More Muppets, because it still makes me smile

The last post about The Muppets’ version of “Bohemian Rhapsody” was quite popular — I think we broke a traffic record here! (unless it was the religion rant) — so why not have some more?

Once again, I’m almost embarrassed how happy this makes me. Is it because the characters were well developed at the time? Or childhood nostalgia? Or both? The lyrical “mi-mi-mi” and “durn-durghy-durgh” that fits so well, and is so identifiable when you’re singing a song you don’t know the words to? Somehow it’s perfect.

There was some article explaining this “taking the Internet by storm” deal, as apparently whoever owns the Muppets now is resurrecting them — the right way, they claim — in advance of a movie or something next year.

Whatever, I don’t care. This stuff just rocks.

  1. I simply love it. The characters and timing have everything to do with it (for me). Also, when I went to U City High School back in the day, there was a guy in my class who looked tragically similar to Beeker.

    1. I know! I don’t know how they did it with Beaker: He doesn’t really resemble a human, yet everybody has a friend or two who, well, looks like Beaker.

      And here’s more, ending in typical lab experiment mishap: Ode to Joy.

  2. OH.MY.GOD. Thankuverymuchforthat!

    There are not words to describe how much I love Animal. Was watching their other Christmas movie (NOT Christmas carol) last night and almost fell off the sofa laughing at Animal.
