Please ask about Dolly!

Cocolepew Mon 24-Mar-14 20:50:07

10!?! One better have been mine <glares>

RachelMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 24-Mar-14 19:16:54

Thanks so much to everyone for the questions - we had a good giggle this morning reading through them all. We selected ten which we put to Ms P and Kermie earlier today (and we're still high from the thrill of it) and will have the video up on the site later this week.

Dear Miss Piggy,

You have inspired me for about 34 years. Thanks for being a truly awesome role model!

Would you please talk about little about your relationship to Dolly Parton?

Can I ask another? Going back a few years, but what was Debbie Harry like to work with? I remember the episode she was on very clearly.

Also DD wants to know if Miss Piggy loves Kermit so much how then she can't tell the difference between him and the baddie in the film? (She is basing this on the trailers for the film)

KermitLover Mon 24-Mar-14 08:36:05

Moonandsixpence the little one are always pigs when girls and frogs when boys... like in Muppet Christmas Carol

KermitLover Mon 24-Mar-14 08:34:23

Firstly, I LOVE YOU BOTH.

Secondly, to Kermit, (I have name changed so as not to out myself)...but could you possibly congratulate my husband who is a massive fan on our new baby?

My husband's name is Dan and our new baby is Winston. This would be possibly the best thing that ever happened to him.

Thank you in advance,
Kermitlover

Dear Miss Piggy and Kermit - My 11-year old daughter (a BIG fan of the Muppets) was in a silly mood this morning - she's wondering, if you guys got together and had little ones, what would they look like? Would they be tadlets (tadpoles/piglets) or pigpoles? grin And what would their names be?

Thanks! We can't wait to see the new movie!

I don't, Conyo, and I'm guessing you don't live in a seaside village beginning with P? Coincidence then grin.

runawaysimba Mon 24-Mar-14 06:33:04

So exciting! Kermit, my daughter was born 9 weeks early and since she was in her incubator I've sung "The Rainbow Connection" to her. Now she's three, she loves the song and wants to play the banjo like you. No question, just wanted to tell you how special you are to us.

LineRunner Mon 24-Mar-14 00:56:53

Miss Piggy

Do you like British accents? Which is your favourite?

TheseAreTheJokesFolks Mon 24-Mar-14 00:55:41

Seeing as Ricky Gervais got cut from your last movie how come he was cast in this one?
Do you think there would have been a renaissance without the Forgetting Sarah Marshall movie and how much do you owe Jason segel?
How come I didn't see any Muppets at the Oscars when man or Muppet won best song?
How much does a movie PR person get paid for masquerading as a sleb on Reddit AMAs or impersonating characters on mumsnet and how did you get into character today? Sock puppetry is banned here btw...!

elQuintoConyo Sun 23-Mar-14 23:14:55

Do you have the same name as a type of Scottish meat pie Empress ?
My mn name is Spanish. There's a good reason for that...

TSSDNCOP Sun 23-Mar-14 22:31:50

Kermit do you feel it is liberating to just wear a green ruff? It's certainly a statement - what made you choose it?

Obviously for acting roles you do occasionally go cloth, I particularly like your natty Trench which I assume is Burberry.

Do you prefer to dress up or be nekkid (bar the ruff)?

PS I love you more than my DH xxx

<narrows eyes> ElQuintoCoyo, are you my DSis?

elQuintoConyo Sun 23-Mar-14 21:22:45

We had a green 2CV and nicknamed it Kermit when I was a small person back in the 70s grin so you're very close to my heart.
I'd like to ask: what was Micheal Caine like to work with? And what other classics would you like to make as films? A Tale of Two Muppets? A Midsummer Night's Pig? Dude, Where's My Bacon?

OonaghBhuna Sun 23-Mar-14 19:15:28

My other daughter Lucy would like to know what are your favourite songs that you have sung together? Lucy is also a massive fan and cant wait for the movie!!! xxx

bookofkittens Sun 23-Mar-14 19:14:28

Dear Miss Piggy,

I have admired your wardrobe since I was a small child. Who designs your clothes ? Will they ever be available in a larger size ?

OonaghBhuna Sun 23-Mar-14 19:14:03

Hello Miss Piggy and Kermit, Emily my daughter would like to know what you do most of the day. What would be your typical routine? We cant wait for the film we are all massive fans xxx
