Post The Muppets do "Annie"
This is another one my Muppet-obsessed friends and I have been bouncing around. The main running gag in this one is that Miss Piggy schemes to play Annie, even though she's WAY too old for the part (although most Muppets don't have a specific age, this would imply that she's at least in her early 40's). The other big gag I was thinking about doing was having the always-smiling Dr. Teeth play Bert Healy, thus turning "You're Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile" into a jazz/fusion number. (A bit I decided to scrap, though, involved Fozzie Bear playing FDR, and constantly forgetting that he wasn't supposed to stand up, a bit I originally saw done on "The Simpsons" where Krusty the Clown is in "Sunrise at Campobello" and forgets to stay in the wheelchair.)

CAST LIST:

Annie/Prairie Dawn
Daddy Warbucks/Kermit
Ms. Hannigan/Miss Piggy
Grace/Annie Sue Pig
Rooster/Gonzo (Think about his obsession. Would you put it past him to play a character named ROOSTER?)
Lily/Janice
Sandy/Sprocket
FDR/Sam Eagle
Bundles McCloskey/Fozzie
Bert Healy/Dr. Teeth
Orphans, Hooverville-ites, New Yorkers, etc./Everyone else

So far you've done:

Little Shop with muppets.
Rent with muppets.
Annie with muppets.

It was amusing at first, and not to be bitchy, but give it a rest.

To you it may be old, but other people might still like it. Please respect those who do...if you think it's getting old, or don't like it, don't respond.

Sorry about that. Pre-"Muppet Show" Season 2 coming out on DVD this week-induced euphoria. :)

I don't know what you mean by 'furry', but if it's what I think it is...NO.

I think it would be funny to see the Muppet versions of certain shows
