The Muppets appeared on the ‘Duncan Dream House’ episode of ‘Good Luck Charlie’

Bob Duncan may be a pest control specialist, but even he couldn’t save the Duncan home from termites he accidentally brought into the house. In the “All Fall Down” episode, the Good Luck Charlie characters leave their home that that is literally falling apart. 

In the “Duncan Dream House” episode, however, they start imagining life in a bigger, better house. For Teddy, that includes moving out of the basement. For the boys, that includes individual bedrooms. It isn’t until Teddy gets a surprise visit from the Muppets that she realizes how special her old house was.

Muppets characters like Miss Piggy and Kermit appear to Teddy in a dream and sing the original, “Dream House” with the actor. Eventually, Teddy convinces her other family members to just fix the house they already have. That’s exactly what they do.

The Muppets recorded an original song, ‘Dream House,’ for ‘Good Luck Charlie’

They’ve got a floor at their feet and the stars up above. It’s thanks to the guidance from Kermit, and his own inspirational song, that Teddy decides the Duncan family can’t move from their now disheveled home. 

According to the Muppet’s Fan Club, the episode’s original song “Dream House” is written by Grammy and Emmy Award winner, Adam Schlesinger, and produced by Schlesinger and Steven M. Gold of Saturday Night Live and The Colbert Report.

The official video for the song on YouTube has over a hundred thousand views. However, several other songs featuring the Muppets earned millions of views on streaming platforms like Spotify. That includes hits from The Muppet Movie and its sequel, Muppets Most Wanted.
