Peep This: Muppets With People Eyes

Who knew replacing those funky white-ball Muppet eyes with people eyes would be so damn creepy.

Statler and Waldorf will poke your eye out if you don’t keep tabs on the Tumblr Muppets With People Eyes. Still in its infancy, you can see how mesmerizingly unsettling the effect is, no matter the character.

The Simpsons: Brought to You by the Ümlaut (and Katy Perry?)

The best part about The SimpsonsThe Fight Before Christmas” holiday special wasn’t the Treehouse of Horror -style format. Nor Katy Perry outdoing her “shocking” Sesame Street appearance through an oral sex joke with a Muppet Mo. Nope, it was how the entire episode was brought to you by the Ümlaut. (Thanks, Brookelynn!)

Mërry Christmas!
