The Three Little Pigs in Episode 4280

The Three Little Pigs are the noted house-builders of fairy tale fame, who have frequently appeared on Sesame Street opposite their nemesis the Big Bad Wolf, most notably in Sesame Street News Flash segments. They are not to be confused with the Five Little Piggies, the quintet of toe counting fame who live elsewhere in the forest; like their fellow porkers, however, the Three Little Pigs have on occasion said "wee wee wee" all the way home.

The pigs also appeared in The Best of Kermit on Sesame Street, constantly interrupting Grover's poem about Kermit.

In a 2007 episode, Abby Cadabby calls the three little pigs on her "cell wand," at which point they reveal their names to be Iggy, Wiggy, and Melvin. Subsequent appearances often included a female pig as part of the previously all-male trio.

The pigs have been performed by various puppeteers, including David Rudman, Kevin Clash, Frank Oz, Joey Mazzarino, Martin P. Robinson, Eric Jacobson, Jerry Nelson, Richard Hunt, Stephanie D'Abruzzo, Matt Vogel, Steve Whitmire, Tyler Bunch, Lisa Buckley, and Noel MacNeal.

In 2008, the Three Pigs began making various background appearances on Plaza Sésamo.

  • In a 2005 episode, Baby Bear's story of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" explains that during the three bears' walk, he and his parents made pig noises that caused themselves to transform into the Three Little Pigs. When the Big Bad Wolf began chasing them, the "pigs" made bear noises, transforming themselves back into their true identities and catching the wolf off-guard.
