“Pigs don’t have eyebrows!”
First off, it’s hysterical. I have always wanted to ask Frank Oz what it was like doing this scene, because secondly,there definitely had to be a limited number of takes! I mean, look at what Joan does to Piggy’s face! That had to have been a little nerve-wracking at first, being asked to slop makeup all over Piggy. But they both play it so genuinely, like two girls getting carried away in mommy’s makeup,it’s hard to believe Piggy is a puppet, which, of course, is the secret to Muppet Magic.
I think of this clip nearly every time I am putting on makeup.:)
