Are You Ready For Muppet Porn?

8/14/2006 4:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

First there were Tommy Lee and Pam and Paris and Rick. Now, the public could soon witness an even more shocking celebrity sex romp -- Kermit and Miss Piggy. Seriously. It turns out the creators of "The Muppets" and "Sesame Street" are staging a rude and lewd puppet show- strictly for adults- called "Jim Henson's Puppet Improv."

The live puppet show has already made quite an impression at the annual Edinburgh Fringe arts festival, which features this kind of adult, er, entertainment.

The late Jim Henson's son Brian, director of the "Muppet Christmas" and "Muppet Treasure Island" movies, tells Reuters "That really pleases me," and says he is reveling in the freedom of performing for adults only.

"It is lovely to do a show where you can go wherever your brain takes you," says Henson, winding down after a show where the audience asked the puppeteers to feature six hot dogs auditioning to be Ricky Martin's backup singers.

Henson, who has performed the improvisation show in Aspen and Hollywood, says he hopes to develop the edgy routine into a TV show. Two other projects he is working on are also just for adults.

"There is something really therapeutic for us about this adult improv," he says.
So could Fozzie "Bare" and "Groper" be making their way onto the small screen in the near future? One can only hope.

I think that's disgusting. Jim Hensen is probably rolling over in his grave right now. His son should be ashamed. My son is in the target audience for Sesame Street but I won't be buying any childrens toys made by amoral imbeciles.

So let Me get this straight....

Just cus the Muppets are having sex now- -You don't want them to be affiliated with your children?

That's good.

That's good.

Yeah, I hope you guys know that EVERY PARENT has or has HAD a sex life.

I'm serious.

It's true.

I actually sent these findings to NASA?

Surprisingly a hundred percent of biological parents?

Have at one time or another engaged in some sort of sexual act with someone or each other before- -or- -dare I say it- -BOTH! =)

Oh, and surprisingly?

Teachers of the world?

Yeah, some of them have had sex too. :)

AND they teach your children :)

BLASPHEMY! =)

mbh    

i think people are getting a little too fired up about this. don't most good parents censor their behavior in front of their children, don't use curse words, entertain their children, etc. during the day, but don't you also have sex at night? if the kids don't ever see it or know about it then what's the big deal. it's just supposed to be funny - not erotic.

This is nothing new. And it's very clearly state that the improv is Adults Only, so what is the big deal?

Avenue Q, the musical parody of Sesame Street on Broadway has been running for a few years now, and features very explicit and very funny puppet sex.
