Disney Junior has revealed Jenny Slate, known for voicing roles in Disney’s “Zootopia” and “Bob’s Burgers” on Fox, is playing the role of Miss Nanny on the new “Muppet Babies” series.
Miss Nanny, who is memorably only ever seen from the neck down, is the loving caretaker of young Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, and Animal, as well as Summer the Penguin, a new character. When the show originally aired on CBS from 1984 – 1991, the role of Nanny was played by Barbara Billingsley.
