We never thought we'd see the day that some enterprising Twitter user decided to assign Muppet lookalikes to prominent Civil War generals, but it's officially come. On September 6th, Phd candidate @CNZander began their humorous journey, introducing the world of Twitter to the fact that Braxton Bragg bears an uncanny resemblance to Sam the Eagle. Even more amusing? That General Custer had curls that nearly rival Miss Piggy. We've included some of the astute tweets inthis gallery, but you can check out the thread for more whimsical and historical goodness. There's definitely more where these came from.
As the wave of nostalgia continues to plague our culture, yet another beloved property is getting the old reboot: Jim Henson's Muppet Babies. This ain't your father's Muppet Babies, though. Muppet Babies will feature a new, 100% computer-generated look for Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzy, and the rest. No word yet as to whether or not Nanny and her infamous green and white stripped stockings will be 100% computer generated.
Oh, also, the characters look absolutely terrifying.
