interactive everyone in the audience  gets a good view. This show is part of the Disney living character initiative where guests can become part of a character interaction experience.

 The show takes place behind Spaceship earth, near the pin trading station. There are no listed times of the show and it is put on at random times throughout the day.  Have you seen the show? What did you think about it?
