Looking good Sajak! Welcome to the Cast of beloved characters! So, what’s to expect from this all-new Halloween special? Besides seeing all your Muppet favorites like Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, and more, the beloved Muppet, Gonzo, will be in a role like no other he has played before as it is reported that “In this new series, the Great Gonzo – world-famous daredevil artiste, has done it all, seen it all, and survived it all. But on Halloween night, the fearless Gonzo takes on the greatest challenge of his life by spending one very daring night in the most grim-grinning place on Earth … The Haunted Mansion.” Check out the original announcement from the Muppets video below:
