Jenny Slate (Zootopia) will voice the iconic role of Miss Nanny in Disney Junior’s reimagined Muppet Babies, premiering this March on Disney Channel. Slate will bring to life the voice of the Muppet Babies’ loving and playful caregiver, a character originally voiced by legendary actress, the late Barbara Billingsley (Leave it to Beaver).
As in the original Emmy Award-winning series, Miss Nanny will only be visible from the torso down. Adding a new touch to the reimagined series, the pattern of Miss Nanny’s tights will change in each episode to reveal the story’s theme. As always, Miss Nanny gently and cheerfully encourages the Muppet Babies to use their imaginations to explore the farthest corners of the universe and to utilize their creative thinking to solve most any problem.
Also joining the cast are: Melanie Harrison (Fish Hooks) as Piggy; Dee Bradley Baker (Milo Murphy’s Law) as Animal; Ben Diskin (The Spectacular Spider-Man) as Gonzo; Eric Bauza (The Adventures of Puss in Boots) as Fozzie Bear; Jessica DiCicco (Puppy Dog Pals) as Summer; and rounding out the cast as Kermit is Matt Danner (Gravity Falls), who also serves as supervising director on the series
