Lydia Muppet Show
DEBUT 1976
DESIGN Jim Henson tattoos

Lydia is a bespectacled, redheaded pig whose most prominent appearance on The Muppet Show was in episode 102, where she danced along to Kermit the Frog's rendition of "Lydia, the Tattooed Lady."

Lydia's body is almost entirely covered in tattoos (which were drawn by Jim Henson).[1] They feature prominently in her dance routine, a style similar to belly dancing with body gyrating and twerking. Her moves are considered sensual, as Miss Piggy takes issue with Kermit having enjoyed the performance as evidenced by a punch in the face.

Lydia made one more appearance on The Muppet Show (without her glasses), where she was performed by Abby Hadfield in "The Entertainer" as part of her audition in episode 203.

Unlike the other pigs on The Muppet Show, Lydia had hooves instead of hands. Her tattoos include "Washington Crossing the Delaware", "the Battle of Waterloo", the Eiffel Tower, the Wreck of the Hesperus, an American flag, and Albert Einstein's equation for relativity.
