Some thoughts on Muppet Treasure Island

    True, Animal doesn't get anything going on in this movie...They're just there for the music, and never get involved in politics!

    Suddenly I wonder if Fozzie would have worked well as Fred instead of Fezziwig. I know he was given that role because of the name similarity, but if Fezziwig had a different-sounding name, I think they could have had Fozzie play Fred (it'd give Fozzie a bigger role), and maybe Sam could have been Fezziwig instead of Scrooge's teacher (I think The Muppet Christmas Carol is the only version of the story to have such a prominient school scene).

    :o Actually I just caught that part just now. That made me smile and go whoops at the sametime. :laugh:

    Yeah, but the Electric Mayhem didn't have much going for them in MCC either, but at least we got a Lips cameo in that one.

    I think it would have been hard to give The Electric Mayhem big parts in The Muppet Christmas Carol and Muppet Treasure Island. Are there any classic stories out there with roles that can easily be filled by The Electric Mayhem (I know, they were among the stars of Muppet Snow White, though they're a dwarf short.... But if Muppet Snow White was a movie they'd probably have more major characters as the Dwarfs and a human actress as Snow White)?

    Yeah, and Statler and Waldorf could share the role of Grumpy!

    I don't think Robin has the personality. Imagine Robin in a fighting scene…
    The advantage of human cast is they can have any personality you want, but it doesn't work for Muppets.

    Really? I really like his singing voice. It reminds me of my own singing voice.
