Wocka wocka wocka! Kanye West is teaming with Comedy Central and the creators of Crank Yankers on a new puppet-filled show described as hip-hop meets the Muppets.

West hosted a half-hour pilot that has already been shot for the series, The Hollywood Reporter said. The show, to feature music by West and fellow Chicago rapper Rhymefest, is under consideration for 2009.

They will serve as executive producers along with Daniel Kellison. Comedy Central's Crank Yankers was produced by Jackhole Prods., which Kellison founded with Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla.
