It was reported yesterday that Kanye is developing a puppet-based variety show for Comedy Central called Alligator Boots. I made the argument that this sounded like a terrible idea. Today, we get our first glimpse of what the show is going to look like, and I don’t want to blog I told you so, but WOOF.
This is the final proof that we need to convince a hesitant public that it’s time to put an end to calling things the “Muppets of [blank].” Meet the Feebles was not “the Muppets on drugs,” Crank Yankers was not “the Muppets meet the Jerky Boys,” and this is not the “Muppet Show for hip hop.” Just because you put puppets in something terrible doesn’t make it comparable to something that was good. REAL TALK.
