Tough Pigs Anthology

Aug/Sept 2002


The Road to Hollywood


   What's your favorite moment from The Muppet Movie


   Is it the opening, when Kermit leaves his bait shop to seek fame and fortune? The part where Miss Piggy tells Kermit that her aunt is sick? The part where Mount Rushmore talks? Or the Henry Kissinger cameo? 


   Well, of course you don't remember those parts of the movie, cause they're not in the movie... but they could have been. This month in the Tough Pigs Anthology: The Muppet Movie you never knew.
