The Return of "Muppet What-Ifs?"


Philip Kippel

After some thought, I thought it would be fun to revive the "Muppet What-Ifs" that we used to do. To start, I have a few:

What if Kermit fell in love with the REAL Lady Holiday? (Hee, hee, hee)
What if "The Rhyming Song" rhymed?
What if "Fraggle Rock" was "Doozer Rock"?
What if the Gorgs went into "Outer Space"? (Uh, oh)
What if Uncle Travelling Matt went into the "other" Outer-Space?
What if Beaker said "You, you, you" instead of "Me, me, me"?
What if Hilda stayed on "The Muppet Show" after the first season?
What if the Fraggles loved to work?
What if the Doozers loved to play?
What if Dr. Teeth couldn't play the keys?
What if Animal couldn't play the drums?
What if Janice couldn't play the guitar?
What if Floyd couldn't play the bass?
What if Zoot couldn't play the sax?
What if Lips couldn't play the trumpet?
What if the Electric Mayhem broke up?
What if the "Traveling Musicians" DID become Traveling Musicians?
What if Melora DIDN'T kiss Robin?
What if Big Mean Carl was "Big Friendly Carl"?

Any others? Feel free to share them.

Nope, he means it just the way he said it. Henson was a contender for the Mouse House until Roy Disney, Stanley Gold and the Bass Brothers stepped up to bat. Bernie Brillstein began petitioning interest a little too late. This was all covered in an article at LaughingPlace.

Alright, I came across this last night and thaught it might be fun to bump up. Kev, if you or any other mod sees this, I think it might be a good idea to move it to the games section. Up to you, of course.

What if Jerry Juhl was still alive and writing?
What if some of the lesser-seen muppets had bigger parts in the movies?
