The Muppets Should Host The Oscars!!!

| Filed under: DisneyOscars


It's the most inspired idea we've ever heard! Literally, this would be the most EPIC thing to ever happen to the Academy Awards. We would never turn the show off!!!!

If the suits over at ABC - owned by Disney, who also own The Muppets (hint, hint) - don't go through with this, they are missing out on the most golden opportunity of all time.

Now that Eddie Murphy is out, everyone is wondering who should take over for him hosting this year's Oscar ceremonies. One brilliant 27-year-old guy named Charlie Poekel started a campaign to have Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and all their friends host the Oscars the day after last year's show and now that there is an opening, he is hoping to see his dream realized. Such foresight!

He explained the genius of his idea to the Village Voice, saying:

"[He came up with the idea] watching the Oscars last year. As much as I loved both of the hosts, I think the feeling I got from a lot of America was that there was something missing. There's something about the old Oscars — I don't know if it's just nostalgia — but we expect this big experience that we just haven't been getting, and that's in line with what the Muppets do.

The thing with the Oscars is that it's supposed to be entertainment; it's supposed to be fun, funny, interesting. That's something the Muppets have always done well. There are only a few things that are universally enjoyed, and the Muppets are really one of those premier institutions."

Beautifully said and completely true!

Can you just imagine? Imagine the hijinks! Imagine the HIGHlarity! The mayhem! There would be a show-stopping, glamourous number by Miss Piggy! Fozzie could open the show with a routine that audiences actually want to be stale! OMG! Waldorf and Statler as the announcers!!!! C'MON!!!

This could be the kind of unprecedented thing that would draw audiences in in droves! We can think of nothing better!

Join the movement! Make this happen! #MuppetsOscars !!! Tell all your friends!!!

    Yup, a bunch of puppets targeted at children hosting a show targeted at adults. Makes perfect sense, moron…..

    this is the stupidest idea ever

    Re: Rohan – The Muppets not always targeted children. They used to have in the 70s a pretty neat show that it was aimed to adults, it was very fun. I remember Kermit was the host of very great celebrities of the time.

    Do not understand your fascination with the Muppets. I say bring back Billy Crystal.

    I say it's a great idea. It'll be like one big live version of the Muppet show! That would appeal to all ages. :3

    omg I would totally watch that, speaking from someone who couldn't stand to sit through the last few Oscars. (Franco was just so annoyingly distracting) I think the only thing better would be the Simpsons showing up, (hint hint to Simpson Writers).
