Get Excited for the Return of the Muppets!

Who doesn’t love The Muppets? There’s something timeless and endearing about the whole gang, from Kermit and Miss Piggy to Gonzo and Fozzie Bear.

This led to a spirited debate about whether Sam the Eagle or Gonzo would work better as Dwight Schrute, though we agreed that Meredith would clearly be played by Janice.

And since ABC is apparently taking inspiration from NBC for their newest sitcom, perhaps this was all inspired by SNL’s The Office/The Hobbit mashup:

    I saw that clip earlier today and rushed to tell my friends and family to watch it. It’s really funny and if the show is that funny this thing should be a hit.
