The Muppets' Stage

Disney Xtreme Digital (also known as DxD, not to be confused with the Disney XD TV channel) was an online network on Disney.com that showcased exclusive Disney content such as videos and music. It allowed registered users to create their own personalize "channels", collect "D-points", and participate in specialized social-networking features with other users. The Muppets launched their own official Disney Xtreme Digital channels located at Muppets.com in February 2008.

The Muppet channels featured newly created web-exclusive video clips, games, polls and other gadgets. Character pages and channels include "The Muppets' Stage", "Kermit's Pad", "Miss Piggy's Dressing Room", "Fozzie's Comedy Club", "Gonzo's Stunt Show", "Pepe's King Prawn Place", and "Animal's Rockin' Room". In addition to these characters, Statler and Waldorf, Rizzo the Rat, the Rats, Beauregard, The Swedish Chef, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Beaker, and Bobo the Bear have made appearances through other videos.

The main focus of the site is on the collection of newly created video sketches produced exclusively for the DxD site. The site launched on February 1, 2008 with a collection of 10 original videos and new videos have been added weekly since. As of January 2009, there are over 100 original videos.

The initial round of videos were written by Jim Lewis and Kirk Thatcher and were directed by Bill Barretta. Jim Lewis comment on the making of the videos stating: "The goal is to provide maximum entertainment, to give new and old friends a taste of what the Muppets are all about. I personally think this is a fantastic venue for the Muppets. It's a self-contained environment. Like a sketch on a variety show (for those old enough to remember variety shows), it serves no purpose but to entertain! Here the Muppets can truly be themselves. They just do what they do when they think you’re not looking. That's been a boon to my co-writer, Kirk Thatcher, and I, but also to the performers who worked on this first round of spots. They could play and explore the characters’ personae without having to carry a story or make a certain statement.[1]"

Steve Whitmire commented on the production of the videos in a 2008 interview stating: "I love that stuff. That was kind of the first indication to me that we were in a good place with Disney. All of the sudden, we were doing that kind of stuff, those short little bits. It's a great way to reintroduce the Muppets to people who don't know them.[2]"

In 2008, Muppets.com was nominated for "Outstanding Short Form Entertainment" in the first and only ceremony of the Global Media Awards.[3]

In February 2011 the site received a slight design overhaul, the Disney Xtreme Digital features (channels and D-points) were removed and it reverted back to Muppets.com. The site was further made available internationally again, apart from the regionally restricted games section.

In May 2011, the site opened up with trailers for The Muppets.
