‘The Muppets Mayhem’ Brings Home Three Wins at 2024 Kidscreen Awards

The Muppets Mayhem had a solid showing at the 2024 Kidscreen Awards. This Disney+ original, which follows the adventures of The Electric Mayhem as they make their first album, won three awards at the event. The awards were for Best New Series, Best Live-Action Series in Kids Programming, and Best Music.

The awards were three of 20 that Disney brought home at the awards show. The Muppets Mayhem and Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur led the Disney pack by each winning three awards. Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur won for the Best Animated Series, Best One-Off, Special or TV Movie, and Best in Class in the Kids Programming category.

This win for The Muppets Mayhem comes after it was announced that the series will only be one season long and not renewed for a second. Last year, Daps Magic had the opportunity to interview The Electric Mayhem ahead of The Muppets Mayhem’s arrival on Disney+. That interview can be seen here:
