Looks like the Muppets spent their three-year hiatus at the movies. How else to explain the X-Files-meets-Truman Show-flavored theme of Muppets From Space (coming in July). This time, we find Gonzo in the midst of an existential crisis: Miss Piggy knows she’s a pig, Kermit’s sure he’s a frog, but what, Gonzo wonders, am I? While he’s discovering his identity out there, Kermit and Piggy put their romance on hold. Says producer Brian Henson, ”They live together, [but] Piggy’s really into being a career gal.”
