    I can just imagine Animal as a lawer.

    Animal: Objection!
    Rowlf: Over ruled
    Animal: Over ruled? No over ruled! No over ruled! (starts to eat breifcase)

    I'm leaning more twords Scred at the moment.

    I think at one time one of the puppeteers wrote an article on the evolution of the Fraggles and went into detail about the life cycle then.

    Dick Loudin - Kermit
    Joanna Loudin - Miss Piggy
    George Utley - Beauregard (I was tempted to have George the Janitor play George because they share a name, but Bo seems to fit the personality better)
    Larry - Floyd
    Darryl #1 - Zoot
    Darryl #2 - Lips
    Michael Harris - Link Hogthrob
    Stephanie Vanderkellen - Spamela Hamderson
    Leslie Vanderkellen - Janice
    Kirk Devane - Pepe
    Chester and Jim - Statler and Waldorf

    (or maybe Dick can be played by George the Janitor, Joanna by Mildred, Stephanie by Miss Piggy, and Michael by Kermit).

    Sam - Kermit
    Diane - Miss Piggy
    Coach - Pops
    Norm - Rowlf
    Cliff - Fozzie
    Woody - Gonzo

    (or maybe Miss Piggy can play Rebecca and Miss Mousey can play Diane)

    Hawkeye - Kermit
    Trapper John - Rowlf
    BJ Hunnicut - Fozzie
    Radar - Scooter
    Klinger - Gonzo
    Hot Lips Houllihan - Miss Piggy

    (Hmmm, or maybe Gonzo can be either Trapper John or BJ, and Fozzie could be Klinger. Fozzie seems more the type who'd want out of the army, and maybe even want to cross-dress, since several old comedians wore dresses for laughs. And Sam the Eagle would play the col., not sure what his name was. Or maybe leave Kermit out of this and have Gonzo and Rizzo as the leads).

    Alex Reiger - Kermit
    Louie - JP Grosse (or Oscar the Grouch)
    Elaine - Miss Piggy
    Tony - Bobo
    Reverend Jim - Zoot
    Bobby - Fozzie
    Latka - Pepe (or the Swedish Chef)
    John - Beauregard
