The first draft of the puppet was a blonde, beady-eyed pig who appeared briefly in the 1975 pilot special, "The Muppet Show: Sex and Violence," in a sketch called "Return to Beneath the Planet of the Pigs." She was unnamed in that show, but by the time "The Muppet Show" began in 1976, she was recognizably Miss Piggy -- sporting large blue eyes, wearing a flowing white gown, and jumping on Kermit, the love of her life. The fact that she was intended to be a bit player is reflected in her formulaic name, which was patterned after Miss Mousey, Kermit's love interest in the 1974 special "The Muppet Valentine Show."



Miss Piggy soon developed into a major character, as the Muppet creators recognized that a lovelorn pig could be more than a one-note running gag. Frank Oz has said that while Fozzie Bear is a two-dimensional character, and Animal has no dimensions, Miss Piggy is one of the few Muppets to be fully realized in three dimensions.



Eventually in the films, Kermit started returning her affections and (unwittingly) married her in The Muppets Take Manhattan—although subsequent events suggest that it was only their characters in the movie that married, and that their relationship is really the same as ever.



Miss Piggy has a pet poodle, Foo-Foo.



Miss Piggy recently starred in the TV-movie "The Muppets' Wizard of Oz," appearing as all four witches.

Miss Piggy began as a minor character in The Muppet Show TV series, but gradually developed into one of the central characters of the show.



Miss Piggy is a pig who is absolutely convinced she is destined for stardom and nothing is going to stand her way. Her public face tries to be the soul of feminine charm, but can instantly fly into a violent rage whenever she thinks she's insulted or thwarted. Kermit the Frog has learned this all too well since he is the usual target for her Karate Chops. When she isn't sending him flying through the air, she is often smothering him in (unwanted) kisses.



Eventually in the films, Kermit started returning her affections and (unwittingly) married her in The Muppets Take Manhattan - although subsequent events suggest that it was only their characters in the movie that married, and that their relationship is really the same as ever.



It is said that Jim Henson based the character on the American actress Loretta Swit.
