Go watch Permanent Midnight with Ben Stiller. Its a true story about the guy who wrote the script for Alf. Ben Stiller in a serious role was surprisingly good.


That could have been the whole gimmick . Kermit taking Alf’s side, explaining to everyone that, “no! alf is NOT a Muppet!” And everyone not being able to understand. Miss Piggy: Oh Alf, you really are a fascinating muppet! Kermit: For the last time!

What if we’re all muppets
