The Kermit and Piggy Story was released by Playhouse Video in 1985, as part of a series of compilations featuring songs and sketches from The Muppet Show. In this one hour special, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy share a romantic dinner for two while they remember highlights of their relationship on The Muppet Show.

The video is available for viewing at The Paley Center for Media.

Picture Segment Description
FRAME Kermit has invited Piggy to a nice evening out, where she slurps down her champagne. Although she has already had afternoon tea, she decides to have some light appetizers (rather than skip dinner entirely). Kermit makes a toast to "old times." Piggy questions how old he means and recalls when they first worked together, singing "Temptation." Piggy doesn't want to relive that memory, claiming it was before she personal appearance staff (or singing lessons, as Kermit points out).

(Episode 210: George Burns)
FRAME Kermit and Piggy have been served dinner - Kermit a slice of avocado and Piggy a large plate of spaghetti. She tells Kermit she can get a doggy bag if she doesn't finish it. This inspires Kermit to ask how Foo-Foo is. Piggy tells him she misses her daddy, though Kermit bristles at the notion. In between clips, Piggy offers some commentary.

Song "True Love"
(Episode 324: Cheryl Ladd)
FRAME Piggy sucks down an oyster and offers some to Kermit, who declines. He changes the subject and brings up Tony Randall's visit to the show, which Piggy does not wish to comment upon. Kermit comments in between each section.
Episode fragments Backstage scenes:
  • Tony Randall turns Miss Piggy into a stone statue
  • Tony Randall tries to sneak the stone piggy statue out of the theatre
  • Floyd cracks stone jokes

(Episode 513: Tony Randall)

FRAME Piggy didn't like watching those scenes at all, nearly losing her appetite (now having a full roasted chicken with bread). Kermit tries to cheer her up by reminding her that the situation turned out fine. Piggy reminds Kermit how she feels about him.
Song "Mad About the Frog"
(Episode 318: Leslie Uggams)
FRAME Kermit finishes his light salad, as Piggy is half-way through her chicken. He points out she's not always as affectionate as that number would suggest and brings up an appearance with Cheryl Ladd.
Song "I Enjoy Being a Girl" with Cheryl Ladd
(Episode 324: Cheryl Ladd)
FRAME Kermit tells Piggy that even in the beginning of their complicated relationship, he's found her "overly assertive."
Song "I Won't Dance"
(Episode 210: George Burns)
FRAME As the clip illustrates, Kermit finds himself often treated poorly by Piggy. Polishing off the final bits of chicken, she asserts she is always faithful to her frog, though they both know she has a weak spot for Christopher Reeve.

(Episode 418: Christopher Reeve)
FRAME Kermit offers to order dessert, so Piggy asks for a menu (as the thought of no dessert changes her mind about declining). She then points out that sometimes, Kermit deserves her wrath, such as during her calypso number.
Song "Pig Calypso"
(Episode 221: Bob Hope)
FRAME Kermit and Piggy, now with dessert, disagree over Kermit's comeuppance. He claims that type of situation happens all the time, such as when she allowed the pigs to take over the show. In between clips, Piggy claims it was just a joke, though Kermit feels very much the opposite.
Episode fragments The pigs take over the show:
  • The pigs capture Kermit
  • Miss Piggy talks to Kermit in the boiler room

(Episode 224: Cloris Leachman)

FRAME Kermit again believes that was definitive evidence of how he's treated, but Piggy believes Kermit equally treats her badly too. Piggy comments in between clips.
Episode fragments Backstage:

(Episode 502: Loretta Swit)

FRAME Kermit claims that even after that tiff, a few weeks later, Piggy (digging into a chocolate sundae) tried staged a ploy to get the two married.
Sketch The Wedding Sketch
(Episode 310: Marisa Berenson)
FRAME Although they've had some rough times, the two agree they've had good times too and decide to focus on those instead.
Song "Ukulele Lady"
(Episode 215: Lou Rawls)
FRAME Piggy thanks Kermit for the "little snack" and heads out for a pizza. Kermit, scanning the bill, stays behind and bemoans paying the tab by washing dishes.


  • Kermit states that the Wedding Sketch happened a few weeks after he fired Miss Piggy in episode 502. The sketch was actually from two seasons before this in episode 310.
