Okay, we don’t mean this as a dig to Cirque Du Soleil. All in all, we think they’re pretty cool. But you can’t talk about the Muppets and Cirque Du Soleil in the same post without bringing up Cirque Du So Lamé, the cancelled Muppet Show act that an outside contractor proposed for the Muppets in Its A Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie, a.k.a. It’s a Wonderful Life but with Kermit the Frog, a.k.a. No, I Just Have Something In My Eye, Okay? For the record, it referred to the metallic fabric.
Moving along! The good news is that Kermit and Piggy are confirmed presenters at this year’s Oscars. The other news is that even though the Oscars decided that it didn’t have time in its broadcast for the meagre two musical numbers it nominated for Best Song, it does have time for a Cirque Du Soleil performance.
