    After seeing the Weezer video, I started wondering
    what if your favourite band/singer was a guest on TMS ot MT, or even a possible guest artist on the new FOX series!
    Here are a few bands/artists that I would have loved to have meet The Muppets:
    • Frank Zappa
    • They Might Be Giants
    • The Beatles or John, Paul, George, or Ringo solo
    • Robyn Hitchcock
    • Pere Ubu
    • Jad Fair/Half Japanese
    • XTC
    • Legendary Pink Dots

    Who would you book as the musical act to perform with The Muppets?

    I recently saw the Debbie Harry episode and was laughing at all the punk references... Punk? Blondie? bwahahahahaah!
    This was in England in the late 70s, I would have loved to have seen the Clash or (God forgive me) the Sex Pistols.
    Animal in a comedy skit with Sid Vicious.. That's entertainment!

    Seriously, I think the envelope pushing of musical guests on the new Muppet show will be slim/none.....

    TMBG would be a good choice, especially with their new family friendly album.

    Robyn Hitchcock wouldd be great, just to see the Muppets they would create to accompany the songs, (Man With A Lightbulb Head, anyone?)

    Lou Reed and Tom Waits both have enough pg material, and are somewhat mainstream.

    Same with David Bowie and Elvis Costello.

    My favorite band would never make it, I am afraid... The Residents will not be on the Muppet Show ... (I stand a better chance of getting Buckaroo Banzai toys)

    Great "eye-dea"!

    The Residents with The Electric Mayhem! WOW!

    It seems that we share very similar musical tastes, since I am with you 100% with your "guest list".

    I always thought that Sid was well on his was to becoming a puppet, so he would have eventually ended up on TMC...if he could have found his way to the studio.

    Bowie sort of completed your request with Labyrinth. I need to find that CD one of these days.

    I am certain that Ozzy's appearance would be a >beep< laugh riot! Yet thinking of Jacko and the Muppets gang scares me. :p

    man i like this place more and more every day...

    well, considering my two favorite bands are They Might Be Giants and Big Bad Vodoo Daddy, i'd definately have to say yes to both of them.

    i'd also like to see Wierd Al, DEVO, Reel Big Fish, Mighty Blue Kings, Eric Clapton, Blues Traveler, and a special appearance by John Goodman and Dan Akroyd as the Blues Brothers

    but more than anything, i'd like to see Dr. Teeth do a duet with Dr. John.

    Billy Joel, far and away.

    Anyone remember the book and tape "Two for the Show"? Well, recall that on the second side you could record your own story. I began (but never finished) a Muppet Show with Billy Joel (done in first season style, I think, given that I did a modulation on the opening theme.) I listened to it recently, it was awful. Of course, I was four at the time and have ADD, so it makes sense that I wasn't very focused. I wasn't very talented either.

    Anyway, Billy Joel on The Muppet Show is the one thing I always wanted to see. I think a fourth season show with Dan Fogelberg would've been nice. Looking back, an episode with David Bowie would have worked.

    I dunno if it's been done, but I'd like to see the B-52s. They could do a version of "Roam if you want to" with Kermit and Piggy representing the united states, Floyd and Janice dressed as canadian mounties, Animal in a sombrero and pomcho, Johnny Fiamma and Sal in 'Rome' Italy, Pepe in a matador's outfit, Fozzie in the North Pole and Sweetums in South Africa feasting on a roast Clueless Morgan.

    Check out the posts I made about what shows with TMBG, Harry Connick Jr., and Elvis Costello might have been like! I came up with all these off the top of my head!
