Miss Piggy of the Muppets was the first fictional character known to have contracted Swine Flu. She contracted the illness after visiting relatives between the 1980 and 1981 seasons of “The Muppet Show”.
She is known to have infected Kermit the Frog, her physician Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, puppeteer Frank Oz, and Yoda (via Frank Oz).
When Yoda died in Return of the Jedi, it was after a long battle with Swine Flu. Miss Piggy is therefore singlehandedly responsible for the loss of thousands of years of Jedi wisdom from the years of the Old Republic
An infection that appears to have lain dormant since the early 1980s appears to have claimed beloved icon Kermit the Frog.
