The Muppets Should Make a Disney Cover Album

Ryan Dosier – Two of my favorite things in the world are the Muppets (duh) and Disney (also kind of duh, if you know about our sister site, The Mickey Mindset). The Muppets have been owned by Disney for over 10 years now, and it seems to me that they’ve missed one of the most obvious opportunities for merchandise and cross-promotion… The Muppets Sing Disney Songs. An album of Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, and the gang singing some of the classic Disney songs from their 80 years of animated features. Just imagine the possibilities! Below are just a few of the ideas I came up with for Disney songs that would be perfect for the Muppets.

  • “Heigh-Ho” from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs – Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem
  • “When You Wish Upon a Star” from Pinocchio – Kermit the Frog
  • “Curella de Vil” from 101 Dalmatians – Rowlf the Dog
  • “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from Mary Poppins – Scooter and The Swedish Chef
  • “The Bear Necessities” from The Jungle Book – Fozzie Bear and Bobo the Bear
  • “Topsy Turvy” from The Hunchback of Notre Dame – Gonzo and the Chickens
  • “Under the Sea” from The Little Mermaid – Lew Zealand
  • “Gaston” from Beauty and the Beast – Rizzo the Rat and Link Hogthrob
  • “Be Our Guest” from Beauty and the Beast – The Muppets
  • “Friend Like Me” from Aladdin – Gonzo
  • “A Whole New World” from Aladdin – Kermit and Miss Piggy
  • “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King (Prawn)” from The Lion King – Pepe the King Prawn and Sam Eagle
  • “Be Prepared” from The Lion King – Constantine
  • “Colors of the Wind” from Pocahontas – Kermit the Frog
  • “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” from Toy Story – Kermit and Fozzie
  • “Go the Distance” from Hercules – Walter
  • “Friends on the Other Side” from The Princess and the Frog – Uncle Deadly
  • “I’ve Got a Dream” from Tangled – The Muppets
  • “Let it Go” from Frozen – Miss Piggy
There are seriously dozens of great, great songs that the Muppets could make even better–or funnier–by doing a cover album of Disney songs. Who wouldn’t want to hear Miss Piggy belting out “Let it Go”? So come on, Disney! Bring in the Muppet performers to record what is sure to be a fantastic album!
