Bendy Muppets!!

They are what started it all for me. I was given a bendy miss piggy and kermit for my first birthday and have been hooked since!!

Bendy were indeed a UK company. The made many many licensed characters, which included the muppets, Sesame Street and fraggle rock.

The miss piggy you have pictured, doesn't look like the original dress. They made her in a white silk dress, blue dress with hat and feather and a much rarer white karate suit!! Kermit, animal and gonzo were also made in this size.
Mini muppets were made of kermit, piggy, Fozzie, Rowlf, animal. These were different in that the clothes were part of the mould in rubber and painted not loose fabric like the larger ones. Finally 3 rubber face puppets were made. Statler, Waldorf and Fozzie.

These are amazing characters. Unfortunately as they are rubber they often dry up and crack and crumble.
Production was moved from the UK to Malaysia and many of the moulds got broken, resulting in some characters being discontinued and very rare. Gonzo is the rarest of the large figures.

A small kermit grip kin toy was also made by Bendy.

Hope this helps.

Enjoy

Chris

Hi Karen,
Congratulations on winning the auction and being reunited with her at long last.
I can relate to this story a little. I have no luck when it comes to ebay auctions. I always end up getting out bid by someone when there's only a few seconds left for the auction to end. :mad: lol
I stayed up till 4AM once trying to win a 70's Miss Piggy puppet only to lose her at the last second to someone else .
Thankfully I saw one with a Buy It Now option and bought it on the spot and that's How I got my Miss Piggy Puppet which with a little help of a nice wig and a new body I made for her ended up looking beautiful :smile:
