The Muppets Do 'The Wicker Man'

12 March 2010 4:32 PM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

A few brave souls use their fierce talent to recreate beloved works of art page by page or scene by scene. One such artist is Zak Smith, whose impressive book -- Pictures Showing What Happens on Each Page of Thomas Pynchon's Novel Gravity's Rainbow -- does just that. There have also been plenty of cartoons of bunnies acting out movies like The Shining, Alien, and even Brokeback Mountain in 60 seconds, but I am fairly certain I've never seen anything quite like this panel-by-panel recreation of The Wicker Man with the Muppets.

Kermie plays naive Sergeant Howie, while Miss Piggy is naturally the sexy gal Willow, played originally by Britt Ekland with butt-slappin' zest. (There's even a shot of Ekland's nude torso with Miss Piggy's body attached. Gasp!) The best part? Gonzo takes over from Christopher Lee as Lord Summerisle. This is some truly inspired stuff, folks.

Unlike, say, the Nicolas Cage remake. »
