    Here in the underground lair, I see a big scrollable wall of commentoplasm. It has no context unless I research it. And the glare from the shark tank doesn’t help.

    A wonderful clip, and satire of the original Queen video.

    The sequence of “Animal” singing/screaming “Mama! Mama?…” is Perfect.

    Thanks for posting it, Xeni.

    Good to see you on Rachel’s show, too.

    Greatest representation of the Muppets’ musical talent I’ve seen for a long time! It’s great; why was it on the “back burner” for so long? Loved it!

    they did resurrect the muppet show back in the mid nineties. they called it muppets tonight. it lasted two seasons and won two primetime emmys. based on the configuration of the computer at the end of the skit, ill bet this is from an episode of that show.

    Xeni,

    Our language does not adequately convey the sheer awesome of that clip, nor does it allow me to properly express my gratitude at seeing it.

    I simply say “BLAHSHBSHAWESUM!” and tip my hat to you.

  47. jocoska says:

    I LOVE the Muppets. That’s why I hate this video. Bad puppets, bat voices, bad timing. I hope it’s not official/original Muppets but someone’s excelent home made video. I mean, look at Gonzo’s nose – you can see the badly colored yellow sponge…

    • Anonymous says:

      I disagree with you, but about Gonzo’s nose, that’s the problem with this HD era. Some thing were not meant to be filmed in HD, and Gonzo’s nose is one of them.
      This is the real deal, though.
      I loved it! HD and all! It was perfectly made!

  48. MarkM says:

    A. That blew my mind.
    B. That was from the original Muppet show? At the end, it shows Kermit in front of a very modern PC. And of course the original Muppet show was from 1976-1979.

    Thank you for posting the link. I am still grinning.

    You know, I think I remember a “Bohemian Rhapsody” sketch from the classic Muppet Show from ages ago. This seems like an all-new version, but is it? Am I having a false memory?

    I think Disney has enough sense not to mess up the Muppets. At least I hope they do.

    this makes me so happy. one of the people who worked on this is someone i have known since we were 4 years old. if i had a time machine i’d totally go back and tell him that he got to grow up to do the best job ever, spreading muppet joy!

    Interesting and fun. However, there were no references to murder and execution in this version. As fun as it was, had they played this on the original Muppet Show when I was a child, I would have been confused and wouldn’t have liked it. Sanitizing this song just seems wrong to me. But I loved Kermit’s comment at the end.

    Hey, how come my “I thought it was rubbish” comment got deleted? It was in reference to the typical comments the Muppet judge guys make at the end of a performance.

    BoingBoing has just made me sad :(

    This is the best thing I have ever seen. I can’t decide if I liked Animal or the prawn better.

    Dude, where’s Kermit? Otherwise, awesome, but Kermit should have had a part too.

    Who is making these videos? This is clearly new, post Jim Henson. I know Disney bought the Muppets in 2004, which worried me. But if they continue to produce cool material like this, I guess I might temporarily put aside my disdain for Disney.

    Muppets used to scare me as a young child. I still don’t like them.

    It’s become a cliche to fling around the following phrase at every vaguely nifty/funny/interesting thing that comes around, but I say it with all honesty this time:

    BEST.
    THING.
    EVER.

  85. mdh says:

    had you prefaced it with a “Statler:” or “Waldorf:” it would have sounded like a joke… but text by itself does not put a balcony box around you and give you a muppet face. More context and it would have quite been funny.
