The iconic member of the band decides to explore the opening day attraction. He wisecracks his way through scenes of the ride, talking to the animatronic characters and taking digs at his fellow Muppets.
“The Muppets Mayhem” revolves around the fusion of an old-school band with modern music-making techniques. The Muppets portray a group of characters who lack clear goals or ambitions, adopting a laid-back and non-committal approach to their plans. However, when a determined character enters the picture, urging them to work towards a more defined future, comedic conflicts arise. Floyd Pepper is one of the main characters from the new show.
