Yesterday, we told you about Kayne West's Comedy Central puppet show Alligator Boots. A minute-long clip from the pilot emerged today, giving us a brief but hilarious preview at the show being touted as "The Muppet Show meets hip-hop." In the clip, the puppet rapper -- who looks like a Muppetized version of Digital Underground's Shock G -- tells the story of Apple Bottom Jeans-wearing female puppets who bring their baby puppets to the puppet club with them. There are also verses about backstage breast-feeding and a baby seat in the Hummer. The script doesn't require much from Kanye, so the rapper just does his part to look cool standing in a fake night club located somewhere on Sesame Street. Comedy Central is reportedly gunning for a 2009 debut for the series. Meanwhile, Kanye revealed on his blog that his 808s is done and that the new release date is "November something" because "I want y'all to hear it as soon as possible."
