The Muppets Present...Great Moments in American History is a live show located in the Liberty Square area at the Magic Kingdom, as part of its 45th anniversary celebrations.

The show is performed daily and features the Muppets presenting abridged accounts of notable milestones in American history, primarily from the Colonial era. The majority of the show unfolds from the second-story windows of the Heritage House, adjacent to the Hall of Presidents attraction.[2] The show premiered on October 2, 2016.[3]

The Muppets are physically performed live in the show by the park's in-house puppeteers in synchronization to a pre-recorded dialogue track. The Muppets Studio and Muppet performers Steve Whitmire, Eric Jacobson, and Dave Goelz provided consultation, as well as recording the voices for their respective characters.[4]
