Miss Piggy (voiced by Frank Oz until 2001, when Eric Jacobson took over) ultimately became the lead songbird and a central player on the program. In 1979, the golden-tressed diva realized her ambition of silver-screen success when she appeared in The Muppet Movie alongside her beloved "Kermie."
Miss Piggy has since racked up a number of other film credits, including The Great Muppet Caper (1981), The Muppets Take Manhattan (1984), Muppet Treasure Island (1996) and Muppets from Space (1999).
After deciding to pursue a career in acting, Kermit the Frog goes on a cross-country trek to find fame in Hollywood. Along the way, he meets Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy, Gonzo and the rest of the Muppets cast, and voilà, the Muppets are born.
