    *Long sigh.

    Some good ideas in there. However, when the TMS episode outlines started popping up, I thought about a Muppet Harry Potter. The thing is I haven't thought about it till seeing this thread. However, I'd wait till we get all the books printed/published so we have all the facts and storylines before we start the casting.
    However, going on what I know of Books 1-3, here's what I came up with long ago.

    Crazy Harry Potter.
    Ernie "Ern" Weezley.
    Prairione Granger (Prairie Dawn)
    The kitten from the Marshall Grover sketch could be Crookshanks.

    Rowlf The Dog as Rowlfus J. Lupine, who turns into the werewolf.
    Fozzie Bear as Fozzius Black, who turns into a bear-dog.
    Rizzo the Rat as Rizzo Rattygrue, who turns into a three-toed rat.

    The floating head of Doc Hopper could be the face of Voldemort present in the end of Book 1, to be substituted for an illusory image of his whole being for the end of Book 2 and his own corporate self for Book 4.
    Of course, that'd mean that Rizzo would have to become his nervously willing servant and lose his hand.

    Andy and Randy as Fred and George, the twins.
    Bert as Percy.
    Originally had Janice as Jenny to recreate the bit with the Idol from the Linda Carter TMS episode at the end of Book 2, but it could be substituted for Annie Sue.
    Janice could play Sybil, then again it could be Hilda or the Gypsy Woman from the Jonathan Winters TMS episode.
    Somehow, I like the idea of Robin the Frog as Neville Longbottom.
    The Count could be Draco Malthoi, so long as the character's reworked a bit to not have him so mean as Draco, mayhaps just a more mischievously playful than mean.
    The Count's Father and Mother could do as Lucious and Narcissa Malthoi.
    Maybe we could have non-descript Pigs from TMS as the Dursleys, especially since Dudley gets turned into a runt with a pig's tail.
    Sammy the Snake, the striped one from the song "The Sound of the Letter S" could be the boa constrictor in Book 1, to be switched for Sammy the Snake the diamondback voiced by Jim Henson for the snake in the dueling club from Book 2.
    Sonny Friendly is a perfect match and was when I heard the voice of Gilderoy Lockheart the first time.

    Miscellaneous TMS Ghosts can fill the castle, along with SS and MT bats.
    Angus Magonigle, the Gargling Argyled Gargoyle as Professor Magonigle.
    Pops as Arthur Filch.
    Gaffer as Mrs. Norris.
    Sweetums as Hagred is a perfect pick.
    The Blue Dragon from FR as Nordbert the Norwegian Ridgeback from Book 1.
    Then again, maybe it'd be better to have Junior Gorg as Hagred, and then you could bring in Ma Gorg as Madam Maxine not as a love interest but someone he'd have a bond with.
    Gladys the Cafeteria Lady as Madam Rosemurta.
    Red Fraggle as one of the Griffindor Quittage beaters, maybe Angelina Johnson.
    Mokey Fraggle as Jo Chang.
    Then again, maybe it'd be better to have Mokey as Madam Sprout.
    J.P. Grosse as Cornelius Fudge.
    Gordon Robinson as Albus Dumbledor.

    The role of Severus Snape is one I'm not sure of. Because of his physical descript, it should be a perfect match for Gonzo with his hooknose and darkened fur. But I conceed that maybe it should be developed into two characters played by Statler and Waldorf.
    The King of 8 as Sir Kirduggan.
    And maybe Scooter as Cedric Diggery, that way it'd have much more sentimental impact when he's killed off in Book 4.
    Could talk about this and some other thoughts, including a spoof based on the tongue-twister Betty Botter, just LMK and I'll be glad to share.
    Hope this helps and have a good weekend.
