It seems likely that "Pi-zhay" is a tip of the hat to Star Trek: The Next Generation's Jean-Luc Picard, who also had a French surname that was rarely pronounced as it would be in French (I think the d would be silent). But I'm not sure how best to note that in the article, as it's just my surmise (and I haven't seen the "Deep Dish Nine" sketches since they aired). —Josiah Rowe 02:53, October 7, 2010 (UTC)


What's up with Pighead being pronounced "Pee-Zhay"? Was it mentioned on the show or something? I have seen every episode, but I don't remember any lines about the pronounciation of his name. Ever since I got the internet I've seen lists that mention this (of course, when I first got the internet, I hadn't seen the garth brookes episode, which was his first appearance, and though I have seen that episode since then, I don't remember any "pee-zhay" lines). --Minor muppetz 15:55, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

My memory is of Piggy or Craniac calling him "Pighead" in an early sketch, and he corrects them. But I haven't gone through my MT tapes in a while, so I couldn't tell you which one it's from. -Ryan R PrawnRR 19:00, 14 February 2006 (UTC)
I remember it as well, but none of my episode copies have the scene. Maybe the English versions use a different take, or cut it for time? -- MuppetDude 17:26, 8 May 2006 (UTC)
