FANTASTIC MISS PIGGY SHOW (ABC 9/17/82)
The Fantastic Miss Piggy Show is a one-hour special featuring Miss Piggy hosting her own variety show, with her special guest stars John Ritter, George Hamilton, and Tony Clifton (Andy Kaufman from “Taxi”). Meanwhile, Kermit the Frog and the other Muppets run the show from the control room. Soon a romantic triangle develops between Piggy, Ritter (who is in love with her), and Hamilton (who is uncomfortable with her romantic inclinations). At the end of the show, Miss Piggy is furious when she realizes that her show is really a special, not a series and she wrecks the entire studio, and karate chops Ritter, who is impersonating her.
