The New Muppet Show Cast

    After several months of a troubled existence which I call life, I have managed to find a little time to come back. It's good to feel the thrill of comunicating with other Muppet Fans again.

    If you search Page 3 of this Thread you will find a Post I wrote TWO YEARS ago about an idea for a new show. I beg for your patience to read it and then come back here or the rest of this post will not make sense to you...

    Have you read it? Then go on, please...

    Well, since Muppet History has evolved with the last movie, the premisses of my ideal-show would have to be slightly modified - J. P. Gross had ordered a construction company to build a Mall before he died but the Muppets knew nothing about it untill it was finished - and some new characters - Joe, the Armadillo, for instance - would have to be added to the cast.

    For two whole years I completly forgot about this idea and now I feel its rush again like if I had had the idea for the first time again. Isn't it great the feeling of having a new idea? I'm feeling more or less the same...

    Now that Disney owns the Muppets (it is still hard to believe) maybe they become more receptive to new ideas... I will post the script here anyway, at least it will be fun to check your thoughts about it... If you (fans) like it, then I will try to send it to Disney...

    I have a very good idea for the first episode which I will try to write in a script-like form... Tell me what you think about:

    The Muppets Rule The Mall - Season 1 - Episode 1

    The Phantom Of The Mall

    The Muppets are making the final arregements for the grand opening of Muppet Mall. However, some strange things start happening and it looks like the Mall is haunted by a strange figure dressed in a cape and wearing a mask. Every store has weird problems, everything seems to go wrong and the Muppets start to panic and accusing each other. [Guest Star] is scared and wants to leave but Kermit tries everything to keep him/her for the opening. The rumour of the Mall being haunted has brought many more costumers than expected for the opening and when the [GS] number is about to begin, the lights go out and the Phantom of the Mall reveals himself.

    I will post the real script as soon as I finish it...

    Please, tell me what you think :D

    Blessed Be!

    PS: Can you guess who the Phantom is? It is a funny plot-twist in my opinion...

    Disney has NEVER been receptive to any ideas except their own. When I was a kid, I submitted several outlines to them for review, but they always got mailed back by a paralegal saying they do not accept submissions and have their own crew of writers, etc. They are VERY closed off from outside sources. Don't bother submitting to them unless you're already on their paycheck, because they will have a legal assistant mail it back to you with obvious folds in the top corner where they photocopied it and a letter saying they never read it.

    We will never know until we try, maybe they like the idea and choose to give me a job :D

    I will post here a script anyway... If you guys sound interested, then I will try to contact them...

    I spend way too much time thinking about this...

    Okay, might as well throw in my two cents:
    of course

    The ENTIRE Electric Mayham with actual speaking roles for a change

    Pepe--he's getting a bit over played but is a still a riot
    Sweetums, Thog and Beauregard (cause every show needs guys to do the heavy lifting)
    and I'm going to agree with the Scooter and Skeeter contingent.

    Although I tend to be very old school when it comes to any version of the muppets, I would really like to see lots of new characters too. A bit part of what made the classic show so brilliant was never knwing who, or what, was going to come around the corner. In spite of some serious wrong turns in the new character deparment, there have been some great ones as well. some new reoccuring guys would be cool, and a couple of new bands would be fantastic!

    Lisa D :excited:

    The Recommendar Of It

    In the Spongebob episode Krab Borg the Dj at Kump is a refrence of Kmup from
    Muppets Tonight and if The New Muppet Show comes it is gonna be like it.

    How do you know it's a refference? Kump is not the same as Kmup. Maybe they were oing for a different thing altogther.

    How I Know Kmup Is A Refrence

    Well the studio Kump is really a parody of Kmup from Muppets Tonight. The evidence is that the room where the Dj is talking to Mr. Krabs on the phone is like the control room from Muppets Tonight.

    Wouldn't that be like the control room of any station?

    phipp Member

    Not A Coincidence

    My opinion is that since both names are simillar and their both in a control room that this is a diliberate refrence. Other wise, this would be too much of a coincidence.

    Thank you for discussing the Muppets for me.

    I thought I was discussing them with you.

    Just seems to far fetched to me. Either way, I doubt another muppet show would be the same as MT. I also don't think another muppet show would last on TV. People just don't like them anymore.

    My New Muppet Show Cast:

    Sam the Eagle

    That's it.

    Okay, not really. But I had you going, didn't I?

    Aside from those two obvious characters, the new cast of major players should include:
    Miss Piggy
    Bunsen and Beaker (it would be nice if they got involved in more backstage action)
    Clueless Morgan
    Johnny Fiama and Sal
    The Electric Mayhem
    Statler and Waldorf

    First of all, all of the people on the smilies (possibly minus the Fraggles). Though I'd love it if all of the original Henson productions (TMS, FR, SS, BITBBH, Hoobs) came back together for one last movie. That would be great. Though I doubt we'll ever see that... sigh :rolleyes:

    My ideal cast list. Let's see.

    Kermit and Piggy
    Dr. Phil Van Neuter
    Sal and Johnny
    Dr. Teeth
    Sam the eagle for uneccessary, silly, political and moral commentary LOL
    Bunsen and Beaker
    Statler and Waldorf
    Link Hogthrob (no deep dish nine next generation bologna, except the computer 1995 plus tax was a good one)
    Scooter (he has been gone way too much)
    Andy and Randy
    The usual assortment of chickens and other strange creations....

    Come to think of it, I like them all, and if they make more it would be even better! For the new blood in the Muppets, there needs to be some more characters. But Like Bill Baretta, some of the new performers need to put more heart into their performance like he does. Some of it looks and sounds like they just want to goof off. I admit I would too, but as a performer myself (not muppet so I dont confuse anyone, I am an actor) even when I am goofing off I am putting some kind of character behind it. I have to admit that Bill has been doing a wonderful job since he joined them. Every character has a spirit about it. Especially Pepe.

    The only other reason I say that the new blood should develop their own characters instead of taking over old favorites, is what do we do 20 years down the road when all of the original performers may not be around anymore? I am not opposed to the old favorites being recast, it took me some time to accept Kermits newer voice although Steve has been doing very good. But this way there may be new favorties to carry on the tradition. ANy thoughts?
    And they should stick with the Muppet Show formula, onstage and backstage routine. It's classic and I think it still works.
