The Muppets did well over the holiday weekend, both a critical darling and a financial success. Because of the film, NBC is currently developing a new show with muppets with Jim Henson Studios. It's not the Muppets, but you figure some more Muppet films and related stuff will follow in the future. While it may be premature, you might as well scream "Yay!" while flopping your felty arms around.
It turns out, there was a different ending to The Muppets than what showed up on screen. No, it wasn't a demented bloodbath like in Meet the Feebles, nor did Lew Zealand kill Dante Hicks with a boomerang fish.
We've got the info on the alternate ending after the jump, as well as information on a deleted scene. Obviously there are SPOILERS, so abandon hope of surprise all ye who enter below.

So what do you think of these alternate scenes?
