Cartoon Capers: Crazy Covers
The Muppets have done their own version of Bohemian Rhapsody. We posted up the link to their video a day or two ago (here it is again: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgbNymZ7vqY&feature=player_embedded). Now, what we wondered was what other crazy cover versions should be attempted by cartoonish characters? So here are a few suggestions:
Animal goes Moby Dick – The Muppets dumb drummer would be the perfect choice to revisit John Bonham’s masterpiece.
Top Cat leaps through Jump – Well, how often have you thought TC was really the perfect replacement for Diamond Dave. And the latter is a little cartoonish, no?
Bart Simpson warbles through Big Balls – Can you just picture the cheeky yellow chappie getting his tonsils round this ‘DC stonker?
Brains gets into Welcome To The Jungle – This could be as memorable as anything William Shatner has ever done. Trust us on this one.
Scooby-Doo hits on Cat Scratch Fever – The Nuge getting the doggie treatment? Oh, the joy. Would he be amused? Well, we are!
Spiderman gets tough on Girls Girls Girls – The angst riddled Spidey could give this one a darker edge. That would almost make it a goth anthem. Yikes!
The Joker pays attention to Detroit Rock City – A natural born rocker. Mind you, Gene Simmons might sue over his face make-up.
Buzz Lightyear rockets through Master Of The Universe – Who better to lend a 21st Century slant to the Hawkwind space rock tune than the Toy Story hero? He’d take it, ‘To Infinity And Beyond’.
Captain Caveman lights out on Sharp Dressed Man – Ever mistake Cavey for Billy Gibbons? No, we haven’t either. But you can see why he’d love to try this song.
Miss Piggy cuts some shapes to Love Is A Battlefield – Nobody understands the heartbreak and pain of unrequited love than La Pigster!
Right, we’ve started the ball rolling. Any other ideas? Get them in below.
