To Kermit - Rainbow Connection has been covered so many times. Which version (other than your own - which is the best obviously) is your personal favourite?

southeastastra Fri 21-Mar-14 20:15:49

my son (12) and I absolutely loved the last muppet movie. why do you think the muppets have always been so appealing? Also how is pepe the prawn and does he get a starring role in your new film.

Is Animal married/attached?

Trojanhouse Fri 21-Mar-14 21:16:47

Miss Piggy you are defo the most beautiful woman in the world
Do you think that old Kermit is punching above his weight?
Has Kermit proposed to you.?
If he likes it he should have put a huge diamond ring on it, in the words of. Beyoncé

Miss PIGGY I saw you inyour pink cadillac with chauffeur in florida...how do you keepyour passion for Kermit so strong...he can be quite dismissive?!

Spirael Fri 21-Mar-14 21:31:10

Hi Kermit and Miss Piggy! My question is... If there was a film made about you, which actor or actress would you want to play your part? wink

<whispers> ''phenomena'' grin

My question is, did you have to use stunt doubles for the movie, or were you both able to do your own stunts?

I'm really looking forward to seeing it by the way, I think you're both awesome!

CambridgeBlue Fri 21-Mar-14 22:32:25

Wow, officially the best web chat ever smile Been a huge Muppets fan since the 70s <shows age>

Kermit - no question but just wanted to say I think you're one of the nicest puppets people in showbiz

Miss Piggy <we're not worthy> I've always admired your fabulous sense of style. Who are your fashion icons and who do you think doesn't quite cut it?

PS am I the only one who can't hear certain songs without thinking of the Muppets? eg Crocodile Rock (chorus of Muppets: 'laaaah, la la la la la') and Don't Go Breaking My Heart (Miss Piggy)

CambridgeBlue Fri 21-Mar-14 22:33:15

PPS if Animal isn't attached give him my number smile

scrappydappydoo Fri 21-Mar-14 23:33:35

Best webchat ever!!

As much as I love your movies nothing quite beats The Muppet Show every week on tv - are there any plans for a revival?

(and can you tell your friends on Sesame street that I love their parodies and its a shame we don't get to see SS on tv over here)

SarniaCherie Fri 21-Mar-14 23:39:44

You've performed alongside many of the world's greatest stars. Who were your favourites?

I also feel I should confess that when I was 3 I threw my brother's Fozzie Bear Toy car down the stairs and broke it. My Miss Piggy remained hidden from him for some time after so he could not exact his revenge. grin

LeonardWentToTheOffice Sat 22-Mar-14 00:00:37

Kermit. I Love you. Will you marry me? Or sorry does that sound stalky psycho? I'm not. Honestly. I have an 11 year old son who would also love you to come live with us xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

(Pleeeeeeease)

Kudzugirl Sat 22-Mar-14 08:24:45

Hello Miss Piggy

Gwyneth Paltrow says she 'works a 1970's vibe' regarding her lady garden.

Are you a 70's girl at heart too? Or do you have a Vajazzle?

Kudzugirl Sat 22-Mar-14 08:25:29

Bondbasildon

That is hilarious grin

Kudzugirl Sat 22-Mar-14 08:28:07

One last question to Kermit

What is Robin up to lately? And have you campaigned against the mass genocide that goes on in ponds up and down the country in the Spring? Our frogspawn gets decimated by various mass murdering animals each year and I wondered whether some kind of froggie UN Peacekeeping Corps would help?

Maybe you could bring a guitar, sit by the pond and sing KumBaya to them all

<peace n love>

YoniMatopoeia Sat 22-Mar-14 09:12:34

What is your favourite biscuit?

YoniMatopoeia Sat 22-Mar-14 09:14:45

Question from DD (7)

Will there be new Muppets in the Muppet band ?

I have to declare a crush on Animal at this point...

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

everythingiknow Sat 22-Mar-14 10:20:49

I have two questions for this iconic couple:

Kermit, is it true that you were once invited to speak at the Oxford Union? (Or was that you, Miss Piggy?)

And, Kermit, I have always wondered why your voice sounds exactly like that of Bill Gates - are you by any chance related?

Please could you also pass on my special greetings and respect to Animal? (who holds a very special place in my heart) - but please don't mention the trigger word.....Thank you so much.

cuppachai Sat 22-Mar-14 10:35:30

Scream!!!! DS (Oscar, 7) is your biggest fan! He even held a wedding ceremony for Kermit and Piggy in our living room. He wants to ask: did you enjoy Saturday night takeaway with Ant and Dec and can you do a Geordie accent? grin

Kermit, after seeing the interview with Miss Piggy and the divine Mr Thomas Hiddleston in which there was such undeniable chemistry, how did you deal with his underwear cavortings in your latest film? If you send him back to London I promise to keep him under strict lock and key so he can't bother you again..

SaggyAndLucy Sat 22-Mar-14 11:37:10

Miss Piggy I love you're rule about 'never eating more than you can carry'
Do you have any other good philosophies for life?

SaggyAndLucy Sat 22-Mar-14 11:37:54

Kermit do you and Fozzy ever start the day with a nice bacon sandwich. wink

ThePost Sat 22-Mar-14 11:52:59

Miss Piggy, who (apart from the wonderful Kermit T. Frog) has been your favourite leading man during your stellar career?

SheherazadeSchadenfreude Sat 22-Mar-14 11:54:15

Miss Piggy I have long admired your hair, and we share a similar physique. I yearn to be as glamorous as you, but I am ginger. I can't rock blonde like you do, I just get more ginger. My question is, can you still be glamorous and ginger, or is that, in your view, a step too far.

I thank you.
