What made you decide to do a made-for-TV movie?

 

Kermit

 

We've done TV specials, but we've never done a TV movie. So it's a whole new thing.

 

Piggy

 

We owed it to our fans. I adore doing motion pictures, but many more lucky people get to see moi when I'm on television.

 

LHJ

 

Did you encounter any difficulties while you were filming?

 

Piggy

 

Just the usual intrigue that always happens on Hollywood productions. Vous know, "Who gets to be in a scene with moi? How long should the camera linger on moi's profile?"

 

Kermit

 

Well, we shot this one in Vancouver. It's not easy taking livestock across the border.

 

LHJ

 

How do you feel about the prospect of a new prime-time show next year?

 

Kermit

 

It makes sense. We're frogs, pigs and bears, and they're Fox.

 

Piggy

 

We're going for all the charm of the original but with a hot, contemporary feel. In other words, we're building the show around moi.

 

LHJ

 

Kermit, congratulations on your Walk of Fame star. Any responsibilities that come with that?

 

Kermit

 

You stand on a sidewalk and people take your picture.

 

LHJ

 

Piggy, are you jealous?

 

Piggy

 

Moi could never be jealous of dear Kermie. It's a sweet token of appreciation. As for moi, I'm holding out for a shrine.

 

LHJ

 

Piggy, all these years in show business and you don't look a day older. What's your secret?

 

Piggy

 

Thank vous. Moi's biggest beauty secret is this: When you start out perfect, don't change a thing.
