Alligator Boots (partially lost pilot of cancelled Comedy Central sketch/puppet series by Kanye West; 2008)
Alligator Boots was a pilot episode for a "Muppet Show" type show created by rapper and producer Kanye West and along with Rhymefest and creators of the show Crank Yankers Jimmy Kimmel, Adam Carolla, and Daniel Kellison. The puppets in the show were created by Jim Henson's Muppet Workshop. The show had a colorful cast of puppet characters. Some characters include "Beary White", and "Pork Troy" A rapper that is a pig, but no one seems to know that. The show was produced for comedy central. The pilot is quite important to Kanye's life since it was the first instance of Kim Kardashian and Kanye working together and really connecting.

The pilot was last seen in 2009, when a documentary about the pilot that is still viewable to this day was made. This documentary gives us a lot of insight as to what the show could've looked like, and we can even see a few completed scenes. Although this is the case, due to the fact that the show was not picked up by Comedy Central the pilot never aired. Due to this, there is no chance that anyone had a recording of the pilot. Right now, it is unknown who currently still has the pilot. There is a chance that either Comedy Central kept the pilot, or one of the producers of the pilot might still have a copy.
