Brooke Shields (b. 1965) was the guest star on The Muppet Show in episode 506. She holds the record for being the youngest guest star on the show; she was 14 years old at the time.

Her appearance was filmed in April 1980 following the release of a series of comedy movies in 1979: Tilt in April, Wanda Nevada in May, and Just You and Me, Kid (with George Burns) in July. Her Muppet Show episode premiered in the fall, just months after the debut of The Blue Lagoon.

The following year, Shields attended a "homecoming party" to "celebrate the return of major television production in Manhattan" where she mingled with Big Bird, as well as the cast of the sitcom Love, Sidney (Tony Randall, Swoosie Kurtz, and Kaleena Kiff).

In 1984, she made a cameo appearance as a patron of Pete's Luncheonette in the film The Muppets Take Manhattan where she shares a brief scene with Miss Piggy and Masterson Rat.

For Muppet Magazine, she appeared on the cover of the Summer 1984 issue and featured as a special guest reporter, interviewing Kermit the Frog.

She also appeared in a Christmas special with Kermit where they discuss all the magazine covers she's been featured on. A very brief clip appears in the 2023 Hulu documentary Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields, but its origins are unknown.

Shields contributed a "Vegetable Health Soup" recipe for Miss Piggy's 1996 cookbook, In the Kitchen with Miss Piggy.

When it appeared as though Miss Piggy was not going to make it to The Muppet Show Live in 2001, Shields appeared on stage with Kermit donning a pig nose, blond wig, feather boa, and purple gloves to sing "Never Before, Never Again" with "Kermie" in Piggy's stead. That same year, Shields appeared with Kermit on stage to read portions of Once Upon a Fairy Tale.

On December 1, 2008, she and other celebrities attended a promotional event for The Muppet Whatnot Workshop designing her own Whatnot puppet.

While on Watch What Happens Live in 2014, Shields appeared alongside Elmo, Grover, and Russell Brand.

Shields took a selfie with Elmo, Rosita, and Abby Cadabby when the Sesame Street Muppets visited the SiriusXM studios on January 13, 2016.[1]

Shields starred as Susan Keane on the sitcom Suddenly Susan (1996-2000) and had guest roles on Quantum Leap, Tales from the Crypt, Friends, Hannah Montana, and The Middle. She also provided the voice of Mother Bear in one of the Henson Company's Unstable Fables DVDs. Between the years of 1980 and 1985, she appeared on more than 300 magazine covers internationally.
