The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History

Throughout the day, J.J. and the Muppets share their own unique take on the founding fathers as they recount the tale of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, complete with an original song and plenty of humor.

At other times, you may catch the Muppets’ version of the midnight ride of Paul Revere, presented in hysterical fashion as only they can.

For over 60 years, the Muppets have entertained film and television audiences with their unique blend of heart and humor. The creation of the late visionary Jim Henson, the Muppets are among the world’s most recognized and beloved characters. Since the Muppets joined The Walt Disney Company in 2004, they have starred in award-winning feature films, television specials and movies, music videos and most recently, the ABC primetime series The Muppets. They have made hundreds of high-profile appearances, have their own attraction at Walt Disney World and are featured in a wide array of Muppet merchandise.

About John Saccheri

John Saccheri has been rooted in the Disney culture from childhood. John only had the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World once, at the age of 5. After returning home, he never stopped talking about it, yearning to return. His parents were worried about this “obsession,” but John began working at the age of 12 with a focus on saving up for the next Disney trip. He was able to visit Disney World at least once a year from 14 years old onward. Today, a successful entrepreneur, John was able to move from his hometown of Long Island, New York, to Central Florida to be close to the Mouse. Going to the parks still seems like a fantasy to him!
