RIP Judge Joseph Wapner

Filed under: News — Tags: — Ryan Roe @ 1:00 pm

As reported by The New York Times and others, Judge Joseph A. Wapner died on Sunday at the age on 97. Wapner was a real judge, but he was of course best-known as the star of the TV show The People’s Court.  That’s what led to his Muppet connection: In 1996 he appeared on the Whoopi Goldberg episode of Muppets Tonight, in a sketch based on the premise that before she was famous, Whoopi Goldberg took Miss Piggy to court over some hairstyling trouble.

The sketch can be seen around the 3:30 mark of this video:
