  • Trivia

    • Miss Piggy often calls the guest stars by the names of characters they are known for playing. In the Suite Life parody, she refers to London Tipton (Brenda Song) as "Wendy Wu", referring to Brenda Song's role in the Disney Channel Original Movie, "Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior". And in the "Bob to the Top" scene, Miss Piggy intimidatingly calls Ashley Tisdale "Sharpay" and "Maddie", referring to Ashley Tisdale's most-known roles in "High School Musical" and "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody".
