It’s Kermit and the Muppet Show! Yaayyyyyy!!!!!11111! *flailing arms*
If you didn’t already know, Jim Henson’s son Brian Henson has a new movie out called The Happytime Murders, which is a twisted comedy in the puppet film universe. Brian Henson’s claim to fame is his work directing Mr. Kermit The Frog in A Muppet Christmas Carol, a classic holiday movie (and if Michael Caine’s performance doesn’t bring a tear to your eye, then you have no heart). But in the last several years, the young Henson has directed his focus to more R-rated puppet humor.
So we at Fanfiction Nation thought, “are there any darker Muppet-centric fanfics on the internet worth sharing with the world?” Well, yes. Yes, there are!
We present to you Part 1 of “Saving The Dream,” written by Nirai Syrith. The premise? Kermit has a tragic illness and he’s stuck in the hospital. What will the Muppet gang do?? And will Kermit live?? All your favorites are in this — Kermit, Fozzie, Gonzo, Miss Piggy, Rowlf (proudly voiced as though he’s been a lifelong chainsmoker), Scooter, and even Pepe, that newer prawn muppet Pepe that nobody likes.
Listen to this episode and let us know what you think! And don’t forget — Part 2 is coming next week!
