DEBUT 1977

Kermit the Pig is a green pig with features similar to Kermit the Frog's, including a collar and ping pong ball eyes.

When the pigs take over The Muppet Show in episode 224, Kermit the Pig takes over as the show's host, and claims to be a frog. When guest star Cloris Leachman doesn't believe him, he ribbits for her convincingly.

By the end of the show, the real Kermit has taken control of the show again -- but Kermit the Pig shows up in the closing to say goodbye to the audience. Kermit, shocked at seeing his replacement, pushes the pig offstage.
