    I heard Miss Piggy gets fired on this one. Could someone explain in detail to me what happened? And how she was hired back? :mad:

    Another note: that's the angriest I've ever seen Kermit.

    That particular episode seemed to mark a slight change in the relationship between Kermit and Miss Piggy.Prior to that episode,Miss Piggy had been quite a bully towards Kermit throughout the series.Aside from her displays of jealousy,she did occasional mean and nasty things to him here and there.One example was during Cheryl Ladd's episode in Season 3,where her and Miss Piggy gave a musical performance in her dressing room.Cheryl Ladd displayed karate using a stuffed dummy,while Miss Piggy used poor Kermit to display her famous karate chops.He had so often been the brunt of her hostility over the course of the series.But inspite of how impossible it became for him to fire her during Loretta Swit's episode,her bullying him appears to have stopped ever since that episode.He did get a karate chop from her in The Muppets Take Manhatten and Muppet Treasure Island,but under slightly different circumstances. :) :mad:

    In that episode have Miss Piggy made a false coverstory about that Kermit and her are secretly married in Vegas.Thats whey she was fired.

    I hadn't noticed that, but since you mentioned it, Piggy did appear to be a bit less agressive towards Kermit in season five (well except maybe in the Linda Ronstadt episode where she locks him in the trunk). No offense to whoever wrote the Kermitage guide, but I feel that doesn't go into quite as much detail as I would like to see. I'm still kind of fuzzy as to how she was hired back. I wish I could get that one on video or DVD somewhere.

    Loretta makes them sing the together song at the end of the Pigs In Space sketch. They get all mushy then sing some more..blackout

    Okay, I thought I heard that on MC radio. I'd still like to see the episode some time. It sounds really good. Anyway, thanks for the info.

    At least parts of it are on "the Kermit and Piggy Story", one of the ten videos
    they made in 1985. :) :mad:
