THE MUPPETS

MISS PIGGY (Miss Piggy) makes her long-awaited and much-sought-after return to the big screen in 2011 in Disney's "The Muppets.” The larger-than-life star of television, film, stage, the Web and all media known and unknown throughout the universe has been dominating show business since her initial public appearance in the chorus on "The Herb Alpert Special” in 1974.

She appeared as 1st Sow in the "Return to the Planet of the Pigs” sketch on "The Muppet Show: Sex and Violence” in 1975 (which was, in effect, the pilot for "The Muppet Show”). But her unforgettable breakout performance came during the musical number "Temptation” on the very first episode of "The Muppet Show.” Miss Piggy started as a chorus pig and came back a star…who wouldn't let go of Kermit. The rest is history.

Miss Piggy's film credits include "The Muppet Movie” (1979), "The Great Muppet Caper” (1981), "The Muppets Take Manhattan” (1984), "The Muppet Christmas Carol” (1992), "Muppet Treasure Island” (1996) and "Muppets From Space” (1999). She's also had starring roles in the TV films "Muppets' Wizard of Oz” (2005) and "A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa.” In addition to her star-making turn in "The Muppet Show,” which ran from 1976-1981, Miss Piggy's television credits include "Muppets Tonight” as well as the blockbuster TV specials "Miss Piggy's Hollywood” and "The Fantastic Miss Piggy Show.” She has appeared on every talk show worth talking about, including "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno,” "Live With Regis and Kelly,” "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” "The View” and "Today,” among others. Piggy has also been featured on "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” "Dancing With the Stars” and "America's Got Talent,” among other notable programs lucky enough to land her talents. She stars in a veritable cornucopia of videos and captivated audiences worldwide with her appearance in the recent Webby-winning Muppet viral-video performance of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody” (2009). She has graced the covers of magazines around the world and appeared on the 68th Annual Academy Awards® as a presenter. She is still (impatiently) awaiting her first nomination.

Piggy's book "Miss Piggy's Guide to Life” was a national best-seller. And she recently followed up this success with her wildly popular book "The Diva Code: Miss Piggy on Life, Love, and the 10,000 Idiotic Things Men Frogs Do.”
