    Another Muppet Appearence on Hollywood Squares

    I just saw on the promos for Hollywood Squares that both Kermit and Piggy will appear on next week's shows. It looks like they'll be sharing the same square. She didn't speak, so I don't know who'll be performing her.

    Thanks for the great news! Yep, they are going to be on.

    Hollywood Squares' Web site has them listed as next week's guests.

    It will be great to see Kermit and Piggy interacting together all next week.

    It's amazing what you learn from those crazy profiles.

    Apparently, Miss Piggy was on "Sesame Street" and "Sam and Friends"!

    Good grief.

    Not another appearance on Hollywood Squares.

    I wonder if Kermit and Piggy will have any questions that don't deal with frogs, pigs, and Sesame Street (watch any Muppet appearance on Hollywood Squares, and each time they are picked, they have a question about frogs, pigs, or Sesame Street).

    I'm very close to watching that Family Fued appearance...

    Hey, Whoopie's leaving next season. Maybe one of the muppets could be the center square. Pepe needs something to do now...

    Absolutely not Frank

    I saw Monday's episode, and I would bet my Muppet Show Series 1 Figures that that was not Frank as Piggy. The voice was incredible, but not Frank. My bet would be Eric Jacobson.
    What did you guys think?

    Yeah, I'm 100% sure it was Eric. He DID do Piggy very well last night. But she was a little too tame ;)

    BTW, if anybody gets these show on tape let me know! I really want them and I can't record them (too busy) :mad:

    Finally I hear Miss Piggy definitely being performed by Eric Jacobson! He is fantastic. He doesn't sound quite like Oz's Piggy these days, rather is sounds closer to classic Piggy toward the end of The Muppet Show. I am very happy to see the pig in such capable hands..er hand. :) :) :)

    I was thinking the same thing.

    After Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, I thought that Eric's Piggy didn't sound like Frank's recent Piggy. On Thursday I had that episode of Hollywood Squares on in the background, not paying attention to it, when I realized that Eric's Piggy was more of a "classic Piggy".

    I am not much of a Piggy fan, but this makes me really happy...

    I have often felt that Frank's Piggy has sounded weird for the past decade. I hope he keeps working with the Muppets when he can, but I am no longer worried about his replacement. I just want to hear Fozzie now!

    Holy cow...I havent seen Piggy and Kermit together in awhile, and was blown away how 'they' are as current as ever...the chemistry, wow! This wasnt Oz??? WOW!!! You really have to hand it to the talented performers at JHC!

    So whats next on the Muppet tv appearence front?

    You heard about the Denny's commercials, right? I want to see what a non-Oz Fozzie would sound like.

    I think that the only thing wrong eith Eric's Piggy is the movement.

    But Maybe its becuase her head and body is one peice now ?

    See ya

    Or maybe because 2 performers are smooshed in that little square together...

    Even though I suppose they are used to that.

    I heard Eric's Fozzie's voice on totaly nascar last week, he dose a pretty good job. i'm sad too see Frank be replaced, but i'm happy his muppets will still live on and we can now see more of them because frank couldn't always be there.

    yeah i'm with you that now that frank is getting older, piggys voice has changed, that goes for fozzie's voice as well.

    hmm, but what about Animal and Sam now?

    Cookie Monster, Bert, Grover,Miss Piggy and Fozzie all have a new voice. I don't know, I guess Animals voice could be easier to replace because it's not like animal says a more then a few words at a time just a lot of gunting and yelling, but still. hmm, how about Sam?

    Zack)Rowlf, now they have to find a good voice for Dr Teeth,(his MFS voice was great! i think it was john) Janice and scooter, and will be all set!oh but they have to use the voice's i'm still waiting for Rowlf to say something on tv, how about a Denny's ad?;-)Dog.

    In Hollywood Squares this week, I tried to notice if Miss Piggy's head and body moved together and they really didn't. Maybe they changed the puppet. About difference of movement - Kermit still moves differently than Jim's version. It's just something we'll get used to, I guess. Eric's version of Piggy really rocks!


    Well Animal should be simple to voice. If Eric can do Cookie Monster so well, he can certainly do him. My only concern is that with all the work at SS he may have scheduling conficts. It worked out for Oz though.

    The same thing for Sam. If Eric's Fozzie is okay, I think Sam - a much easier voice - would be no problem. I am so happy that these characters are back. Now for Janice!!

    Im sooo happy! i taped Weds and Thurs shows OLNY i didn't have time for the others :( to bad but at lest i have the 1st time on tv of Eric's Piggyl ol i know my dad goes "Miss Piggy sounds a little diffrent" and i say its a new guy doing her named Eric somthing?. Yeah i think he may be the Voice of Piggy Fozzie, Sam etc in the NEW Christmas movie too, i just HOPE Janice and Dr. Teeth are in there talk and have FR on there too!, could SS be in there or No? .....Hey if somthing should ever happen to Eric i could do Piggy and Fozzie and Animal and Sam.

    I could have sworn that was Frank! Do you guys know for sure that it wasn't? If not, I take back every doubt I've ever thought about Eric doing Piggy. That was FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!

    I'm still a little upset/worried about most likely not being able to do Fozzie in the future, but as long as he's in the hands of a performer as good as Eric is with Piggy I think all those feelings will go away. Besides, it's easier for me to do an Animal voice than a Fozzie...

    BTW, does anyone know where I could find pictures of Eric?
