A Pig in Paris

France is a European nation famed for its cuisine, the Eiffel Tower, and a populace stereotypically marked by snooty accents and moustaches. The country donated the Statue of Liberty to the United States of America. Miss Piggy has famously affected a French accent and a Parisian sophistication. In Muppet Treasure Island, an indignant Benjamina Gunn (played by Piggy) claims her mother came all the way from France for the wedding to Captain Abraham Smollett.

  • The French language is spoken in Canada and figured in some early Sesame Street episodes and quite heavily in Sesame Park, particularly through Louis, the Francophone Otter.
  • Promoting Muppets Most Wanted, Kermit says they skipped France on their European tour in the film. "Two good reasons. [He glances down at his legs] These babies, right here." Referencing the French's penchant for frog leg cuisine.[1]
