    What if Fraggle Rock, Muppet Babies, and Little Muppet Monsters all had their own seperate clip montages in The Muppets: A Celebration of 30 Years, instead of just being put together in one montage of childrens programming from the Muppets?
    What if the Mupet Babies theme song was included in the Muppet Babies portion of that montage, as opposed to "I'm Gonna Always Love You?"
    What if The Muppets: A Celebration of 30 Years featured clips from Muppet Babies and Little Muppet Monsters, outside of that montage?
    What if more Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock clips were included?
    What if The Muppets: A Celebration of 30 Years featured clips from some UK spots?
    What if The Mupets: A Celebration of 30 Years included clips with the first season Fozzie and Gonzo puppets?

    Until now I didn't think about the fact that the guest star montage didn't feature any season five cold openings, as well as the fact that the guest star montage didn't include any talk spots or panel discussion sketches.

    And I forgot about two montages that I planned on asking about:

    What if the monsters, eating and explosions montage featured these clips:
    • more Little Muppet Monsters clips
    • Kermit turning into a monstrous creature (from the Alan Arkin episode)
    • Kermit biting Vincent Price after gaining vampite fangs
    • Kermit biting Grover after getting teeth
    • Fur
    • Fuzzy and Blue (and Orange)
    • a truck of monsters driving by (from the "Hey a Movie!" number from The Muppet Movie)
    • anything with the Two-Headed Monster
    • I Whistle a Happy Tune (The Muppet Show version)
    • School's Out for Summer
    • any clips from The Great Santa Claus Switch (though I'm mostly thinking that shot where the frackels say their names, plus somethign with Thig and Thog)
    • any clips of Splurge
    • Lulu's Back in Town
    • Cookie Monster eating Kermit's W
    • Cookie Monster finishing off Susan and Gordon's car
    • Cookie Monster eating the words that spell "FOOD"
    • any clip of Alistar Cookie eating his pipe
    • Statler's cigar exploding
    • The Swedish Chef finding a bomb in his cocanut
    • Crazy Harry setting off an explosion in the screening room
    • Crazy Harry holding a bomb during Kermit's introduction to a Ben Vereen number

    What if the serous moments montage included these moments:
    • When the River Meets the Sea (either version)
    • Ma Otter and Emmet Otter's jug-band combining their songs
    • One Little Star
    • What Do I Do When I'm Alone?
    • Bert showing Ernie that he's special
    • Saying Goodbye
    • Tomorrow
    • Halfway Down the Stairs
    • Let Me Be Your Song

    What if The Muppets: A Celebration of 30 Years was more of a celebration of Jim Henson, and included clips from Timepiece, The Dark Crystal, Youth '68, The Cube, and Jim Henson's Sesame Street animations and films?
    What if the Muppets had specials celebrating their tenth, fortieth, and fiftieth anniversaries?
    What if the movie montage included more than one clip (or two clips, if you count the shot of the title card) from The Muppets Take Manhattan?
    What if The Muppets: A Celebration of 30 Years included a montage of Miss Piggy karate chopping people?
    What if The Muppets: A Celebration of 30 Years included a montage of clips where characters get certain body parts removed?
    What if The Muppets: A Celebration of 30 Years included two or three additional numbers in the new footage?

    Just was thinking something random, and watching a little too many Strong Bad Emails, but:

    What if Floyd and Beaker were in the same room, at the same time, and Pepe found some Duct tape? (I bet you could see where this is going....)

    What if Pepe whacked Rowlf and Dr. Teeth with a golden record?

    What if Pepe told Kermit to stick his head into molten lava? (But Kermit refused?)

    What if Pepe told Miss Piggy to 'close her eyes and stick out her hands'?

    What if Pepe would be acting a little too much like Strong Bad?

    What if Zoot had a little too much caffine, and ended up dressing like Ziggy Stardust?
