Q: My best friend says Miss Piggy was modeled after Bette Midler I say her inspiration was Barbra Streisand. Who’s right?–M.H. Davies, Salt Lake City, Utah

A: Sorry, you’re both wrong. “Miss Piggy was not modeled after anyone,” insists our source at Jim Henson Productions, who adds that the conceited chanteuse “gets offended if we talk about her early years.” Suffice it to say. Miss Piggy ^ —— never took her clothes off to get a job. Since she was discovered in the chorus of the Muppet Show in 1976 and given voice by Frank OZ. Miss Piggy has starred in everything from movies to ads for low-fat potato chips.
