Muppet Babies and Star Wars Are a Thing?!


I have fond - if somewhat vague - memories of watching Muppet Babies as a kid and loving the show. Much to my mom's regret, I went through a phase of trying to be funny like Fozzie Bear and would spend most of the time in the car during road trips practicing my jokes (seriously, I recall pointing out the lines on my palm and telling my mom they were there because I was cracking myself up). An issue of Muppet Babies was also my first comic. I vaguely remember coloring in it - I mostly don't do that anymore.

I didn't know what Star Wars was when I was little and even if I saw the Muppet Babies parody episode back then, I wouldn't remember it. My memory is not the best. This means I just get to be delighted about the same things repeatedly! Muppet Babies and Star Wars came up on last week's Forcecast and one of the hosts mentioned the mash-up episode. I hoped it was on YouTube and tada!

Don't mind me, I'm just over here dying of adorable.







Gonzo also makes a Star Wars parody in "Gonzo's Video Show:"


It turns out that Star Wars was also parodied in one of the issues of the comic so I did what any reasonable person would do and ran across the internet to eBay. I love when worlds collide.
