The 18 episodes of The Muppet Show with the warning have been picked out from five series of Jim Henson’s series, which was a big hit in the 1970s and 1980s and starred Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy.
According to the LA Times, the warning refers to negative depictions of people from other cultures including Native Americans and those from the Middle East.
The publication also notes that two episodes from the final season are left out entirely – one featured Chris Langham, who was a writer on the show and stepped in to host after a celebrity guest pulled out.
The actor, who went on to star in Armando Iannucci’s The Thick Of It, was sentenced to 10 months in prison in 2007 for downloading indecent videos of children from the internet.
However, another episode, starring guest host Brooke Shields, is absent from Disney Plus for a different reason – music rights.
Several songs have also had to be edited out of other episodes because of copyright and licensing issues.
