Six Degrees of Kermit T. Frog

    Hey All,

    I'm sure everyone's heard of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, so I was wondering if anyone on MC had ever done a Muppet one. If you don't how to play, here's how it works:

    You have to connect a celebrity to Kermit the Frog in just 6 celebrites (and only through movies) When you solve it, you get to pick the next celebrity. For example:

    Kevin Bacon was in A Few Good Men with Tom Cruise
    Tom Cruise was in Jerry McGuire with Bonnie Hunt
    Bonnie Hunt was in A Bugs Life with Madeline Kahn
    Madeline Kahn was in History of the World part 2 with Mel Brooks
    Mel Brooks was in The Muppet Movie with
    Kermit the Frog

    So here's the next one for someone to do:

    Charlotte Rae (to make Byron happy)or Jack Lemmon
  2. Lol, funny, but I'll go with a fave of mine first:

    Lisa Kudrow was in "Romy and Michele's High School Reunion" with Mira Sorvino
    Mira Sorvino was in "Mighty Aphrodite" with Woody Allen
    Woody Allen was in "Annie Hall" with Diane Keaton
    Diane Keaton was in "Father of the Bride" with Steve Martin
    Steve Martin was in "The Muppet Movie" with
    Kermit the Frog

    :D

    Okay, now somebody do...um....Alec Baldwin.

    Alec Baldwin was in Ghost of Mississippi with Whoopie Goldburg
    Whoopie was in Rat Race with John Cleese
    John Cleese was in the Great Muppet Caper with
    Kermit the Frog!

    This is fun!

    I still Say Jack Lemmon or Tea Leoni now

    How about Brat Packer and Facts of Life season 1 cast member Molly Ringwald?

    Molly Ringwald was in Sixteen Candles with Anthony Michael Hall
    Anthony Michael Hall was in National Lampoon's Vacation with Chevy Chase
    Chevy Chase was in Foul Play with Dudley Moore
    Dudley Moore was in Arthur with Liza Minnelli
    Liza Minnelli was in The Muppets Take Manhattan with
    Kermit the Frog!

    How about FOL cast member George Clooney:

    George was in Ocean's Eleven with Julia Roberts
    Julia was in Stepmom with Susan Saradon
    Susan was in Rocky Horror Picture Show with Tim Curry
    Tim Curry was in Muppet Treasure Island with
    Kermit the Frog

    (Maybe I should have named this thread six degrees of FOL)

    Jack Lemmon

    I got this one...

    Jack Lemmon was in Grumpy Old Men with Ann Margaret
    Ann Margaret was in Bye Bye Birdie with Dick Van Dyke
    Dicka Van Dyke's wife on The Dick Van Dyke Show was Mary Tyler Moore
    Mary Tyler Moore's neighbors on the Mary Tyler Moore Show were Valerie
    Harper and Cloris Leachman
    Valerie Harper was a guest On The Muppet Show with Kermit The Frog
    or... Cloris Leachman was the secretary in The Mupet Movie with Kermit The Frog

    Oh! I can do this one!

    MuppetQuilter's cousin wrote Romy and Michele's High school reunion which starred Mira Sorvino
    Mira Sorvino was in "Mighty Aphrodite" with Woody Allen
    Woody Allen was in "Annie Hall" with Diane Keaton
    Diane Keaton was in "Father of the Bride" with Steve Martin
    Steve Martin was in "The Muppet Movie" with
    Kermit the Frog

    Now, how's this: Katharine Hepburn in four

    Katharine Hepburn was in Love Affair with Annette Bening
    Annette Bening was in RIchard III with Maggie Smith
    Maggie Smith was in Evil Under the Sun with Peter Ustinov
    Peter Ustinov was a guest on TMS and in GMC

    I can do it with all women, too:

    Katharine Hepburn was in Philadelphia Story with Virginia Weidler
    Virginia Weidler was in Babes on Broadway with Judy Garland
    Judy Garland is Liza Minnelli's mom and they performed together a bunch of times
    Liza was in MTM

    Now, do Erol Flynn

    It's funny this came up: back when the 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon was popular, I used The Muppet Movie all the time, due to the sheer number of stars in it, and it was just one step away from Kevin Bacon.

    BTW:
    Kevin Bacon was in Planes Trains & Automobiles with Steve Martin
    Steve Martin was in The Muppet Movie

    Kevin Bacon was in The Big Picture with John Cleese/ John Cleese was in GMC....

    Now to answer your question:

    Errol Flynn was in The Lady from Shanghai with Orson Wells,
    Orson Wells was in The Muppet Movie.

    Or
    Erroll Flynn was in The Sea Hawk with Claude Rains, who was in The Greatest Story Ever Told with Telly Savalas, who was in TMM


    How about John Lennon?
  10. uncleduke

    uncleduke New Member

    Yup, and he's the Waiter in The Muppet Movie. as well as the guest on TMS Audition Night episode.

    LOL at Ken!!! :)

    Jeff, you missed the obvious:

    Molly Ringwald was in Sixteen Candles with Anthony Michael Hall
    Anthony Michael Hall was in National Lampoon's Vacation with Chevy Chase
    Chevy Chase was in Follow That Bird and co-anchored (?) the news with Kermit the Frog...

    not to mention that Chevy Chase was on Saturday Night Live with frequented (for a while) King Ploobis who was performed by Jim Henson who was personal assistant to Kermit the Frog. (Will that work?)

    Glad... err Happ... uhhh-- there doesn't seem to be a safe response to this-- not on a family web site. No point in playing if you aren't gunna be safe about it. :p

    Even though Kevin Bacon has been done, I'm gonna have a go at it...

    Kevin Bacon was in Murder in the First with Bill Barretta.
    Bill Barretta was a hired hand in Muppet Treasure Island with Kermit the Frog...

    It might not count, but I don't care (usually when I play these kinds of games I make up my own rules)...

    (stuff snipped)

    I know that, Foz...but I was trying to do SIX degrees...

    Re: Jack Lemmon

    You used TV shows Matt, which hard core players would throw out. Try this:

    Jack Lemmon was in My Fellow Americans with Dan Ackroyd
    Dan Ackroyd was in Anything But Trouble and Blues Brothers, both with John Candy
    John Candy was in Follow That Bird with
    Kermit the Frog.

    Now someone do Buster Keeton (man these are getting harder and harder).

    Re: Re: Jack Lemmon

    You also could have saved a step:
    Jack Lemon was in JFK with John Candy also.

    Buster Keaton is very easy:
    Buster was in It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World with Milto Berle ~ Milton Berle was in The Muppet Movie

    How about Steve Buscemi?

    Re: Re: Re: Jack Lemmon

    Steve Buscemi was in The Hudsucker Proxy with Charles Durning
    Charles Durning was in The Muppet Movie with
    Kermit the Frog

    What about Halle Berry?
  19. Fozzie Bear

    Fozzie Bear Well-Known Member

    OOOHhhhhhh...that would make sense since that's the title of the thread, huh?

    Halle Berry?

    Halle Berry was in the Flintstones with John Goodman who performed with Rosanne who, on her talk show once, laid in bed with Kermit the Frog!

    Did I do good? I know it ain't 6 degrees, but sometimes I just can't count that high.

    Actually I think Using TV shows is a no-no....
    Also, your'e supposed to give another star for us to use!

    Lemme try:
    Halle Berry Was in Monsters Ball With Billy Bob Thornton and he was in Burn Hollywood BurnWith Eric Idle Who Was in Life Of Brian with John Cleese who was in the Great Muppet Caper!

    I'm still waiting for some one to do John Lennon
