The Mediaite Muppet Show: Media Figures And Their Muppet Equivalents

Back when Mediaite was still in its infancy, when all the writers you know and love were adorable baby versions of themselves being cared for by a mysterious, sock-wearing woman named Nanny, a tradition was formed. Whenever the holidays would roll around, the Mediaite brain trust would choose the big pop cultural event of the year and find all the media counterparts for the various characters. At the time, back in the sepia-toned days of 2009, that cultural event was Harry Potter. Well, now it’s 2011, and Potter-mania is all wrapped up thanks to that shock twist ending in the last film that revealed the whole story was taking place (SPOILERS!) inside Sirius Black’s snow globe. That means we need a new fictional world and, if you’ve gone anywhere near a television in the past few months, the choice is clear.

Unfortunately, that clear choice (characters from Ken Burns’ prohibition documentary) was shot down by our editors, so we’re moving on to our second choice; The Muppets!

So gather round, pull your favorite chicken or pig close, and make sure all your Wakka’s are Wakked, because it’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights, it’s time to meet the Muppets on Muppet Mediaite!
