The Three Little Pigs are the noted house-builders of fairy tale fame, who have frequently appeared on Sesame Street opposite their nemesis the Big Bad Wolf, most notably in Sesame Street News Flash segments. They are not to be confused with the Five Little Piggies, the quintet of toe counting fame who live elsewhere in the forest; like their fellow porkers, however, the Three Little Pigs have on occasion said "wee wee wee" all the way home.
The pigs have been performed by various puppeteers, including David Rudman, Kevin Clash, Frank Oz, Joey Mazzarino, Martin P. Robinson, Eric Jacobson, Jerry Nelson, Richard Hunt, Stephanie D'Abruzzo, Matt Vogel, and Noel MacNeal.
In 2008, the Three Pigs began making various background appearances on Plaza Sésamo.
- I.M. Pig and his associates show up in the Hurricane story arc in 2001, which also features the Big Bad Wolf as building inspector.
- In a 2005 episode, Baby Bear's story of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" explains that during the three bears' walk, he and his parents made pig noises that caused themselves to transform into the Three Little Pigs. When the Big Bad Wolf began chasing them, the "pigs" made bear noises, transforming themselves back into their true identities and catching the wolf off-guard.
- In the 2007 book My First Trip to the Farm, Abby Cadabby mistakes farm pigs for the Three Little Pigs.
