HI, I would like to see :
That would be cool !
Billy Joel would be awsome!!! musical guest are always cool
also Drew Carey would be nice
I always thought "Weird Al" Yankovic would be a cool guy to see with the Muppets.
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.
Blue Man Group (I know more then one but again they are a performance art group)
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)
Stump (again performance art)
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.
How about SHREK????????????
John Travolta/Olivia Newton-John (the muppets would handle that great!)
Catherine Zeta Jones
The Friends Cast (either together or seperately)
Debra Messing (Grace from W&G)
Jim Carrey (TMS- Ultimate Outline!)
Puppet versions of The Simpsons
Bert and Ernie
Bear and Tutter (and Ojo- I guess! )
...and so on!
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?
