    I think Dr. Teeth would be wonderful as the wizzard! :D

    I really like the Dr. Teeth idea. John Kennedy could carry the role well. It would feature Dr. Teeth in a unique way with a lot of dialogue throughout the movie. It would also be kind of Muppety if he appeared earlier in the film too as a different character or himself. Kind of a Muppet twist. Statler and Waldorf would be a unique twist too if they were causing trouble for all of the characters.

    You know that would be cool idea for Dr. Teeth. Why not? I like the idea for him being himself as in the Narrator and then at the last part we would see him as the Wizard. Hows that for a Dr. Teeth twist. I would also think what about some songs from the EMB from time to time. U know like say Kermit aka Scarecrow is getting down from the thing he hangs on and says I don't have a brain. Then "The EMB comes in telling Kermit it will be ok. He'll get one soon. Just fellow the "Yellow Brick Road" Hows that for a song from the EMB?

    I see Statler and Waldorf being flying Monkeys for some reason... the could be those trees that throw apples, though...

    But in the story the trees throw apples at Dorothy and Scarecrow; not rotten tomatoes at a Cowardly Lion! HA! :o

    Oh, who're we kidding? The Wizard will be some b-list actor like French Stewart.

    I really like these ideas! Dr. Teeth as the Wizard! Statler and Waldorf as Flying Monkeys! Too bad Prairie Dawn can't be Dorothy, but then again, she might be a little annoying after awhile. I guess it's REALLY too bad there are so few female Muppets who could be Dorothy. Imagine Grungetta as Dorothy for a minute... that's funny!

    That's one of the things that aggrivate me about JHC films, they do choose cameos nowadays of folks who are CURRENTLY popular, which dates the films. Bob Hope will always be famous, and so it works for him to be in TMM, and it's timeless! Hulk Hogan and his "Hoganites" in MFS is blah!

    They should consider the writing, cameos, and placements in films better.

    I could see Bunsen as the wizard, but maybe he needs a bigger role in the flim? :confused:

    Is that the guy who plays Inspecter Gadget? Yikes!

    I think it was Matthew Broderick that was the first Gadget...not sure whose doing him now. BTW French Stewart was from Third Rock From the Sun.

    Yeah, the first and second gadgets were different people.

    I think it was him in the second Gadget.

    This week's Entertainment Weekly (Fall Preview Double Issue) mentions some of the casting for this.

    Ashanti as Dorothy, Aunt Em slips my mind right now and Quentin Taratino has some cameo.
