Blond, glamorous and feisty, we fell in love with Miss Piggy when she first appeared on The Muppet Show in 1976. On TV and on the big screen, the elegant pig is usually pining for stardom (and for a certain green amphibian). But this is one pig who won't be pushed around; when the blond beauty feels slighted in any way, she unleashes her inner diva in the form of a karate chop - which often finds Kermit the Frog as its target. "Hi-ya!"
Break out your pink T-shirts and curly tails, fellow swine enthusiasts: March 1 is National Pig Day. According to the Los Angeles Times, the holiday was started in 1972 by sisters Ellen Stanley and Mary Lynne Rave to celebrate "one of man's most intellectual and domesticated animals." To celebrate this special holiday, we rounded up some of the most famous hogs of all time.
