Muppet fans, rejoice! Jason Segel, writer/star of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, also star of sitcom How I Met Your Mother and also like the awesome boyfriend ever in Undeclared, is penning a feature script for a new Muppets movie, where our marionette cast reunites for a final variety show.
Yay for Jason Segel! Who can forget that momentous scene in his character’s puppet play where Dracula morosely sings “Die! Die! [pause] I can’t.” Hmmm…I guess you had to be there.
Yay for Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy! Seriously, if there’s one thing missing in our superficial, Twitter and iPhone-inundated world where a photograph of Miley Cyrus can cause an uproar….it’s PUPPETS.
Rumor has it that if Segel’s feature film does well, executives hope to bring the classic Muppet Show back to television screens.
My only question is…What? No love for The Muppet Babies? (I can still sing the theme song by heart. And break glass while doing so.) That cartoon molded my childhood, and to this day, I wonder what Nanny really looked like above her green striped stockings.
