June 14, 2011 — Chicago, Ill. — It’s time to play the music; It’s time to light the lights; It’s time to meet the Muppets on theâ€¦Threadless Design Challenge. Threadless, the international community-driven design platform, is bringing a new T-shirt design challenge to its community of 1.5 million members to create a design that celebrates friendship. The chosen design is a precursor to the debut of Disney’s new feature film, The Muppets, coming to U.S. theaters in November 2011.
Designers can gain inspiration from the decades-long friendship of The Muppets. After more than 30 years of delivering smiles and laughter to the world, Kermit the Frog is still leading the way; Miss Piggy is still close by his side (some may say too close) and as glamorous as ever; Animal still loves his drums and the ladies; Fozzie Bear still dreams of being the world’s greatest stand-up comic bear; Gonzo is still performing his death-defying stunts; and The Electric Mayhem Band’s funky soul tracks have been serving as the soundtrack through it all.
