“Sunny day…sweepin’ the clouds away” : Richard Armitage and The Muppets

If you were dropping by solely for some degree of erudition or classical scholarship…move on my friend.   Today, I’m channeling the four year old me and thinking about the Muppets.  If you haven’t seen the adorable video  of Tom Hiddleston schooling Cookie Monster on the value of patience, here it is..

I watched this yesterday and it reminded me of how much I’ve always loved the Muppets.  I grew up on Sesame Street, and my family also loved The Muppet Show.   It also gave me a clear idea of the mass appeal of Tom Hiddleston and inspired me to ponder how Richard Armitage and his chaRActers might interact with the Muppet crew.  So, without further ado, I give you my Muppet Meanderings… (all Muppet images sourced from muppetwikia.com and all Richard Armitage images from richardarmitagenet.com – crops are mine)

Some chaRActer possibilites…

What might happen if Richard Armitage dropped by Sesame Street as Richard Armitage?

This is really just the tip of the iceberg, but I have to get at least some work done today!  What muppet favorites do you have?  (feel free to share links and pix in comments)  We already know Richard is a little partial to Kermit 🙂
