Miss Piggy on Spark Tank

Shark Tank is an American reality television series that premiered on ABC in 2009. The show features aspiring entrepreneurs as they make business presentations to a panel of five "shark" investors, who then choose whether to invest as business partners. The reality show format originated in Japan and is known internationally as Dragon's Den.

On the December 11th, 2013 episode of the Canadian Dragon's Den (predating Shark Tank by three years), an entrepreneur is demonstrating his packaging, similar to an over-sized Advent calendar. Investor Kevin O'Leary (who serves the same role on Shark Tank), known sarcastically as "Mr. Wonderful", is given an Oscar the Grouch t-shirt as a reference to his personality.
