August 21, 2007 – The Muppet Mobile Labs Interactive Audio-Animatronic Premieres at Epcot
“Now, before we continue this conversation, let me just activate the Hob Knob.”
On August 21, 2007, almost six months after its California debut, the interactive audio-animatronic Muppet Mobile Lab made its debut in Walt Disney World’s Epcot park. Featuring the characters Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and assistant Beaker, the audio-animatronic went around the park freely, interacting with guests as they entertained the crowd with their best Muppet jokes and puns. The new feature was part of a test-run by the Disney Imagineers to create more characters that could interact with the guests as they mill about the various parks.
