Following their brand-new big screen Disney adventure, "The Muppets," Jim Henson's stable of beloved felt characters are definitely back in the public eye. All of this newfound Muppet fever has sparked rumors (and even some actual exploration from Disney) about the return of the '70s staple "The Muppet Show" to primetime television.

But aside from Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo and the rest, "The Muppet Show" needs celebrity guests. But who would be the best possible choice for guest "Muppet Show" hosts? Celebs who have worked with the Muppets before, like Steve Martin and John Cleese? Rising comic stars like Daniel Tosh and Patton Oswalt? Sketch comedy favorites who could best work in the Muppet style? Or maybe it'd be fun just to see the Muppets interact with big movie and TV stars, like they do on "Saturday Night Live." This list is a chance to collect the ultimate stars who would best share the stage with a whole bunch of wacky, singing puppets. Vote for your favorites, and if no one else has added the best possible choice yet, jump in and suggest them yourself! It's an Open List! Yaaaaayyyyyy!!!
