So, forever, i've been hearing Piggy say her fanbase is bigger than Kermit's... Is it really?
It's tough to consider, as it seems that Kermit is the face of the franchise, yet for some reason I think that many people (namely females) are huge fans of Piggy. I feel like Kermit is the cover popular Muppet, yet Piggy is the real popular Muppet, so kinda both. Piggy is probably more memorable, yet Kermit is probably more well-known.
I think that Kermit's position as the unofficial face of the Muppets gives him the edge in popularity. Also, and this might be an unpopular statement here, some casual fans might be turned off a bit by Miss Piggy's attitude. I have two friends who, although they have an appreciation for the Muppets, can't stand Miss Piggy. Kermit has a more friendly persona.
MISS PIGGY RULES!
All I say.
Well this puts me in a tough situation.
Yeah I know...
KERMIT RULES TOO!!!
I believe Kermit the Frog is more popular.
He's one of the world's greatest amphibians!
For me, I knew Kermit the Frog well before the others. Even before I knew what Muppets are.
And boy, did I hate Miss Piggy at first.
Well Kermit has definetely been popular longer than Miss Piggy has. It seems to me like more people would name him as their favorite Muppet. And may I just say, I'm glad I'm not the only person who didn't like Piggy at first.
Am I the only one who loved Miss Piggy from the start?
To be honest, though I don't mind Piggy and realize how integral part of the Muppets she is, I still to this day don't necessarily LIKE her. I basically came to terms with her and that's all.
I knew Kermit the Frog before Miss Piggy because when I first started watching Sesame Street, Kermit the Frog was on it. I remember enjoying the Elevator Operator sketch where Kermit gets angry at The Count for not letting him stop on the 7th floor.
I think the reason that it took me a while to like Piggy was because I've been a Kermit fan for as long as I can remember. I've had a lot of love for Kermit pretty much my whole life because of Sesame Street. And when I got into The Muppet Show, I didn't like Piggy because of the way she karate chopped and chased after Kermit. And I just thought she was annoying in general. I really didn't start to like her until after I saw the new movie. But even now, she still gets on my nerves sometimes.
Oh my GLOB!
No WONDER everyone hates Piggy at school but me.
It took me awhile to get used to Piggy. Watching The Muppet Show gave me a much larger appreciation for her, seeing how her character developed and grew throughout the series. In public appearances she's pretty one-dimensional, but in the series, there's a lot to her.
I love Piggy! She, Kermit, Fozzie, and Gonzo were teh right choices to make four of the "core" characters. They're the best!
THANK you Dominic!
No problem Jaz! I only hate one Muppet. Dr. Van Neuter. I'm sorry fans, but I only saw him in Muppets From Space, and NOBODY tries to remove one of my favorite Muppet's brains. I love Gonzo too much.
For me Kermit will always be more popular than miss piggy He has been and will most likely always be my favourite character and I think he is more well known than miss piggy
I like Dr. Phil. I've never gotten to see him all that much, but I like what I see.
The Muppet that I absolutely hate would be Pepe, while we're on the subject.
*hides in the dark at the thought that I worship a villain who put Piggy in jail*
