Hey guys! Good news! Chapter one of the Super Muppets Sequel is ready to go! Here we go: Chapter 1: The Escape Our story begins in a town full of colorful characters. Or, more specifically, the city prison of a town full of colorful characters. On this particular evening, a portly security guard strolled the hallways between the cells containing the city’s worst criminals, scoundrels, and ne’er-do-wells. As he passed through one hallway, he noticed a laundress, with a large cart of laundry in tow, exiting the cell containing one Donald F. Walters, III, former CEO of Walters Bunkers, Inc, and two of his associates. The three of them had been arrested several months previously for nearly wiping out the city with giant robots. There had been a third accomplice, but he had never been found. As the security guard looked more closely at the laundress, he noticed that her skin looked very green and blobby. She must have a skin condition, he thought. The guard quickly realized that the laundress would notice him staring, and quickly diverted his gaze. She pushed the cart past the man. “Good evening, sir,” she said in a sweet, but hoarse voice. The security guard tipped his uniform hat to the blobby skinned woman. “Good evening, miss,” he replied. As the woman walked by, the guard heard a sneeze, followed by a “shut up!” He called after the laundress, “is everything all right?” The laundress turned around. “Oh yes, everything’s just fine, dear,” she rasped, rubbing under her round, pink nose. “Just a little cold.” The guard raised an eyebrow, but shrugged, and resumed his post. Once the laundress was out of sight, she pushed the cart down the hallway, out of the building through a back door, off the prison grounds, and into an alley. “Is the coast clear?” a voice from inside the laundry cart inquired. The laundress took off her wig and apron to reveal that she was no laundress at all. In fact, “she” was actually Walters’ third accomplice, Mad Monty. “Yes, sir,” he said in his normal gravelly voice. “You all can come out now.” Out of the laundry cart emerged Donald F. Walters, III, and his two arrested cohorts (come on, do they need an intro by now?). “Well done, men,” Walters whispered. “And now that we’re free, it’s time to plot our revenge against those meddling super-powered freaks!” “Boss, why are you whispering?” Polly asked. “Because we just broke out of prison, you idiot,” Walters whispered sharply. “And the legal system tends to look down on people who do that and talk about it loudly in public.” “But why do you want revenge on the Muppets?” Clueless inquired. “How about how they destroyed my million-dollar robots, took away what could have been my fortune, and ruined my career, for starters?” Walters snapped. “Oh,” Clueless said. “How do we do it?” Polly asked. “Way ahead of you guys,” Monty told them. He ran to the end of the alley. “Come on, I want to introduce you all to some people I’ve met who can help us destroy the Muppets.” Walters looked skeptical. “And you’re certain we can trust them?” “Sure we can,” Monty replied. “I put out an ad in the paper, looking for evil geniuses.” Walters rolled his eyes. “I think that might have been too subtle.” “Trust me, boss,” Monty assured him, running down the sidewalk. “Wait till you see what we’ve been working on.” Walters shook his head, but he and the other two followed Monty.
