The Muppets Studio is back with another song. First, it was the ultra-cool rock opera with their cover of "Bohemian Rhapsody." Then it was Beaker's Meemeriffic "Dust in the Wind." Now, the Studio gets back to some carnivore Muppet violence with a cover of Ben E. King's "Stand by Me," which you can check out after the jump.
This time around, Big Mean Carl gets to sing, luring helpless bunnies to stand by him for, well, obvious reasons. There's nothing quite like the moments when the Muppets delight in black, dark humor. Not only is Big Mean Carl a menacing bunny eater wielding a carrot like a killer -- he's also doing it right before the bunny-centric Easter holiday.
I've got to hand it to the Muppets. While I dug them as a kid, my interest waned over the years until this series of videos came out. Talk about a great way to reinvigorate Muppet love before the movie, although I really don't think a feature can encapsulate the perfection of these short videos.
And, dear Muppets Studio, may I respectfully request Kermit and Miss Piggy digging into Journey next? They'd really rock a cover of "Separate Ways."
