Miss Piggy/Mrs. Slocombe – Separated at Birth?

I always enjoyed the Muppets, both Sesame Street with The Count and company and The Muppet Show with the two old men in the balcony and a lot of mayhem, as in Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem band as well as comic scenes each night. My the Muppets go on forever!

I was familiar with Mis Piggy, who made me laugh out loud, when I caught an episode of the imported BBC’s  Are You Being Served? in the 1990s. The middle-aged saleswoman with the purple hair and over-the-top facial expressions, screaming, and aggression was Piggy all over again. I was stunned then and have watched every episode of all the series at least twice. Now I wish Disney would film a movie with Muppets filling the roles of Grace Brothers Department Store staff.  The more I see of Mrs. Slocome, the more I think of Miss Piggy.

They must be twins. What do you think?
