I'm going to start a rumor that Rocky Horror was originally written for the Muppets, but the project fell through at the last moment.
@apLundell i think i remember reading about this
kermit was supposed to be brad
bunsen honeydew was going to be Dr Scott
with gonzo as riff raff
Honestly, it's pretty obvious that the Riff Raff character was written specifically for Gonzo.
It's surprising that more people don't pick up on this.
@apLundell It's WAY too easy to imagine Dr. Bunsen Honeydew whipping Beaker as Kermit, Piggy, and Animal look on.
