King Kong is a giant ape who became a very big movie star with his 1933 film, followed by a handful of sequels and remakes including a Japanese movie called King Kong vs. Godzilla where King Kong fights Godzilla.

He has been spoofed in numerous Muppet productions, his iconic climb up the Empire State Building being a frequent target of parody.


  • The same theme park incarnation of Kong was featured in Muppet Magazine issue 21, in a feature where Miss Piggy tours Universal Studios.
