    Cool thread, no idea it ever existed. I'll have to do some of these.

    But to start, since I'm not in a creative mood, I'll repost a set of recasts I did for another thread on the forum:

    The Dick Van Dyke Show
    Rob Petrie - Kermit
    Laura Petrie - Miss Piggy
    Richie Petrie - Robin
    Buddy Surell - Fozzie
    Sally Rogers - Rowlf (couldn't come up with a female Muppet for the role :p)
    Mel Cooley - Sam
    Alan Brady - J.P. Grosse

    Well, if we're going with Muppet forum members, that would make me Larry. Hey, then I'd have better luck with women. :)


    Maybe that's because they already did something similar on "Muppets Tonight!" They probably should have used Kermit, Piggy, etc. for that since puppet versions of MB do really exist.

    Okay. Let me try one.

    Boy Meets World

    Cory: Kermit
    Topanga: Miss Piggy
    Shawn: Gonzo
    Eric: Fozzie
    Morgan: Annie Sue
    Mr. Feeny: Waldorf or Statler
    Mr. & Mrs. Matthews: Wayne and Wanda
    Mr. Turner: Pepe

    I won't get into the later-added characters (Jack, Rachel, etc.) now. I'll start with that, then I'll try to think up some other ideas.

    I want to see what you guys can come up with for the sitcom called "Big Bang Theory"

    I bet Bunsen & Beaker would fit in just nicely!

    Morticia Addams- Miss Piggy
    Wednesday Addams- a younger Annie Sue
    Pugsley Addams- Robin

    Cousin Itt- Beaker
    Thing- Walter's hand (I think it'd be really funny if they used a Muppet hand for thing. I mean any hand, but Walter's was the first one that kinda...came to mind)
    Ophelia Frump (Morticia's sister)- Spamela Hamderson
    Hester Frump (Morticia's mother)- Mildred Huxtetter
    Sam Hilliard (the truant officer)- Sam Eagle (What a coincidence!)

    Other possibilities:

    Animal: Cousin Itt
    Sweetums: Lurch

    Why didn't I think of Sweetums as Lurch? I think Sweetums would be a better Lurch.

    And Robin could sit next to him when he's playing the harpsichord......

    Maybe Crazy Harry's mischieviousness could be taken into consideration for Pugsley....

    Mo,
    Since Lori Beth was Richie's girlfriend/later wife ..I would have given Miss Piggy the part instead of Annie Sue (since Miss Piggy & Kermit are a couple) You sure have Fozzie pinned right for Ralph Malph though!

    (I sure do miss Happy Days since it left Hallmark Channel :sigh: )

    Yeah, I usually tend to do it based on personalities, rather than more obvious pairings. Just my way of doing things.

    And yes, Hallmark should have never taken "Happy Days" off of its schedule!

    Hmm...that does make sense with Annie Sue being Lori Beth instead of Miss Piggy .

    :mad:: WHAT?? THAT GIRL with MY frog ??

    Oh Piggy.. Relax.. it's not for REAL!!
    :mad::Better be .Because if it it's for real I'm kickin' some butt and not askin' questions!

    Yes ma'am.

    Now that I think about it, Sam the Eagle might be better as Charles Winchester. Both are quite cultural and don't get along with the others well. Sam could also make a good Frank Burns, if not for Frank's affairs with Hot Lips.
