ZootyCutie's Muppet Show Outline-Homestar Runner

    I thought it would be a fun idea to see what would happen if Homestar Runner was a guest on The Muppet Show. And, I know that Homestar was created in modern days. Also, this is in Season 5 episode style.

    Cold Opening
    Pops asks Homestar who he is. Problem is, Homestar forgets who he is!

    Theme Song
    Gonzo's horn plays the first few notes of the Homestar Runner Theme.

    Intro
    Kermit introduces Homestar as an athelete that everyone loves. But first, he introduces the Electric Mayhem.

    Song-A Tribute to Homestar Runner
    The Mayhem plays the song that honors the no-armed white dude. Floyd gets main vocals and Animal screams "everybody" and "Homestar, Run".

    Balcony
    Statler: So Waldorf, does he heal your broken heart?
    Waldorf: Heck, he couldn't even heal my heart attacks!
    (They laugh.)

    Backstage
    As the band comes in, Fozzie tells Kermit that he finds Homestar to be an idol of his. He finds him funny, witty and oblivious to the bad stuff around him. Something that Kermit thinks the opposite of Fozzie.

    Muppet Newsflash
    Recent studies show that now desks are being made of a mix of breakaway wood and glass. The Newsman doesn't beleive it and slams his papers onto the table, causing it to break.

    Dressing Room
    Homestar has fun trying on the costumes of the Muppets. That is of course, until he gets stuck in one of Miss Piggy's dresses.

    Swedish Chef
    The Swedish Chef makes a batch of Sudzu(Gummy bears in a glass of skim milk). Everything goes fine, until a swarm of Muppet The Cheats attack him for it.

    UK skit
    Rowlf plays the piano while Lips plays the trumpet. They do a duet on Down by the Riverside.

    Fozzie's Monolouge
    Fozzie gets Homestar's help to get back on Statler and Waldorf by saying how he knows someone worse than them: Strong Bad.

    Closing Number- All Star
    Homestar sings while the Electric Mayhem plays the song, all in costumes of the other main Homestar Runner characters.

    Ending/ Goodnights
    Homestar and Kermit are joined by Fozzie, Animal, Zoot and one of the Muppet The Cheats.

    Ending Balcony Comment
    Statler: You know, I've been thinking that I'd like that Strong Bad.
    Waldorf: Why bother, your just like him!
    (Waldorf laughs)

    So, what do you think?

    Well... It needs work. Perhaps you should dig around the FanFic section of the forum and read through some of the outlines for TMS episodes posted by fellow forum member Gorgon Heap. You could even contact him and seek his help in developing this outline further.

    Hope this helps, have a good day.

    I don't read fanfics normally but I love Homestar runner! It's a really cute idea. :) Welcome to the forum!
  4. ZootyCutie

    ZootyCutie Member

    Yeah, this is my first time doing it.

    Thanks! Homestar is basically the next best thing to Muppets in my opinion.:)

    You did very well for a first attempt. :)

    Keep working on your skills. Practice makes perfect. :D

    It's a cutzy little idea for a Muppet Show episode. Some cool, fun stuff.

    Am I the only one who imagined this whole episode in Homestar Runner animation style? And read it in his voice?
  7. ZootyCutie

    ZootyCutie Member

    I was thinking of full scripting some of the parts, and all I need is requests of which part that you would want, though I couldn't do the UK skit, since it is an instrumentral number.

    minor muppetz Well-Known Member

    I like Muppets, I like Homestar Runner, and I like this fan fic. Though it seems a bit short in the last half (after the UK skit).
  9. Bill Bubble Guy

    Bill Bubble Guy Active Member

    How about having a go at Fozzie's Monologue?
    I bet you could make a very funny script.:D
  10. ZootyCutie

    ZootyCutie Member

    Okay Bill Bubble Guy, here it is!

    Kermit: Hey, all you Muppets out there! It's time now for the crazy comedy clown himself: Fozzie Bear!
    (Fozzie's theme plays)

    Fozzie: Thank you, thank you, thank you! Oh, you are the best audience yet!

    Statler: Yeah, and their the best you will ever get!
    (Both laugh.)

    Fozzie: Hey, come on guys! One of my idols is here!

    Waldorf: Oh, no wonder your jokes are as cold as stone.
    (They laugh)

    Fozzie:But, I-
    (Homestar comes in.)

    Homestar: Hey Fozzie!

    Fozzie: Oh, hi Homestar.

    Homestar: What's wrong? You were full of life backstage.

    Fozzie: Well, you see those guys, they always heckle my perfomance.

    Homestar: I think I can help.

    Fozzie: Really?

    Homestar: Yep. *to the balcony* Hey, you think your so tough? I know someone tougher than you!

    Statler: Oh really, is it a steak?
    (They laugh.)

    Homestar: No, it is Strong Bad. Hey Strong Bad, come out here!

    Strong Bad: Shut it Dumbstar. I was checking an email and stealing your cow lamp in the dressing room. What do you want?

    Homestar: I want you to meet some peoples.

    Strong Bad: Why you lazy crap for crap. If its those geezers in the balcony tell them to soak their heads. *leaves stage* And quit borrowing my fondue pot!

    Fozzie: You heard him. Go soak your heads.*audience laughs* Wow! I've never been funnier!

    Homestar: All right! Lets celebrate with marshmallows!
    (Fozzie's theme)

    Statler: W-what just happened?

    Waldorf: We just got heckled.
  11. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Oh! You did great! Nice original puns back from those two guys in the balcony, and totally in character Strong Bad badness!

    Totally my favorite line!

    Cow lamp? *laughs!* Why oh why? Totally random and hilarious.
  12. minor muppetz

    minor muppetz Well-Known Member

    That was funny.
  13. Bill Bubble Guy

    Bill Bubble Guy Active Member

    That sure was funny. Only thing that detracted from its plausibility ever so slightly is the use of the word crap.
    I'm not criticizing you for using the word Zooty but Jim and his team would never have ever used such a word on a real Muppet Show Episode. It just didn't feel like their exact personal style.
    But please understand I am not having a go at you in any way whatsoever. And I really do love your script. :)
  14. minor muppetz

    minor muppetz Well-Known Member

    In your mind, do you imagine the Homestar Runner cast to be animated or puppets? I know that some of the characters have appeared as puppets before.
  15. ZootyCutie

    ZootyCutie Member

    I thought it would be fun to see them animated, with the Muppets animated as well.
  16. ZootyCutie

    ZootyCutie Member

    Right, sorry. Its just that crap is Strong Bad's favorite word. Sorry if anything bothered you about it.:o
  17. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Don't worry about it. For Strong Bad, that was totally in character. If this was a Muppet Show Episode appearing on the site, animated, it would have been fine and in character.

    If Strong Bad was appearing on TMS, they'd have toned it down, that's all.

    I decided to script a Veterinarian's Hospital, even though I didn't add it onto my outline.

    Announcer: And now it's time for Veterinarian's Hospital. The continuing stooory of a quack, whose gone to the dogs.
    (Rowlf is in the hospital bed, like in the Christopher Reed episode)

    Rowlf: Hey, what am I doing here again?

    Miss Piggy: We thought it would be more sutible with the guest star for you to lay down, before I do any real damage to you.

    Rowlf: Well, how can the replacement doctor even do anything? He doesn't even have arms!

    Janice: Like, we rully came up with a solution for that!
    (Strong Bad enters, in doctor scrubs)

    Strong Bad: Why hello girls, you are lookin' good tonight.

    Rowlf: Hey, what about me?

    Strong Bad: Man, your worse than Homsar, and that's sayin' somethin'.
    (All but Rowlf laugh)

    Janice: So Dr. Bad, should we like, give him a physical?

    Strong Bad: I think we should be gettin' physical. Ya wanna first base it with me in the lounge?
    (Piggy and Rowlf groan)

    Janice: Like I would, but there is something keeping me from it.

    Strong Bad: Oh, and what is that?

    Janice: The fact that Floyd can here what we say.
    (Cut to another part in the hospital room. Floyd has on a medical gown and has his right leg hanging on a sling with a makeshift cast on.)

    Floyd: Man, if I wasn't all bruised up from that dress caper, I would be kicking your keyster back to Free Country!
    (All but Floyd and Strong Bad laugh)

    Announcer: So Dr. Bad really does have a keyster. Tune in next time to here Nurse Piggy say:

    Miss Piggy: Dr. Bad, I'm open. You want to catch dinner and a movie?

    Strong Bad: Sure, ya wanna see Pigcago or The Karate Pig?
    (Floyd, Janice and Rowlf laugh while Miss Piggy beats the everloving snot out of Strong Bad.)

    Okay, I had rully a lot of fun writing this!
  19. ZootyCutie

    ZootyCutie Member

    If anyone was wondering what "the dress caper" was, I'll script it.

    (Homestar is in the dressing room, finishing off a glass of Mountain Dew.)

    Homestar: That was very pleasing. I wonder what's in the dressing room's closet.
    (Opens it up and finds costumes that the Muppets wear.)

    Homestar: This will be fun!
    (Homestar goes into the closet and in a few seconds, comes back out wearing a green t-shirt and 11-point collar.)

    Homestar: Hi-ho! Welcome to the Muppet Show!
    (Leaves off-screen and comes back wearing a black and yellow checkered tux.)

    Homestar: And now, I, The Great Gonzo, will eat this rubber tire to the Flight of the Bumblebee!
    (Goes through a montage of Homestar trying on costumes of Fozzie, Floyd, Dr. Teeth, Lips, Zoot and ending in Miss Piggy's dress.)

    Homestar: *still in dress* Boy, that was fun! Well, I better get back into my normal outfit.
    (Tries to pull off the dress, but is stuck.)

    Homestar: Uh-oh. Calm, Homestar Runner, just breath in and the dress will come off.
    (Sucks his breath in and pulls, dress still won't come off.)

    Homestar: This does not look good for Homestar Runner. HEEEEEEEEELP!
    (Floyd opens up, well more like slams open, the door.)

    Floyd: Hey man, what you yellin' for, and why you in Miss Fatback's dress?

    Homestar: Well, I found some costumes, and I tried them on. Then, I got stuck in Miss Piggy's dress. Can you help me get it off?

    Floyd: Sure man, I wouldn't want the pork princess busting your butt.
    (Homestar "grabs" onto the chair by the table, while Floyd pulls onto the bottom of the dress. on accedent, Homestar flings his legs back, sending Floyd quickly hurtiling into the wall, right leg first.)

    Homestar: Oh wait. I forgot to unzip the zipper! Thank's for your help Floyd!
    (leaves room)

    Floyd:*weakly* Medic!
