A to Z Challenge: More Fictional Favorites! Day 16: Miss Piggy from The Muppets

P is for — Miss Piggy from The Muppets A2Z-BADGE-0002015-LifeisGood-230_zps660c38a0

I’ve always loved the Muppets. Last year, I wrote about Kermit the Frog for my K post, so it only seems fitting that this year’s A to Z includes his diva co-star, Miss Piggy.

Miss Piggy began as a chorus girl on the Muppet Show, but soon became one of the stars of the show. Her saccharine-sweet-one-moment, temper-tantrum-the-next personality, her romantic pursuit of Kermit, and her trademark “Hi-ya!” karate chops to those who draw her ire always made me laugh.

She prides herself on being a fashionista, and in the various Muppet movies, she displays an amazing array of talents, including motorcycle and truck driving, and some impressive roller-skating skills. Miss Piggy’s karate chop moments, though, are my favorites.

I discovered that Miss Piggy is also an author. One of the books she “wrote,” Miss Piggy’s Guide to Life, spent 29 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list in the early 1980s. She has her own perfume called Moi, and she even has a Facebook page and Twitter account. A true show-biz prima donna, she is always entertaining.

  1. As a kid watching the Muppet Show, Miss Piggy’s karate chops – and the recipient then flying across the set into a wall – were the funniest things to watch ever!
