Well, The Muppet Show is celebrating 40 years this year. So, I'm gonna do another TMS fanfic, but THIS time, it's gonna be me who's the guest star. Chapter 1: Beginnings It's been a rough year for me. My grandfather, Jim Shifflett, who incidentally will be 80 next May, was in the hospital last June. School was stressing me out. And who helped me through those times? The Muppets, of course! They've always been there for me in tough times. So, one day, I'm just relaxing in my living room, or what I call my studio, and I get this strange phone call. Of course my mom answers it just like she answers every other phone call. "Matt, it's for you" Mom said. "Oh goodie a phone call for me for once." I thought to myself. "Hello?" "Hi Ho there, Matt" The voice said. "K-Kermit? Is that you?" I said. "Why yes it is! How did you know?" "Trust me, I recognize that voice." "Glad you do. Well, I've heard a lot about your story." "Oh you have." "Why yes. Your mother told me all about it." "Being the sweet mother that she is. So, what's up?" "Well, I wanted to know if you would like to guest star on The Muppet Show" I just stood there shocked. "Why Kermit, I-I never thought you'd ask. I'd love to!" "Fantastic! Now, do you have any talents? "Why yes I do." "And they are?" "Acting and singing." "Oh, so you're an actor?" "Yes." "Any big productions you're doing right now?" "No. Just doing school plays for now." "Gotta start somewhere." "True." "Now, last question. Is there anyone you'd like to do a scene with?" Again, I was shocked. "No doubt. Miss Piggy, please." "Alright, Miss Piggy it is." "Well, Mr. Bingel. It was nice talking to ya and I can't wait to see ya when you come out here." "Can't wait to see ya." "Alrighty, goodbye now." "Bye Kermit." Once, I hung up, I cried tears of joy because this is what I dreamed of for years. Look out LA, here I come! END OF CHAPTER 1 That's the beginning. Chapter 2 coming later in the week.
