Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl will make a cameo in an upcoming episode of The Muppets.

Jim Henson's much-loved kids show returned in September, with a new 'contemporary, documentary-style show' airing on US network ABC.

Having made his first appearance in The Muppets' 2011 film, starring as Animal's replacement drummer in The Moopets band, Grohl will now feature in an episode titled 'Going, Going, Gonzo', which will be broadcast on December 1.

Variety reports that the episode will see Grohl "challenge Animal to a drum-off". Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt will also appear in the episode.

The new Muppets series is being steered by Bill Prady, co-creator of The Big Bang Theory, and Bob Kushell, formerly an executive producer on 3rd Rock From The Sun. Prady is a longtime Muppets writer who scripted the 1990 TV special The Muppets Celebrate Jim Henson.

Characters Kermit and Miss Piggy recently announced that they are no longer romantically involved in the new series, though they reassured fans that they will "continue to work together on television and in all media now known or hereafter devised, in perpetuity, throughout the universe".
