Issue #0: Pigs in Space: The Movie

Fozzie and Rizzo pitch the "Pigs in Space" movie to two studio executives who are gradually revealed to be Statler and Waldorf. Referred to by Rizzo as "Flash Gordon meets Animal Farm," the story also features references to Star Wars (include an appearance by Han Solo and Greedo) and visual nods to Futurama and Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Traditional Muppet Show sketches are incorporated into the storyline, including Muppet News Flash, a news report from Koozebane by Kermit the Frog, and Muppet Labs.
