    WOW! This looks AWESOME! Very good casting all around here. LIPS AND SPAMELA!

    Is this the first time Lips will be in a Muppet Comic?

    I LOVE the idea of Piggy as the Queen. That's brilliant. And the Mayhem as the Dwarfs? Stroke of genius. I hope Gonzo plays the Woodsman. :concern:

    And yes, Dwayne, this is the first time Lips has been in a comic.

    It was when Muppet Babies did it the first time. :)

    But I'm liking the idea of Spamela playing Snow White. Only other person I could think of who would work is Annie Sue... but I guess there could be a lot of bimbo humor that would work well in the context of the story.

    I wonder why no one thought of putting Piggy in the Snow White role, making her less than cheerful and perky. Maybe she just works better as a wicked queen. But putting a rare character in the lead role makes this one stand out. Plus, these fairy tale ones are the only real place to see Muppets Tonight characters tossed into the mix.

    I still say Johnny Fiama as Prince John was the highlight of Muppet Robin Hood.

    Oh, without a doubt. He was by far the best part. I think Spamella is good in this role... as long as they figure out some way to not make her as much of a main character. I don't really know how that would work though. Maybe they'll bulk up the prince's role?

    I don't know why but the cover color is not accurate. I have a better version of it on my blog.

    I suspect that the Prince role will get some bulking...In fact, if it's to cover a 4-story arc then I wonder if they will use the original bulkier storyline in which the Queen uses three different ways to try and kill her...including a comb, and a corset.

    Not that there HAS to be seven dwarves but the mind reels at who might take that seventh spot...Rowlf, Clifford, Scooter (the dwarf with the van), Nigel...

    Then the more fun out-there choices...Sam ("he's too GRUMPY to sit in with the rest of us..."), Pepe ("I'm not a DWARF, I'm a KING MIDGET!"), The Swedish Chef ("he's constantly in bed sneezing"...turns out he was just overexposed to pepper), a Muppet Yoko Ono...

    I am LOVING how the band looks on that cover!

    Unless, of course, he end sup appearing in Muppet King Arthur or any of the Muppet Show Comic Book issues that come before Snow White.

    Last summer I had started wondering how the casting would be doen for something like Snow White, which features both a female lead and a female villian. Miss Piggy could easily portray either role, but there aren't very many female muppets who'd be right for villianous roles (well, there are Taminella, Gladys, and Zhondra...).

    When I first saw the cover I thought Piggy was playing two roles (similar to her roles in The Muppets' Wizard of Oz). Why do all female pigs have to be blonde as well? And why does Piggy have to have had so many different hair styles?

    Anyway, I would have had Piggy play the queen (a castign choice that will be in the comic), Janice play Snow White, Floyd play Prince Charming while the rest of the band plays back-up/ drives him around, and I would have had Kermit play the leader of the dwarves.

    But I like this arrangement. It's weird that we don't get to see all seven of them.

    I'm placing my bet now. I bet there's going to be a running gag where we don't find out the identity of the seventh dwarf until the fourth installment.

    I'm thinking Clifford for the 7th. However Scooter could fill the slot. Maybe Rowlf. There's enough for a 7th.

    I'm betting on a Link or Hasslehog subplot...

    Or of course the old "We just can't afford 7 dwarfs on the payroll" joke.
  16. minor muppetz

    Either of those characters would work great as the woodsman.

    Or Sweetums could make a good woodsman.

    Or Beauregard.

    Hmm... At least in the Disney version, the woodmsan substitutes Snow White's heart with the heart of a pig... I wonder if any jokes regarding this will be put in the story (since Snow White WILL be a pig).

    I'm only really familiar with the Disney version... Are the dwarves normally named Doc, Sleepy, Grumpy, Bashful, Dopey, Sneezy, and Happy, or is that just in the Disney version? Dr. Teeth coul obviously be Doc, and Zoot can be sleepy... But maybe Animal can be called Hungry, and either Floyd or Janice could be called Groovy.

    Disney's version was the first time they were named.

    To me, Lips looks like Sleepy (since his eyes are always shut!) But usually they are given other names in non-Disney versions of the story.

    This one also to me looks a little more colorful then the others. They where kind of darker stroies so this should be an interesting sieries.

    There will be open auditions held for our seventh dwarf.

    And as for Spamela being the main character... c'mon, do you really think Piggy will allow that?
