It’s time to start the music, it’s time to light the lights. That’s right. The wacky crew has released another Muppetational movie, simply called “The Muppets,” this time with screenwriter/actor Jason Segel. If you were a Muppet, which one would you be? Who would be your best Muppet friend? How about your nemesis?

Danielle Bouchat, reporter
Muppet to be: I think I would be Skeeter from “Muppet Babies.”
Muppet to befriend: My best friend would obviously be Scooter. Skeeter and Scooter remind me so much of how my older brother and I were when we were growing up — like two peas in a pod.
Muppet nemesis: Animal, because I like organization and neatness. Also because my other brother, the oldest, always loved Animal!
John Cox, web and visual editor
Muppet to be: Animal! A drummer who lives life with reckless abandon.
Muppet to befriend: Statler and Waldorf crack me up.
Muppet nemesis: Gonzo. Just never been a big fan of his. Too much hype.
Jayne Gest, designer
Muppet to be: I want to be a female version of Rowlf because he’s so cool, but I suspect deep down I'm actually Prairie Dawn. Wah, wah.
Muppet to befriend: Statler and Waldorf — Yes, I know that’s two friends, but they are basically the same person right? Who wouldn't want to be on the good side of the hecklers.
Muppet nemesis: Gonzo — Just like in “Seinfeld,” I don't have a good reason for my animosity. If I ever opened the door and saw that annoying little blue creature, I’d said “Gonzo” in the Newman voice.
Jennifer Hayes, enterprise reporter
Muppet to be: Fozzie Bear. Cute and cuddly, but not the best jokester.
Muppet to befriend: Beaker. Although he’s sort of a goof, he’s a great right-hand man.
Muppet nemesis: Sam the Eagle. He always looks so grumpy, and I’m just not down with that.
Sarika Jagtiani, arts and culture reporter
Muppet to be: I consider myself a Kermit/Statler and Waldorf hybrid. I can put on a show and then make fun of myself and everyone in it.
Muppet to befriend: Rowlf. I feel like after I’ve partied with the Electric Mayhem band and almost everyone’s left the club, I could hang out late night with Rowlf. He’d play piano and we’d talk and drink into the wee hours.
Muppet nemesis: Fozzie. Come on man, get some new material.
Christine Miller, reporter
Muppet to be: I think would be Janice. I relate to her sunny disposition, her love of playing the tambourine in public, and holiday baking. Plus, I love that she’s an admitted tanner.
Muppet to befriend: I’d have fun sitting in the corner with Statler and Waldorf judging everybody and pretending to be unimpressed with their quips. It would just be pretending, though; On the inside, I’d be happy as clam to be hangin’ with the cool “kids.”
Muppet nemesis: Miss Piggy doesn't really qualify as my nemesis because there is part of me that loves her show-stopping, scene-stealing ways. However, I think she would definitely be my frenemy. As much as I love her, in my heart I know she’d stab me in the back quicker than the stage curtain could fall and the fat lady could sing.
