Categories: Podcasts

This week, I’m joined by the longtime Muppet staff writer Craig Shemin, to talk about what it was like writing Miss Piggy scripts for Frank Oz. Craig explains Frank’s rules for how to treat Piggy, and we go behind the scenes of some of the Pig’s most outrageous appearances with Matt Lauer, Martha Stewart, Jay Leno, and Regis and Kathie Lee.

Plus: CD-Rom games, Project Runway, how Piggy became a diva, and why Kermit and Miss Piggy are still broken up! Don’t miss this one!
