    YOU SAID IT!!! Yes! I was just thinking about this at work a few days ago, we have been talking about the Dennis the Mennis movie and have been repeating quotes from it....

    George: " Ohhh Gunther!! I''ve got your father on the phone, he says he want's to take you to the ICE CREAM store!

    Gunther: *GASPS, then runs home*

    Martha: Oh George, now he's going to be so disipointed when he gets home.

    George: Life's full of disipointment's Martha....

    LOL! We have a guy at the pizza place with the name "Gunther" so we've been teazing him with the name and when calling him we go " Ohhh Gunther!!!

    Walter Matthau was a great actor, i miss him as the same for Jack Lemon :cry: :sympathy:

    Zack) Rowlf the, He wants to take you to thee Ice cream store!!!.... okay! sorry! ...We should all bow down to Sarah, ya know this get's kinda hard after a while;) Dog.

    Those are prolly the best choices. Queen Latifah is going to be in "Muppet Wizard of OZ" as Aunt Em, and Ozzy's performed with the Muppets a few times. ("Born to Be Wild" with Miss Piggy, appearing with Kermit at Queen Elizabeth's Golden Jubilee.)

    Well, I wrote outlines for most of the people from "Van Helsing"...except I just couldn't think of a plotline for Shuler Hensley. (He was in the broadway revival of "Oklahoma!" as well...I just want to see him and Kermit duet on "The Ballad of Judd Fry"...my favorite part of the musical)

    On the subject of other musical actors, I would like to see Kristin Chenowith (I know she's also on Sesame Street) and Patrick Wilson. (Also in "Oklahoma" and the movie version of "Phantom")

    Ok have to say those that I would like to see; well first I have to think of the Muppet Show. I don't know of any full bands that have ever done the show single artist yes, but not a group. The only groups I know were performance artists, and then the Star Wars episode what was more around Mark Hamil. I don't know what they did with Muppets Tonight I wasn't a fan of that series at all. Also we need to have some more unique performance groups again; I would hope some of the shows they would do would be from people we never heard of or up and coming artists.

    Weird Al
    Wayne Brady
    Will Smith
    Nicole Kidman
    Eddie Murphy
    Blue Man Group (I know more then one but again they are a performance art group)
    Steve Irwin
    Gwen Steffani
    Queen Latifah
    Seth Green (I am for sure he would do it, says it was SS that got him into acting)
    Cyndi Lauper (with her new style of singing more of a classic style)
    Eric Idle
    Christopher Watkins
    Stump (again performance art)
    Tim Allen
    Shania Twain
    Olsen Twins (though they say they want to work on separate stuff, the show could be them each doing their own skits and singing alone, the other not knowing they are there, and at the end a duet surprise.)

    Sadly I know one for sure that will be on it, but don't want them Jessica Simpson. The only way that be a good show if it Crazy Harry blew her up.

    Gonzo's Goof :concern:

    Nicole Kidman
    Tom Hanks
    Catherine Zeta Jones
    Renee Zellwegger
    Hugh Grant
    Jack Black
    Will Young
    Anne Robinson

    I've got a pretty long list, but here are some celebs that I really would have liked to have seen on TMS:

    Robert Morse: He originated the role of J. Pierrpont Finch in the Broadway version of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, and reprised the role for the film version. He's done some other work in musicals such as Sugar and portrayed Truman Capote in the one-man show Tru, and in recent years has done a bunch of cartoon voiceover work including some of those Rankin/Bass holiday specials.

    Roddy McDowall: Roddy was no stranger to television during the Muppet Show's run; he was one of the stars on the short-lived Planet of the Apes television series and he guest starred on the Carol Burnett show on several occasions. Although better known for his dramatic roles, Roddy was a decent comic actor and probably would have been able to pull off an appearance on TMS very well. I could definately see his talent for accents being utilized.

    Tom Baker: The fourth incarnation of the Doctor on Doctor Who. His run as the Doctor coincided very closely to the Muppet Show's series run; he was on two years longer (1974 - 1980). I could see a TMS episode with Tom going with Tom as himself as the guest or with the Doctor being mistaken for Tom and going on in his place.

    Vicki Lawrence: Not much to say here except I can see Mama popping up in a sketch somewhere, can't you?
