If you were to recast classic sitcoms with Muppets....

    If you were to re-cast classic sitcoms with Muppets what would you do?

    Punky Brewster: Zoe as Punky, Doc as Henry

    Three's Company: Mokey as Janet, Janice as Chrissy, and Byron as Jack!

    See, it's as easy as that?

    So what would everyone else do?
     
  2. ROFL!!!!!!!

    I'm not a Muppet, but I am deeply honored! :D :) And maybe Phil and Cindy could be the Ropers, then you could Mr. Furley. LOL!

    But wait a minute---Jack never got to have anything beyond platonic fun with his roomies---dang it! :mad: :(

    *sigh*



    Oh, well...ya know, we did this on the Delphi forum and had a LOT of shows done, but it'll be fun to see some again (I cast most of mine in my college Geology class, lol).

    ------------

    Monica---Red
    Rachel---Piggy
    Phoebe---Janice
    Chandler---Boober
    Joey---Link
    Ross---Kermit<<<

    I think on the old mc there was a very long thread about the comparison i made between fraggle rock and friends.(spawned of course by that rare golden moment when chandler actually made reference to fr on an episode)

    i came up with:

    phoebe: mokey
    this one is easy as they are both in that holistic new agey artsy kind of expressionist but cutesy ditzy way

    rachel: red

    chandler: wembley

    ross: boober

    joey: gobo

    and monica...eek. cant think of any fr characters for her.

    Ugh! That would mean that Red and Boober would be married and that DOES NOT WORK in my book!

    No, no, no! Don't get me started on how Red and Gobo need to get together, ok?

    (Sorry, I get a little touchy when it comes to the what-Fraggles-are-destined-to-be-together-thing)

    Besides, Red isn't very Monica like, not many characters are like Monica. What can we say, she's one crazy girl!?

    As for my cast, I don't know, I could never picture any of them being other characters. I guess I love all the muppet characters too much.

    Though I did love that Muppet Babies episode when they all were different characters on futuristic shows like The Jetsons , Stark Trek , and Star Wars . That was too funny!

  14. But Red's more grounded than Piggy, and is crazy and zany in her own ways (Monica with neurosity, Red with athletics, lol). And no, she and Boober wouldn't get married, I was just castin' this from character likenesses.

    Course, she and Gobo would never get married, either...

    ;)

    Now don't you get me started!

    Do Fraggles even get married? I mean, there were Doozer couples and Gorg couples, but were there any Fraggle couples? How do Fraggles get born anyway? I knew that FR was a big free love hippie commune all along!
     
  16. We'll never know for sure . . .

    First of all, they don't really get married. You see, what we decided the last time we had this conversation at the old forum was that Fraggles have a much different, um, maturity growth than us humans. While we spend most of our lives as adults, they spend most of theirs as children. It's not until the end of their "cycle" (this has been referred to in many an episode) that their mature and reproduce. Of course, that's only what a group of us came up with, you don't have to believe it, heck you can make up your own answer!

    I still can't decide who would play Dan Fielding. Which Muppet could be that sleazy and likeable at the same time?

    Don't know about Sleezy, but animal was certainly in touch with his primal instincts, much like Dan, and is certainly likable.
