With the new movie The Muppets, I found out that Miss Piggy and Kermit aren’t happily together forever. Walter, who happens to be the world’s biggest Muppet fan is focused on bringing the whole gang back together it. Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Muppets, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate, and Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris.
The fact that Kermit was in the states while Miss Piggy was in France made me wonder if Miss Piggy and Kermit ever got married? Miss Piggy has had googly eyes for that cute green frog forever and I couldn’t tell if it was completely one way or not. Seems like Miss Piggy was strong willed enough that if she wanted a marriage it would have happened right?
Maybe they didn’t handle pre marriage counseling very well. And maybe they did get married and they could have used Mort Fertel (marriage counseling) from Marriage Max. Marriage Max specializes in saving marriages. And maybe they never really got married. Perhaps Miss Piggy was just too career oriented and decided she couldn’t have both. All I can picture, is Miss Piggy with her feather boa wrapped around Kermit and how could he resist that? I guess even for muppets there is more to marriage than a feather boa inspired marriage.
I’ll be in Hollywood later this week watching the Muppet movie footage courtesy of Disney. With secret, signature, celebrity cameos, “The Muppets” hits the big screen Nov. 23, 2011.
