Famous Pigs:

Miss Piggy Miss Piggy

Miss Piggy began her career as a backup singer on Jim Henson’s Muppet Show.  By the second show Miss Piggy was an important character. She wore a lounge-singer’s dress and sexy high heels.

Calista Hendrickson, the dress designer, wanted to make Miss Piggy much more flamboyant and scandalous than the other characters on the show. Hendrickson was quoted as saying, “In the beginning, when we started doing clothes for Miss Piggy, we wanted her to be sort of frump – a fat person who didn’t dress right. But she had aspirations for a Hollywood career.”
