Someone has added The Muppets Show theme tune to Dirty Dancing’s classic final dance scene and as you can imagine, it’s everything.

Johnny and Baby’s finale performance was given a Muppets makeover this week as the two characters were seen to dance along to The Muppets theme song in a viral edit.

It has since made the rounds across social media as fans of both the Muppets and the 1987 film came together over the feel-good video.

Watch: Johnny and Baby dance along to The Muppets Show theme song

If you’ve ever wondered if the iconic Dirty Dancing final dance would fit with The Muppets Show theme song, it does … surprisingly well.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve watched Dirty Dancing or not, you will probably be familiar with Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey’s iconic dance to (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life at the end of the 1987 film.

This week a video of the classic scene went viral after Twitter user @Pandamoanimum added the theme tune from The Muppets Show to the dance. Check it out below:

The original post was first shared on Tuesday (17 May) and has since gone on to amass thousands of likes and shares on the micro-blogging site.

For many, it appeared to be a cross over they didn’t know they needed:

Another user admitted they would watch a Muppet’s recreation of the scene. We can totally see Kermit and Miss Piggy killing the routine too:

A Dirty Dancing sequel is in the works

The Dirty Dancing Muppets edit follows hype for a sequel to the 1987 film. The sequel was confirmed back in 2020, with more details about the project released earlier this month.

As per the Deadline, the sequel will be set in the 90s and will see Jennifer Grey reprise her role as Baby.

While the new film probably won’t opt to include The Muppets Show song in its soundtrack, the movie reportedly will include 90s hip-hop.
