Over at OhMyDisney, they’ve come up with 18 movie posters of alternate movie spoofs starring the Muppet gang. The saddest part of the Muppet Most Wanted coming out on March 21st is that these sorts of promos will stop occurring.
A few more of my favorites, below.
Because this is the only way to start a Muppet Movie. Exactly where the last one left off, with meta song and dance. After all, the camera’s still there!
It may not be as stuffily official, or have a plummy accent like Sir David Attenborough’s curling narration. But Gonzo and The Swedish Chef explaining curling is still pretty awesome.
Ok, now they’re just getting silly.
But it’s the Muppets! Of course it’s silly.
On a more serious note, my condolences to the Henson family at the lost of John Henson, who passed from a heart attack over the weekend.
This is getting extra meta.
With Muppets Most Wanted arriving in just over a month, it makes sense that our felted friends would be making an appearance during a SuperBowl commercial break.
You know what that means–behind the scenes photos, plus interviews with Kermit and Piggy!
Some things to know about the film:
- On the challenge of shooting a muppet film, [producer Todd Lieberman] said: “I mean, the technical aspects of making a Muppet movie are very challenging – we learned that with the first one. You have an exterior location like this that isn’t built three-and-a-half feet off the ground, so you have to have people lying on the ground and stuff them into small spaces.”

You may remember the Muppisode starring Gordon Ramsey that was released a couple of weeks back. I’m not sure if this is proof there’s another in the works, or if the people who made it decided we deserved the long version.
Either way, bonus muppets! Bonus bleeping!
In preparation for Muppets Most Wanted, Disney is releasing a series of “Muppisodes.” Considering that Muppets + YouTube was the first brilliant idea of the New Muppet Era, this can only lead to great things.
And it has: Behold: Gordon Ramsey vs The Swedish Chef in “Føødê Fïtê!”
