Miss Piggy Finally Shoots Down A Popular Muppets Legend About Yoda


A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, it made sense that Miss Piggy was related to Yoda. In fact, it was likely that she was his mama.

George Lucas once said that Yoda was the illegitimate child of Piggy and Kermit, Frank Oz used to voice both Piggy and Yoda, and there are even photos of the three characters together on the “Star Wars” set: 

But what does Piggy have to say? 

The Huffington Post caught up with her at the Kate Spade offices to find out. There, she finally addressed the “Star Wars” connection, saying, “Comment on rumors, I will not!”

She then burst out laughing, adding, “No that is stupid. That is stilly. What are you saying?”

She did admit Yoda was kind of handsome, though. (Who could blame her? Dude’s hot.)

However, she says she’s clearly not his mom, and it just comes down to looks. 

“Look at those ears. They’re not my ears. Kermit doesn’t even have ears. So I have no idea. I have no idea who his parents are,” said Piggy.

In addition to Yoda, Piggy opened up about her new #MissAdventure video with Zosia Mamet for Kate Spade, discussed what it was like to save Tony Bennett from falling off a float at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and totally ripped apart my style.

Thanks for the confidence boost, Miss Piggy.
