The good folks of Comics Should Be Good put out a Twitter survey asking their readers which Muppets should be mashed-up with which classic superheroes. And the results were fantastic. I personally loved the idea of Animal being morphed into Wolverine. It’s so fitting!

Dragged kicking and screaming from the musical tribute, Muppets: The Green Album, comes this brilliant video collaboration (surprise, surprise) between OK GO and The Muppets. Says Kermit himself: ‘OK Go never does anything the way you’d expect it. I think they were Muppets in a previous lifetime’. Watch on in awe. Again. [Watch this brilliant video here]

Bohemian Rhapsody played on slide whistles

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Video on Friday 22 October 2010

First we had The Muppets putting their unique touch on the Queen masterpiece, now YouTube sensation, Joe Penna, has entered the fray with this somewhat tasteless, but exquisitely fumbled rendition done exclusively on the only instrument out there that makes those torturous Chinese stringed instruments sound marginally in tune.

You gotta love the Muppets. Over the years, the Muppets house band has collaborated with everyone from Norah Jones to this stunning performance with Elton John. What a song! But which one is really the puppet?

The Muppets nail Queens’ Bohemian Rhapsody

Chris Nolan Reader Find

By Chris Nolan in Video on Wednesday 25 November 2009

I am pretty much speechless. The title speaks for itself. It’s just brilliant. The Muppets take on Queen with their take on the classic, Bohemian Rhapsody. And the result is a must see video.
