Homage to Tom Jones in Time Piece

Tom Jones is the 1963 film adaptation of Henry Fielding's novel, winning four Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director. Set in the 18th century, it tells of the many adventures (mostly romantic) of handsome rogue Tom. One of the film's best known set pieces has Tom and the lusty Mrs. Waters gazing at each other while devouring a large meal.

  • During "Never Before, Never Again," Kermit and Miss Piggy wear 18th century costumes inspired by Tom Jones.[1] Their romp in open nature recalls a montage between Tom and his love Sophie, while the pair ducking below the trees mirrors an earlier dalliance (with the Tom Jones narrator specifying it was for decorum).
