Remember how all those Republicans threw a hissy fit when Jason Segel‘s version of The Muppets came out, because the plot revolved around an evil businessman (Chris Cooper) plotting to tear down the Muppets’ old theater for his own selfish gain? This week’s Lifetime movie, A Nanny’s Revenge, might incite the same overreaction, but any Republicans watching probably overlooked the anti-business message because they were too upset by the fact that the film featured a woman who had crawled out of her binder.

The Muppets‘ new parody trailer sets footage from the movie to the Hunger Games narrative we’ve seen in those trailers… but all the same, we would have been fine if they’d promoted The Muppets itself for the DVD release. It was certainly funny enough on its own! More

It’s hard to act opposite the Muppets. They have the experience, the diversity, the multi-talented chickens. And last night, no matter how charming and fully committed Jason Segel was, he was just no match for the pull of the world’s most famous frog and pig duo, with or without pants. Here are two of the Muppet-centric skits, and one involving Andre the Giant and some frozen treats that got Segel closet to the Muppets’ level. More

If you’ve ever wished you could snap up your favorite pop culture duo and keep it in your pocket, now’s your chance. Artist Andrew Kolb’s series “Two of a Kind” takes well-known characters and turns them into wooden dolls that may be the cutest things I’ve ever seen. The characters run (naturally) in pairs, and of the inspiration for the series, Kolb says, “The idea stems from the recurring theme of pairs comprised of one who is tall and thin and the other who is short and stout.” Each set of figures starts with the same basic templates; then Kolb unleashes his artistic talents, and they turn into unique renderings of pop culture regulars. Like what you see? Check out more of Kolb’s work on his Tumblr. More
Last weekend, we took a walk down memory lane with a video from The Beets, the hit band from original Nicktoon Doug (and if you’re me, yo. u’ve had “Killer Tofu” stuck in your head all week). But you know what? The Beets aren’t the only awesome fictional band out there. Far from it, in fact; there are veritable loads of them, just waiting to take your socks and rock them clean off your feet. So break out the cowbell, because it’s about to get loud!
Kermit the Frog did red carpet commentary at the Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides premiere as promotion for the upcoming Muppets movie. Despite being a puppet, he was ten times more charismatic and funny than Giuliana Rancic. Among the awesome stuff in this video: Geoffrey Rush saying Kermit should have played a monkey in the movie, Keith Richards being himself, Kirstie Alley getting lip gloss on Kermit, Johnny Depp being nice and effacing about Kermit’s Jack Sparrow costume, and Kermit hitting on Vanessa Hudgens.
