Name me some people who would NOT...


Can you name me some people who would NOT be intimidated by Miss Piggy and who would stand up to her and fight her back and someone who would send HER running away.

As much as I LOVE Miss Piggy I've awlays wanted to see her get her ass whooped at least once, and see at least one person who would NOT be afraid of her.

These can be either REAL or ficticious people.

OK my picks are:

Granny from the Beverly Hillbillies

Thelma Harper from Mama's Family.

Eunice *Carol Burnett*, although I think she MIGHT back at the end.

Madea.

Resputia from Norbit.

Roseanne

OK those are my picks.


HANG UP AND DRIVE!!!

Judge Judy would scare the crap out of Miss Piggy.

Good one.

It's funny you NEVER see 2 people similar to Miss Piggy together.

Once when Carol Burnett was on the Muppet Show, I THOUGHT Piggy would meet her match b/c Carol always plays those short tempered roles, BUT Piggy and Carol didnt even interact.

Actually Florence Hinderson stood up to her, I mean there was a scene where Piggy attacked her and Florance fought her back.

HANG UP AND DRIVE!!!

Yeah, wouldn't you like to see Miss Piggy give a human a karate chop and nothing happens. The human stands there like, "What was that?" It is sort of ironic when that happens since Miss Piggy isn't a real person to begin with. Sorry to spoil that for anyone on here.

There was the ep where Christopher Reeve hosted. For the last number, because Miss Piggy has a crush on him, they do a duet together ("East of the Sun and West of the Moon"). At the end, when Kermit brings Reeve out for the final curtain call, Reeve jokes about not being able to lift Miss Piggy, and she hears that and tries to karate chop him. Except you hear a loud band, and Miss Piggy shakes from the effort and is unable to knock him down, and Kermit says, "Wow, you really are the Man of Steel."

I wished Carol Burnett had gotten a hold of her, Carol did slap around a few of the others if I remember.

Oh and I think Peter Griffin from Family Guy would take her down, he's already destroyed Lucy from Charlie Brown.

I think Samantha Jones from Sex and the City would hold her own against Miss Piggy, as too would Henry Higgins from My Fair Lady :p

I know this is like 2 years old but I just found it again. lol

But you never see 2 divas together fighting it out on a TV show, the formula usually is ONE diva bullying everyone else she feels is beneth her.

I'd like to see to divas fight it out once LOL

I think Wendy O Koopa from the Mario cartoons, Lucy from Charlie Brown, Miss Piggy, and Margarat from Dennis the Menace, should all fight to the death!

Question your prejudices.

She's already "gotten her due" a few times:

Christopher Reeve has already been mentioned.
When a strange electrical thing happened on Pigs in Space. Link tries to kiss her and she gets an electromagnetic field in an outline around her. Strangepork starts laughing and she karate chops him and the same thing happens. Their voices are electronically enhanced.

When Tony Randall is the guest star, he says some words backwards and turns Miss Piggy to stone (I think they were the names of the puppeteers or writers or something). She gets back to her normal form at the end of the show, and karate chops him as he's finishing a poem about Katmandu: (groaning in pain, then falling to the floor) "Little...yellow...pig!" The word that returns her to life is "Pigskin".

Granny from The Beverly Hillbillies would have roasted her on a spit and served her up to the cast! Even Kermit would have eaten her! In a song called, Pig Calypso, he sang, "Bib and napkin, knife and fork, is the only way that I'll touch pork!" Miss Piggy: Wha-a-a-a-t?! and karate chops him.

Two other guest stars who actually stood up to Miss Piggy were Bruce Forsyhte and Kaye Ballard.
Plus guest star Glenda Jackson got the best of her as well.
