    This Tuesday on CBS, the American Film Institute counts down the 100 Most Romantic Movies Of All Time in "AFI's 100 Years...100 Passions".

    Among the commentators:

    Faye Dunaway
    Ali MacGraw
    Mary Tyler Moore
    Hugh Jackman
    Daryl Hannah
    Jennifer Love Hewitt
    Danny Aiello
    Janet Jackson
    Kathleen Turner
    Harrison Ford
    John Leguizamo

    All well and good, you say, but where do the Muppets figure in?

    I'll tell you: Kermit The Frog and Miss Piggy will be making comments about various movies in the countdown as well.

    So, all Muppet fans, set your VCRs for another Muppet appearance:

    "AFI's 100 Years...100 Passions", Tuesday Night, 8:00 PM Eastern on CBS.

    Thanks for the info. Adding it now to the front of the site...

    Isn't it great seeing Kermit and Piggy TOGETHER regularly again? One of the major things missing the past ten years has been the interaction between these two.

    Just a reminder, don't forget to watch this special tonight on CBS for Kermit and Miss Piggy.

    Let us know what you think about the appearance.

    Their appearence was great! But alas, all too brief!

    (don't even get me started about the list of movies picked...)

    CRAP! I didn't read this post until today! Could someone elaborate as to how Kermit and Piggy were featured? What movies did they comment on, what did they say, how long was their screen time?

    What I remember about the show is that Kermit and Piggy were talking back and forth about "Breakfast at Tiffanys". Then, Kermit said something to the effect of "If Piggy was in this movie, they'd have to call it breakfast, lunch and dinner at Tiffanys". And Piggy looks at him intently and gives Kermit a big karate chop, "Hiii-yaaaaaaaaaaaa!"

    There might have been more but that's all I saw.

    Sorry you missed the post Scott. If you see a "yellow" indicator on the front page next to the TV Appearances section be sure to check it out. Sometimes we know several days in advance about an appearance and other times it's just a few minutes.

    Hey Phil- Yes, that's right, the Breakfast at Tiffany's comment. :) That was their only appearence on the whole show, I'd say it was about a minute, tops.

    Very sad

    Yes, regretably, I watched the entire show hoping and waiting for another appearence, but alas, the "Breakfast at Tiffianys" comment was their first and last.

    But anyways...yes. forgot what else I was going to say...

    Oh boo :( I wonder how much material Steve and Eric filmed for it? I'd love to see the outtakes.

    Say, wouldn't that make for a great special? "Miss Piggy and Kermit At the Movies" - all comentating by the frog and the pig. It could be a prime time 45 minute special!

    I watched the whole thing to and bored myself for that one little clip, it was nice though. Hey and Beauty & the Beast and Lady & and Tramp were the only two animated flims that made it in.

    I was up ALL night watching it, and I musta missed them. Drat!!! All I saw was some woman with chubby cheeks and a slender stick for a nose. If Jerry Stiller and Tim Conway weren't on it, I wouldn't have even stayed up to see if they were on again!
