Disney Junior has been accused of “pushing the trans agenda” after an episode of its popular children’s TV show, “Muppet Babies”, showed Gonzo wearing a dress to a ball.
The episode titled “Gonzo-rella / Summer’s Car Trouble” sees the beloved character struggling to decide what to wear to the royal ball.
He wants to go dressed as a princess but his friends say he should dress like a knight because boys are “not supposed to wear a dress”.
But with a wave of his wand, his “Fairy Ratfather” makes his dream come, transforming Gonzo into a princess complete with gown and glass slippers.
When he arrives at the ball, he tells his friends he is “Gonzorella” but his appearance is so altered that they do not realize it’s Gonzo.
Conservative commentator Candace Owens accused Disney of “pushing the trans agenda on children. This is sick and PERVERTED. Everyone should be disturbed by predatory cartoons meant to usher children into gender dysphoria.”
Nick Williams, defensive end for the Detroit Lions, agreed, posting, “Let kids be kids. It’s muppet babies for crying out loud! Be aware of what shows your kids are watching because these networks are trying to indoctrinate and pervert little children’s minds.”
Other commentators described this move as a “catch-them-young-for-satan agenda, in which the minds of your people are encroached and prepared for perverted sexual orientation. The parents are advised to sift what their kids watch.
In the “perverted episode: “Gonzorella” has to flee the ball before “cake-o-clock” when the magic spell is reversed, leaving behind only a glass slipper.
Later, when they tell him what a great ball he missed and how this “mysterious new princess” ran away leaving behind a glass slipper, he confesses that it was him all along.
When Miss Piggy asks why he didn’t say who he really was, Gonzo answers, “Because you all expected me to look a certain way.”
“I don’t want you to be upset with me,” he added.
Miss Piggy then apologizes and says “it wasn’t very nice of us to tell you what to wear to our ball”.
Another character called Summer chimes in saying, “you’re our friend, and we love you any way you are”.
