For details about this item, see the Libraries' Catalog »



Miss Piggy plants a rumor in "Tongue Magazine" alleging that she and Kermit were secretly married in Las Vegas. Kermit gets so mad that he fires Miss Piggy and asks special guest, Loretta Swit, to take her place. Swit appears in "Vet's Hospital" and "Pigs in Space", where she is a great success. Miss Piggy tries to make a dramatic exit, but gets so jealous of Swit that she invades the Swinetrek herself. Highlights include: Gonzo appears as a farmer in "There Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens"; Swit sings "I Feel the Earth Move"; and Miss Piggy sings a tearful "Some of These Days" as she packs up her dressing room.
