Kanye West, along with pal and collaborator Rhymefest, pitched a puppet parody called "Alligator Boots" back in 2008 that featured absurdly dirty puppets in the vein of "Crank Yankers" doing "Saturday Night Live"-style sketches with celebrity hosts (West being the first) -- or as they put it, a "hip-hop Muppet show." Footage of the show-that-never-was leaked online this week and showed West and company filming portions of the raunchy would-be pilot and was later removed from YouTube by Viacom for copyright infringement.
