"The Hunger Games" won't even be out until March 23, but in true proactive fashion, Gonzo, Miss Piggy, Kermit the Frog and the rest of the Muppets gang have already lampooned the sci-fi drama based on Suzanne Collins' young-adult novel. Call it a pre-emptive spoof.

In the spirit of the Muppets' previous parodies of such blockusters as "Breaking Dawn" and "Green Lantern," the Muppets crew offer their take on "Hunger Games," with their own twists on the myth. Such as Gonzo standing in for Katniss Everdeen, wielding a bow and plunger. And Fozzie Bear, wearing fart shoes. (Hey, creative license takes many forms — some of them puerile.)

Take a look at the Muppets' twist on "The Hunger Games" below. Does it hit its mark with Katniss-like accuracy? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
