Appearing on the scene as part of the Muppet family much later than many of the other characters (Kermit first appeared in 1955, Rowlf in 1963 and the Cookie Monster had many iterations prior to him being named in the early 1970s), Miss Piggy rapidly grew to become one of Henson’s most iconic characters and one of television’s best-known personalities.
Abrasive and uncompromising, with a lethal karate-chop, Miss Piggy’s only weakness seems to be our little green chum Kermit as well as her over-blown ego, both of which created many, many laughs over the years.
This compilation brings together the best (and worst) moments of one of the most famous Muppets of all.
