    bad guys- I think they should be human, a Muppet bad guy wouldn't be as threatening. My ideas for actors playing bad guys are: Christopher Walken, Danny Devito, Steve Buscemi, and Joe Pesci. The outline I wrote calls for 2 bad guys, so It would probably be one scary looking guy (Walken or Buscemi) and one short guy (Devito or Pesci).

    That was good out line, have you sent it to Scooter?

    You should. I don't think that it goes in quite with the rest, but some of your scenes are really good.

    I'll e-mail you soon.

    There is going to be a human bad guy. Just with a certain mysterious twist.

    I'll send you the songs now Beau.

    Pezbalubah, send me your outline.

    hey super scooter, will this script of yours contain a lot of the electric mayhem and rowlf......say yes! pleeeeeaaaassse!! i can't stand another muppet movie without these guys as major characters. also, are the muppets playing themselves or other people?

    also, if you plan on using johnny and sal, i think they would be great as maybe entertainers in the casino, working in the casino, like doing blackjack etc, or even owning the casino where your movie will take place....just a few thoughts

    I'd have to say. right now, ROWLF is among the top ten, and, although not HUGE, the Electric Mayhem will have a major part in the final thing. We're trying to find somethig important for every character. One thing's for sure, The Electric Mayhme will be singing a song in our fianl script. I'll make sure of it.

    ok, so who all in the world of muppets will be in the film?? and don't say pepe has a huge part; he maybe funny, but is getting on my nerves like elmo.....

  7. Super Scooter

    Super Scooter Well-Known Member

    Er, right now, I'd guess Pepe has the same size part as Rowlf. I like him! Hehe:)

    PePe dosn't apear till half way through the film, and stays out of the way of the old caracters quite a bit.

    I am trying to use old caracters as much as pos.


    You will find a joint outline in your inbox.

    And your songs were good.

    I think that for the Jail song, it should be sung by Kerm, then cut to Piggy singing the same song, then cut to Electric Mayhem, then have a cut up screen with them all for the corousy parts.

    Also I have forgoten to put in the Gonzo meats Camilla part.

    I admit, the song is a bit like the one from Follow That Bird, but I don't want to make it exactly like it. I like that idea, but people would associate it too much with that. After all, they are both star songs.

    sarah_yzma, you can have a copy of the outline when we have one!:D
  11. ryhoyarbie

    ryhoyarbie Well-Known Member

    i want a copy too. i want to read it to see what you guys have wrote before you send it off to the henson people...

  12. Super Scooter

    Super Scooter Well-Known Member

    Er, okay. Could use some input.
  13. ryhoyarbie

    ryhoyarbie Well-Known Member

    hey thanks pally.....

  14. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Why? Did that happen in Follow that Bird?

    I just think it is a bit tooo long to have just Kermit staring at the stars singing it.

    YES !!! It's so much more fun !

  16. Super Scooter

    Er, sort of. Big Bird's looking up at the sky singing One Little Star, and then we see Maria singing it, then Snuffy, then all three. That was about them wishing they were all together again. The song I wrote is more about Kermit's realizaton that his life is going nowhere, that he'll never get what he always wanted. I don't know if that's what came across when I worte it, but that's what it's supposed to be about. I can make a few changes to it to bring across that realization.

    Too long? Er, what about Rainbow Connection?
  17. ryhoyarbie

    the premise of the song sounds pretty good to me. why don't you either 1. use the song, or 2. let a few people read the song and see what they think of it if it sounds like the song from follow that bird or not....just a few helpful suggestions!

  18. Super Scooter

    Super Scooter Well-Known Member

    It's not like the song from Follow That Bird except for two things. One, it's depressing
    Two, kermit's singing about stars, wondering why they exist when life's so unfair. etc. etc. etc.

    Also, the song takes place while he's staring out a window at the sky. I just think if we had them all singing it, it would be too associated with Follow That Bird.

    If you want to read it, fine. e-mail me.

    I have done some work on the ending, and I think that there won't be time to have the FIRST Muppet Show which I wanted so I've cut that out.
