"Frankly, Miss Piggy, I don't give a hoot."

Gone with the Wind is a 1939 American film classic adapted from the novel of the same name, published in 1936.


  • In 1978, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy appeared at the ribbon cutting ceremony of the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta dressed as Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara. A photo of Kermit and Piggy as Rhett and Scarlett was also presented as a gift and is on prominent display at the center.
  • A promotional poster for The Muppet Movie featured Kermit and Miss Piggy in period costume with the quote "Frankly, Miss Piggy, I don't give a hoot," a reference to the line "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn".
  • In The Muppet Movie, Kermit notes that he was almost "gone with the Shwinn" when he narrowly avoided being run over by a steamroller in a biking accident.
  • In 1988, Imaginations released a set of die-cast figures called "Gone With the Weird," featuring the Muppet characters in parody roles from the film.
  • In the Muppet Babies episode "Operators Are Standing By," Baby Piggy tries catching her "favorite film, Gone with the Wind" on TV. When Skeeter imagines herself on a movie set, ready to perform dangerous stunts, Piggy hijacks the scene as Scarlett O'Hara and, despite everyone's warnings, insists on performing, only to find herself doing Skeeter's dangerous stunts (like being shot from a cannon and being crammed into an exploding box).
  • In the Muppet Babies episode "A Punch Line to the Tummy," a simple parody poster with the words "Gone With the Breeze" can be seen hanging on a wall in Gonzo's office.
  • Piggy states in an interview that if she were to play Scarlett, she'd "never go hungry again."
  • A Monsterpiece Theater theater segment parodies the movie, with a female frog as Scarlet and Kermit playing Rhett.
  • In an Ernie and Bert sketch, Bert's latest pigeon book features the line "I'll think about it tomorrow. another day.", a direct quote from the movie.
  • In Episode 2171 of Sesame Street, a tiny worm movie theater near Oscar's can plays "Gone with the Worm."
  • In the Inner Tube pilot, Kermit shows samples from the several hundred channels they have to offer. The sample from the Kitchen Utensil channel shows a knife and eggbeater re-enacting a scene from the movie ("Frankly my dear, I don't give a spoon!").
  • In 2012, Cookie Monster tweeted that Gone with the Crumbs was one of his favorite films.
  • A commercial heard on the radio in the Sesame Street CD-ROM Letters advertises the movie, Gone with the W.
