Who Would the Pride & Prejudice Characters as Muppets?

If the characters of Jane Austen’s classic Pride & Prejudice were muppets, who would they be, and why?

If the characters of Jane Austen’s classic Pride & Prejudice were muppets, who would they be, and why?

I love seeing memes that ask you to describe P&P and replacing the cast with Muppets.

Even Brett Goldstein wants to do it, although he would cast Miss Piggy as Elizabeth Bennet (whereas I think she’d be better as Mrs. Bennet, to be honest).

I’ll be the first to admit that, aside from The Muppet Christmas Carol, I know next to nothing about who the muppets are. Other than this song by Kermit, which my kids sang in choir a couple of years ago.

So I decided to ask ChatGPT (which really is a great invention, unless you want it to write P&P for you) what it thought. Here’s what it came up with….. do you agree?
