You aren't alone After years of the on and off again romance, I also felt that they were moving in the right direction and that they finally had resolved the "does he" or "doesn't he" need/want her angle. He does, she does.The one thing that bothers me is the fact that they went through a lot to get Kermit and Piggy together in the last two movies.
One of the major plot points in the Muppets was Kermit learning that he needed Piggy. In Most Wanted the plot point was that Piggy, and the rest of the Muppets need Kermit.
So to me it seems like a waste of time to have invested all that time in doing that if they where going to break up months later.
Maybe it's just me, but I thought that after Most Wanted Kermit and Piggy's relationship was stronger then it ever was. Or am I wrong in thinking that?
Well some folks around here would debate that Floyd and Janice are a tight couple.You aren't alone After years of the on and off again romance, I also felt that they were moving in the right direction and that they finally had resolved the "does he" or "doesn't he" need/want her angle.

For them to backpedal now, seems like they are going in the wrong direction. I don't want to be 80 when this is finally settled upon once and for all. Just like Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald and Daisy Duck, Kermit and Piggy are "the" established couple for the Muppets.
You'll never see a Fozzie/Piggy or Kermit/Janice pairing because even little kids know who goes with who.
I don't know of any other romantic pairing in the Muppets that is that strong and ingrained. If I'm wrong, please show me. You can't break up the only couple and just expect people to not remark on it.
Kermit + Piggy = Happiness. 4-ever.
While that may be true, it is not an obvious pairing. They would not be considered the signature couple of the Muppets. Neither is Gonzo/Camilla.Well some folks around here would debate that Floyd and Janice are a tight couple.
Off topic and completely honest here, I never liked the "I've seen everything...BOOM." suicide joke. I love me some vintage cartoons, I find them the highest quality in animation history. But some of the things that passed at humor were very questionable. Stuff they would do in an adult cartoon today, but without the irony and the "jeez, that's horrible" subtext. And the worst part is, the suicide joke was the favorite punchline of late 50's Paramount cartoons. There's a LOT in the Horton Hears a Who movie I feel didn't work and was obviously just padding (even Chuck Jones had trouble, and animation was even reused). But considering the source material, the suicidal Lorre Fish is a might jarring (not that Seuss wouldn't have done edgy humor in a Snafu picture, but this is a kid's book). And the useless Katherine Hepburn impersonation of the bird gets very obnoxious after a while, ruhlly it does. But danged if it isn't some great looking Bob Clampett animation.Which would never happen today. The oh so useful MPAA would have a heart attack, lol.
