Nightmare Fuel of the Day: Muppet Show Parody Uses Corpses as Puppets

- -

The Muppets are so lovable and innocent… until they kill us all and use our lifeless bodies as playthings.

Here's what it might be like if the roles were reversed in the intro to "The Muppet Show," with them putting their furry little paws inside us instead and controlling our every move.

Or as the uploader describes it:

The Muppets, after years of oppression, invite you to a night filled with song dance and vengeance.

You will never look at Kermit the same way again.

Jim Henson's original pitch reel for The Muppet Show, starring Leo from Henson's strange series of corporate training videos, The Muppet Meeting Films.

Key selling points:

"Small children will love the cute cuddly characters. Young people will love the fresh innovative comedy. College kids and intellectual eggheads will love the underlying symbolism of everything. Freaky long hair, dirty, cynical hippies will love our freaky long hair, dirty, cynical Muppets."

It's inspirational, celebrational, muppetational!
