Great Moments in American History.” Sam Eagle, the wildly passionate patriotic eagle, will join Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear, James Jefferson, town crier of Liberty Square, outside of The Hall of Presidents to tell historical tales in hilarious fashion as only the Muppets can do. The show will feature an original song with plenty of silly Muppets humor and will re-tell the story of Paul Revere’s midnight ride and the signing of the Declaration of Independence. You can catch the Muppets own unique take on the founding fathers and the birth of the United States of America multiple times throughout the day.
