Playtime is about to get more scientific on Disney Junior’s Muppet Babies because Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker are coming into the picture. The two pint-sized scientists are making their debut in the reboot soon, and we have an exclusive look at the first time Nanny ( voiced by Jenny Slate) introduces the duo to Summer, Fozzie Bear, Animal, Kermit, and Miss Piggy. Watch:

The scene takes me back to life on the playground.
Anyway. Baking is precise, so I imagine Bunsen and Beaker would be a tremendous help in measuring and mixing. (Well, Bunsen would.) Beaker has a knack for making a mess, though you have to give him respect for always having beakers with him so he can conduct (and perhaps mess up) experiments at any given time. And whatever Beaker’s flaws may be, he can always make up for them with a cute, “Meep meep.”
How will cookie making with Bunsen and Beaker go? Watch the full episode on Disney Channel on Friday, April 13, at 10AM ET/PT.
