Before he was a CGI creation, Jedi master Yoda was a puppet. Before green screens became the norm, the Dagobah set for ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ was built elevated off the ground to accommodate Yoda’s puppeteers.

In a weird way, that makes the most wizened character in the ‘Star Wars’ universe a distant relative of the extended Muppet family.
It was inevitable. After less than a year on the air, the Jimmy Fallon-starring 'The Tonight Show' has finally found something to supercut: its own weirdly engaging 'Ew!' talk show.

What's gross? Everything. Ew!
