Description (Brief)
"TV Guide," August 1 - 7, 1981 (Radnor, Pennsylvania: TV Guide, 1981). Cover features photograph of Miss Piggy on a pink floating chair in a pool. Miss Piggy is a diva pig who believes she is a superstar. She is madly in love with Kermit the Frog and is an expert in karate. Miss Piggy began as “Piggy Lee” on The Tonight Show in 1974 and eventually the “Lee” was dropped so as not to upset Peggy Lee. Miss Piggy then became a major character on The Muppet Show.
