Which Fraggle characters would work well on The Muppet Show?

Discussion in 'Fraggle Rock' started by TravellingMatt, Sep 30, 2002.

    I personally think the following would work:

    Boober (his comic possibilities would be endless. I could see him as a recurring patient on Vet's Hospital, and predicting doom and gloom backstage)

    Mokey (She and Janice would get along famously, resulting in more comic mishaps for Floyd, such as his having to care for Lanford AND keep an eye on Animal at the same time.)

    Convincing John (This guy would truly be a menace backstage. I could see him as Fozzie's agent, or trying to con Kermit into going out to dinner with Miss Piggy...or being hired by Kermit to finally get Scooter to quit with the "My uncle owns the theatre" bit.)

    I think that Wembley would work so well on The Muppet Show, With all his Wemblin' he would make everyone so nervous on stage.

    I just know him and Fozzie would work well !

    See ya

    Here's the Vet's Hospital skit I wrote with Boober as the patient.

    ANNOUNCER: It's time once again for "Veterinarian's Hospital", the continuing story of a quack who's gone to the dogs...

    JANICE: Here's the next patient, Dr. Bob!

    (Rowlf pulls back the sheet to reveal a quivering Boober Fraggle)

    ROWLF: I immediately diagnose no more Elvis Presley records for this patient!

    PIGGY: Why, Dr. Bob?

    ROWLF: Look at him, he's all shook up!

    BOOBER: Do you mind? (produces a long sheet of paper) This is the list of all the diseases I have.

    ROWLF: Well, I'll be! Someone who's sicker than the writers of this sketch!

    BOOBER: COME ON! I'M REALLY SICK HERE! What kind of a doctor are you, anyway?

    ROWLF: What kind do you want me to be?

    PIGGY: I've wanted him to be a GOOD doctor for years, but nooooo...

    ROWLF: According to your charts, you're in perfect physical condition. However, your mental health is what I'm worried about.

    JANICE: Why, Dr. Bob?

    ROWLF: He agreed to do this sketch with us!

    ANNOUNCER: And so Dr. Bob has come to grips with the fact that he's one sick puppy. Tune in next time when you'll hear Nurse Piggy say...

    PIGGY: The writers of this sketch must eat a lot of pretzels.

    ROWLF: Why do you say that?

    PIGGY: Well, you are what you eat, and anyone who writes this sketch is pretty TWISTED!

    Well, although I don't think Cantus would be a good perminent character on the show, I do think that the Minstrels would be one heckuva guest act!

    Kermit: So uh, Cantus, what song will the Minstrels be playing for us tonight?

    Cantus: Speak not, young frog, for when the time has come, you shall know.

    Kermit: Oh...um, okay...

    [Yes I know that Cantus and Kermit would be a stretch being Jim voiced them both! Don't try to act smarter than oh might Matt!! :D]

    Sometimes on The Mupept Show there have been about Four Jim Muppets in the same scene.

    See ya

    I have thought Fraggles would work well on the show...and they could go in and out of the theater/in and out of Fraggle Rock whenever they wanted to, through a Fraggle hole in the backstage area...

    Re: Matt,

    - Boober!!! I so agree on Boober!!!
    - Travelling Matt. He'd be like a reporter.
    - Convincing John. Indeed, something like an agent or a coach or whatever. Just another energetic Jim Henson kinda guy.

    Convincing John would be AWESOME on TMS!

    "Um, Zoot, why are you guys all dressed in leiderhousen?"

    "We talked to Convincing John man. He told us the wonders of Polka, man..."

    :D Wooo!!
