So a few weeks ago, I spent an evening giggling to myself (and thereby creeping my wife out) with the notion of casting Muppet Game of Thrones. Then this Tuesday our friend Lydia visited us, and we spent WAY too much time discussing casting choices. And on Wednesday I learned that Sesame Street is (sadly) moving to HBO for a few years, and suddenly my favorite thought experiment was topical! So I’ve been posting casting choices on Twitter using the hashtag #MuppetGameOfThrones, in case anyone feels like joining me in this game.
Here are the rules:
-Cast based primarily on personality, secondarily on physicality
-Any Jim Henson creation is allowed. Muppet Show, Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, whatever.
-Select humans are also allowed! Muppet movies always have a human cast too.
-Explain your choices. Describe scenes that make you laugh.
That’s it! I hope this game makes you laugh as much as I did.
