Love truly knows no bounds. As we have seen from the decades-long relationship of Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog, the love between a man and a woman will last longer than anything if taken care of properly. Not everyone has been kept up-to-date with the romance of TV’s greatest power couple. So, here is a rundown of their relationship.
In 1976, the two Muppet stars first met. It was in a scene from “The Muppet Movie” where Miss Piggy joined a pageant. She won the competition and that was when Kermit the Frog spotted her. From then on, they appeared in many shows together. While building their relationship since their first movie, Miss Piggy attempted to marry Kermit for several times.
The first wedding attempt happened two years after “The Muppet Movie.” She tried to make Kermit the Frog tie the knot with her by secretly hiring a priest to take charge of the wedding. In spite of all of the efforts Miss Piggy exerted just to hear Kermit the Frog’s “I do,” Kermit still managed to turn her down.
A year after, it seems as though Miss Piggy has not given up on marrying the love of her life. In 1979, Kermit the Frog got a chance to make an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.” He was supposed to be Carson’s co-host for the night. However, it turns out that it was not just a plain hosting gig as Miss Piggy made a surprise appearance on the show. Everyone was shocked to see Miss Piggy – even Kermit as she made a shocking announcement about their relationship. Miss Piggy then broadcasted their engagement.
Years after, the two Muppet stars once again attempted to marry in “The Muppets in Manhattan” in 1984. Big Bird, Ernie, Bert, Grover, and the rest of the “Sesame Street” crew were there to witness Miss Piggy’s much-awaited day. They even helped them organize the wedding. Even so, Miss Piggy later revealed that the original priest was dismissed without her knowledge prior to their wedding day.
After quite some time, the two Muppets faced a challenge in their relationship. In “The Muppets” movie back in 2011, Miss Piggy was in Paris working as a fashion editor in for a magazine while Kermit the Frog was in Los Angeles. Their relationship was put on the rocks but they still managed to make it through together.
The couple did not give up on each other even after a number of wedding mishaps. In 2014, they revealed their wedding plans once again and gave away more details.
However, as they say, relationships in Hollywood do not last long. In 2015, their long-time relationship was put to an end. Kermit the Frog took to Twitter to announce that his relationship with Miss Piggy has ended. In spite of that, he assured the Muppet fans that they will still work together on television shows professionally.
But it seems Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog are still in love with each other. In 2016, the two had a heart-to-heart talk, talking about their feelings for each other. But they did not get back together.
