The Muppets go Ga Ga

In case you haven’t seen it, check out this hysterical Muppet  mash-up of Lady Gaga’s latest hit – Telephone.

Imitation may prove yet again to be the sincerest form of flattery. One thing’s for sure, while pop songs will come and go…the Muppet’s are timeless.

That’s my point of view. What’s your twist?
Are you gaga for these little monsters?

  1. AH, The Muppets. Julie, you’re speaking to my heart, here. Just missed the Sesame Street era (tho’ had younger brother who watched), but Jim Henson, his writers and muppeteers were never funnier with The Muppet Show which ran between 1976 and 1981. As a parody of variety shows, with a disaster always looming, the humor was built on two levels, as was Henson’s forte; one for kids and another for adults. The skits were also parodies of standard genres and the guest stars were the top stars of the day. Hilarious to watch and holds up to this day.

    Personal favs: Scientist, Dr. Bunsen Honeydoo and his hapless assistant, Beaker. The Swedish Chef, who spoke no english and always had a disaster in the kitchen. And Scooter, the stage manager at the Muppet Show, who wore glasses, but had no eyeballs. He was the nephew of the theatre owner where the “show” was done hence coining the phrase “nephewtism.”

    Oh, and I can’t forget Statler and Waldorf, the curmudgeony old guys who heckled everyone from their box seats at the top of the theatre.

    Sorry, you shouldn’t have gotten me started!

    1. @Susan R. Thanks for conjuring so many of these great characters. I’ve been thinking about the Swedish chef all afternoon and every time I do it makes me smile.
