The Muppets, Aaron Sorkin 'Studio 60' mashup

Posted on

ABC

Aaron Sorkin, fresh off penning and producing his take on late Apple CEO Steve Jobs, is taking a stab at The Muppets. Sort of.

Enterprising comedian and YouTube user Mike Henneberger combined clips of the puppets’ revived ABC show and Sorkin’s one-season wonder, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. It’s mostly Sorkin dialogue, now delivered by Kermit and company. 

In Studio 60 On The Sesame Street, Kermit is Matt Albie (Matthew Perry) and Scooter assumes Danny Tripp (Bradley Whitford), recently off the wagon. (Sam Eagle is still very much Sam Eagle.)

Naturally, Ms. Piggy in this alternate reality is still on the rocks with the Big Frog: she’s Albie’s ex, Harriet Hayes (Sarah Paulson).
