You know those times when you’re so tired that things are just automatically funny? Right now is one of those times.
My brother and I were watching Les Miserables, and noticed the fact that Marius kind of sounds like Kermit the Frog. This is funny enough on its own, when you imagine all of Marius’ parts sung by Kermit. But then we came up with the idea that Animal would make a good Enjolras. Picture Red and Black with Animal just running across the screen going “Reeeeedd” and Kermit finishing the line, and then Animal running back across going “Blaaaaaaack” and Kermit finishes. This concept is hilarious to us right now.
So of course we had to cast the rest of Les Mis in Muppets. This is what we came up with.
Kermit as Marius and Kermit as Young Cosette and Kermit as Fantine and Kermit as Jean Valjean
Miss Piggy as Grown Cosette and Miss Piggy as Madame Thernardier
The Swedish Chef as Eponine
Animal as Enjolras
Fozzy Bear as Thernardier
Robin as Gavroche
and Russell Crowe as Javert
