"Little Green Lie" is the fourteenth episode of the television series The Muppets.

Plot

Kermit's nephew Robin comes to visit the Muppets on the set of Up Late with Miss Piggy as his parents have recently spilt up. So in order to lift Robin's broken spirits, Kermit pretends that he and Miss Piggy are back together. However when Kermit, Piggy and Robin go play laser tag with Fozzie Bear and Scooter, the lie unfolds and the truth is revealed. Robin explains to Kermit and Miss Piggy that he is upset because everything is changing and feels as if nothing will be the same again. Kermit and Miss Piggy assure Robin that while things do change overtime and even though they are no longer together, they will never stop loving him, no matter what. Meanwhile Gonzo has gotten back together with Camilla who is now taking up all of his time, so Pepe and Rizzo must search for a replacement wingman.

Notes

  • This episode marks the only appearance of Robin the Frog on the series.
  • In reference to Kermit lying to Robin, Steve Whitmire said "I don't think Kermit would lie to him. I think that as Robin came to Kermit, he would say 'things happen, people go their separate ways, but that doesn't mean we don't care about you.' Kermit is too compassionate to lie to him to spare his feelings."[1]
