What if Gonzo was an Anteater?
These may have already been said but:
What if Cookie Monster still had teeth?
What if the Swedish Chef was French?
What if Sam was a weirdo?
What if Beaker never got hurt in the Muppet Labs sketches?
What if Boober was as daring as Sidebottom?
What if Rowlf the Dog never appeared after the Jimmy Dean Show?
What if Big Bird wasn't big?
What if Lips, Marvin Suggs, and Marvin's Muppaphone did an album together and they'd call it, "Marvin and Lips Unplugged"?
What if it really was easy being green?
What if the Count didn't count?
What if Oscar was a nice person?
What if Janice kept on dating Zoot?
What if Scooter drove a real scooter?
What if Junior Gorg at a Fraggle on the show?
What if there were more than just the three main Gorgs?
What if Oscar the Grouch's trash can accidentally got thrown out on Trash Day? (wait, that might actually be a plotline on one of the classic Sesame Street episodes.)
What if Pepe was originally on the Muppet Show?
What if Fozzie's jokes were funny?
What if Cookie Monster, Rizzo and Animal went on Celebrity Fit Club together?
(Not that I would normally watch that, but I'd make an exception for The Muppets)
What if Large Marvin was on the Biggest Loser?
What if Bear lived in a big RED house?
What if Beaker could speak like the rest of the gang instead of using meeps?
What if The Electric Mayhem had performed at the Super Bowl halftime?
What if Waldo C. Graphic went to Fraggle Rock?
The show would have been WAY better!
What if Guy Smiley had been named Girl Frowny?
What if Uncle Traveling Matt never went to Outer Space?
What if Zoot wasn't sleepy all the time?
What if Cookie Monster was REALLY the Veggie Monster?
What if Bunsen had never brought in Beaker as his assistant?
What if Crazy Harry never set off bombs?
Then everyone in my school would be right! I hate those rumors so much.
What if Cookie Monster had a split personality like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and went alternately from being the Veggie Monster to the Cookie Monster?
What if Fozzie and Kermit were really twins in GMC?
What if Beaker could say anything else besides "meep"?
What if Beaker was the scientist and Bunsen was his assistant?
What if Sidebottom was the fifth Fraggle and his alternate personality was Boober?
What if Gobo was afraid of "outer space" and couldn't get the postcards from his uncle?
What if Red Fraggle was blue?
What if Kermit never became a frog?
What if Herry Monster wasn't obscure anymore?
What if Pepe really was a shrimp and not a king prawn?
What if Pepe would just admit he's a shrimp!
What if Disney decided to let go of the Muppets?
What if Henson Productions was its own studio?
What if the slipper did not fit Hey Cinderella?
What if Sam the Eagle was funny too?
What if Sam the Eagle was (GASP!) not American?
- What? How dare you! You take that back right this instant. I'll have you know I am dyed in the wool, red, white and true blue! I am, after all, the national bird of the United States of America!
Me: Okay, Sam- take it easy. I know you're still a patriotic American. This is just a game of imagining "what if" - that's all.
- Oh- well, in that case I'll add one. What if I had more normal, decent people (like Wayne and Wanda!) to work with instead of being surrounded by all these weirdoes?
Me: Look at it this way, Sam- someone has to keep them in line.
- The sacrifices I make...
What if Ernie was the boring one?
What if Gonzo didn't have a hooked nose?
What if Super Grover wasn't helpful? (Wait... he already isn't helpful.)
Beakerboy: You are actually helpful... sometimes... At least you try!
What if Gonzo didn't date Camilla?
What if all the Muppets gang had made to Broadway "by tomorrow" as Fozzie said at the start of the movie?
(okay, so we'd have a really short and pretty lame movie. I mean- no conflict means no plot. The Muppets go to Manhattan and make it to Broadway first thing with no trouble! Yay! Great movie.)
(to continue with this thought) What if Dr. Bunsen Honeydew created a translator in Muppet Labs to be able to understand Beaker?
What if there were other planets besides Koozebane on The Muppet Show?
What if Beaker ran Muppet Labs and Dr. Honeydew was his assistant?
What if the Newsman had a co-anchor?
What if Miss Piggy and Link Hogthrob were married and had children? What if Dr. Strangepork was Link's best man?
What if The Electric Mayhem had their own talk panel show on MTV?
What if the The Electric Mayhem rode in a Volkswagen Bus instead?
What if Gonzo finally has a nose job?
What if Gonzo hosted a reality show & the contestants performed stunts the way Gonzo would(a la Fear Factor)?
What if Hoggle at the peach, instead of giving it to Sarah?
What if every season of The Muppet Show, Kermit auditioned new acts to replace some of the acts that weren't working out?
What if The Swedish Chef had an assistant to help him, like Janice?
What if there was a muppet version of Survivor or The Dating Game?
What if Oscar learned about recycling?
What if the Swedish Chef went to culinary school?
What if everyone on The Muppet Show spoke in Meeps and only Beaker spoke normally?
What if Sherlock Hemlock had made a cameo in "Muppet Sherlock Holmes"? (Okay, I know that was focusing on The Muppet Show gang and they may not have had the rights and all- but that would've rocked!)
What if the Fraggle Rock gang met the Dinosaurs gang?
