NEWS UPDATE: September 6, 2012
Yesterday afternoon, Miss Piggy revealed via the Muppets Studio’s official Twitter account, that she was starting her own official Twitter account @RealMissPiggy! So far, the divine Miss P. has racked up over 4,000 followers in less than 24 hours. Most of her tweets so far have been about her appearance at Fashion’s Night Out in New York City tonight. Miss Piggy appeared at FNO last year as well and made a huge splash, so one has to assume her splash tonight will be just as great. Piggy has tweeted the following three pictures as she gets ready for tonight’s events, but keep checking her Twitter feed for more that will surely be coming!
The entire series of the classic Dinosaurs is now available for streaming on Netflix! All four seasons of the hilarious prehistoric comedy from The Jim Henson Company and Disney can now be watched anytime you want if you have Netflix, which is awesome. Currently all of Fraggle Rock is available for streaming on Netflix as well, so it’s encouraging to see more and more Henson projects make their way to instant streaming. Maybe one day we’ll see The Muppet Show on Netflix as well!
