  2. Sesame Street Season 49
    Sesame Street's 49th season officially began Saturday November 17 on HBO. After you see the new episodes, post here and let us know your thoughts.

The Return of "Muppet What-Ifs?"

Discussion in 'Games' started by Philip Kippel, Jul 17, 2002.

  1. After some thought, I thought it would be fun to revive the "Muppet What-Ifs" that we used to do. To start, I have a few:

    What if Kermit fell in love with the REAL Lady Holiday? (Hee, hee, hee)
    What if "The Rhyming Song" rhymed?
    What if "Fraggle Rock" was "Doozer Rock"?
    What if the Gorgs went into "Outer Space"? (Uh, oh)
    What if Uncle Travelling Matt went into the "other" Outer-Space?
    What if Beaker said "You, you, you" instead of "Me, me, me"?
    What if Hilda stayed on "The Muppet Show" after the first season?
    What if the Fraggles loved to work?
    What if the Doozers loved to play?
    What if Dr. Teeth couldn't play the keys?
    What if Animal couldn't play the drums?
    What if Janice couldn't play the guitar?
    What if Floyd couldn't play the bass?
    What if Zoot couldn't play the sax?
    What if Lips couldn't play the trumpet?
    What if the Electric Mayhem broke up?
    What if the "Traveling Musicians" DID become Traveling Musicians?
    What if Melora DIDN'T kiss Robin?
    What if Big Mean Carl was "Big Friendly Carl"?

    Any others? Feel free to share them.

    What if "Muppets Tonight" was still on the air?
    What if Muppet Central had an official relationship with The Jim Henson Company?
    What if Odyssey was still part-owned by Henson?
    What if there WAS a 24-hour Henson network?
    What if Jim Henson did buy Walt Disney Productions in the '80s?
    What if there WERE sequels to "The Dark Crystal" and "Labyrinth?"
    What if another rock band did a video with the Muppets?
    What if EM.TV never ran into financial turmoil?
    What if Oscar was still orange?
    What if Snuffy was still unseen? (That'd be annoying.)

    That's all I got.

    What if Jim Henson didn't name his puppets "Muppets?"

    To Ernie101: "Bert is Evil."

    Nope, he means it just the way he said it. Henson was a contender for the Mouse House until Roy Disney, Stanley Gold and the Bass Brothers stepped up to bat. Bernie Brillstein began petitioning interest a little too late. This was all covered in an article at LaughingPlace.

    Alright, I came across this last night and thaught it might be fun to bump up. Kev, if you or any other mod sees this, I think it might be a good idea to move it to the games section. Up to you, of course.

    What if Jerry Juhl was still alive and writing?
    What if some of the lesser-seen muppets had bigger parts in the movies?

    What if Doc Holiday had actually be moved by Kermit's speech at the end of TMM? (To be honest, I've always wondered that!)

    What if Miss Piggy really did get her own TV series? (See The Fantastic Miss Piggy Show special)

    What is Scooter got contacts?

    What if the Swedish Chef learnt how to speak English?

    What if Crazy Harry had psychiatric therapy and was completely cured?

    What if Statler and Waldorf had actually stayed away from the show since they honestly hated it so much?

    What if Scooter really was a member of the gopher species?

    lol I never even realized you had the name wrong heralde.

    But Doc Holiday is such an easy mistake to make though I'm not exactly sure where the name originally came from.
    And the villian in TGMC was Nicky Holiday. I wonder if it's just a coincidence or whether the Muppeteers were punning Doc Holiday indirectly remembering the villian from the first movie. ;)

    Ahahahaha! I saw "Doc Holiday" and I was like DOC HOLIDAY AND THE MUPPETS?!?!?!? AWESOME!!!! So, :p ! Burst my bubble.........

    Doc Holiday was a friend of the Earp brothers (Wyatt, Virgil, and Morgan), who all fought at the OK Corral. They've been portrayed countless times in movies, tv, etc. But the best was in the movie Tombstone, where he was played by Val Kilmer.

    Yeah, I had a feeling that was the case. Only someone like me would pull the Earps Doc Holiday out of nowhere like that. :)

    more lol. :D

    Thank you for clearing up where the name came from Beakerfan.
    I knew it was familiar to me and like you said heralde no wonder it seemed right at the time.

    Incidentally I love your current signature. I must remember whenever life seems to get me down that I am bionically empowered by Jesus. :D
