September 5, 1976

On September 5, 1976, Jim Henson’s “The Muppet Show” premiered on television. This show featured a talking pig puppet with the hots for a talking frog puppet. And with that, a new American fetish was born. Kermit and Miss Piggy fan fiction.

There are also Kermit and Fozzie shippers... or so I’ve heard. If I were into such things, which I’m definitely not, in my canon, it would be Kermit and Piggy all the way. Cast your vote by Sharing Twisted-History.
