Conservative commentator Candace Owens says she’s in disbelief that even the “Muppet Babies” childrens’ cartoon is preaching transgender ideology to kids.

“This is sick and PERVERTED,” Owens tweeted on Sunday, embedding a video clip of recent episode of the cartoon, in which the character Gonzo turns into a cross-dressing “Gonzorella.” “You all expected me to look a certain way. I didn’t want you to be upset with me,” Gonzorella says following the transformation and revelation.

Everyone should be disturbed by the cartoon’s predatory effort to inflict gender dysphoria on children, Owens writes:

“I can’t believe I’m tweeting this but.. they are pushing the trans agenda on children via muppet babies. This is sick and PERVERTED. Everyone should be disturbed by predatory cartoons meant to usher children into gender dysphoria.

“Bring back manly muppets, anyone?”

The producers of Disney’s Muppet Babies series had been planning such an episode for a while, in the hope that it would inspire children, Breitbart reports:

The episode, titled “Gonzo-rella,” saw Gonzo get his wish to dress up as a princess to the “royal ball” after Piggy tells him boys have to play knights.

“Very early on, we wanted to do an episode where Gonzo just showed up to the Playroom wearing a skirt,” Muppet Babies executive producer Tom Warburton told, which is run by the corporate-owned Disney fan club. Muppet Babies is aimed at children aged 4 to 7.


“We hope he inspires kids watching to be 347% of themselves in their own way, too.”
