Why Miss Piggy and Kermit Are Gonna Make it, and Why Barbie and Ken Aren’t…

Barbie and Ken:

It’s no secret, Barbie and Ken have been together forever.

Good old Barb and Ken.

This picture is proof that Barbie and Ken have been together so long, that Ken hadn’t even discovered tanning yet, or highlights, and Barbie was still rocking the alabaster look.  Here’s hoping that when they finally discovered that being tan increased their attractiveness by 50%, that they at least went for a faux glow.

They’ve come a long way, huh?

It's amazing what a little tan and highlights can do...

Barbie and Ken have been through a lot over the years…

They got married…

Barb even had Princess Di's dress replicated...

They reproduced a beautiful child…

And named her Kelly.

But sadly, that still didn’t stop Ken from breaking up with Barbie in a very public way…

Barb, Ken wants a divorce...P.S. Who does that?!

Kind of makes you wonder what Barbie did to anger Ken so much…

Whatever the case was, Barbie and Ken separated, and a few years later Ken put up another public plea, but this time he wanted Barbie back…

Oh, Ken...Make up your mind!!

By Valentine’s Day 2011, Barbie had taken Ken back…Maybe it was for Kelly, or maybe she was just lonely without him, nonetheless they rekindled their love…

Sure, they look like the perfect couple on paper...

However, I personally think, that if Ken can break Barbie’s heart so publicly after all those years together, than I predict that their romance will no doubt eventually fizzle out again.  The point is, Barbie and Ken are the perfect couple on paper, but there is still something fundamentally wrong with their union, and we may never know what that is.

Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog:

Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog have a bit of a tumultuous relationship, too.

Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog have been together a long time, too, but let’s face it, they haven’t always been the ideal couple.

In the early days, Kermit was making desperate attempts to flee Miss Piggy’s advances…

Kermy was NOT having it...

But somewhere along the way he conceded.  Maybe Kermit felt it was easier to just give in to her, or maybe he really started to really fall in love with Miss Piggy.

Nonetheless the Pig and the Frog married each other…

Kermy is totally feeling the love now...

Sure their relationship has been plagued with rumors of Miss Piggy coercing Kermit the Frog into marriage, but the point is, neither Miss Piggy or Kermy have confirmed nor denied the rumors.

The one thing that is clear, is who wears the pants in the relationship…

Sure she outweighs him, but he doesn't seem to mind. In fact, I think he likes it that way.

The point is, unlike Barbie and Ken, who had a passionate courtship and are the perfect couple on paper, Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog’s love may not have started out ideal, but it grew over time.  They didn’t fall in love and get married right away, they were friends first, and that allowed their love to blossom over time.  Miss Piggy and Kermy have been through good times and bad, and have stayed together through it all.  That says something.

Most of all, Kermit the Frog could have easily put Miss Piggy on blast for pushing him into marriage, but he didn’t.  Unlike Ken, Kermy stuck by Miss Piggy no matter what.  What a guy, ahhh-hmmm…frog!

And that is why I think Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog have what it takes to make it.

Forever.

  1. Ha! I totally had the “Princess Di” Dream Wedding Barbie! But, agreed, Miss Piggy and Kermit seem to have a deep and abiding love…what do Barbie and Ken even talk about?? (Reminds me of Toy Story 3! Love that take on them!)

  2. But poor Kermit! He’s in such an abusive relationship, what with Miss Piggy’s control issues and such…

    I’ve gotta say, though, you make some good arguments. They didn’t fall in love; they grew in love (well, at least Kermit did…).

    Very cute post! ;)

    • Yeah, you’re right, it is kind of an abusive relationship. Well, I didn’t say their relationship was better, I just said they’d last longer! Haha!! Thanks for reading;)

  3. I LOVE Kermit and Miss Piggy! They are so cute together.. I am happy Kermit finally got married to Miss Piggy, I just feel bad for any of the girls that he tries to be friends with.. with Miss Piggy having such a big jealousy problem…

      • Sarah I love getting a beep on my phone telling me there is a blog post from you. We are complete strangers but I love reading about your life and your thoughts on the world. So I just wanted to say thank you and keep them coming. I am sure you brighten lots of days!

      • Nancy, that is so nice of you to say, and you literally made my week! Thank you so much for reading, I really appreciate every single one of you that takes the time to read my posts, and I love the comments, too!! You guys make it all worthwhile, I swear. Thanks so very much again;)

  4. Just the title of your post had me intrigued and wanting more. I still remember one of my nephews was so confused about Kermit and Miss Piggy and lets not even discuss Donkey and Dragon mating in Shrek and having babies. My nephew could not wrap his intelligent brain on how two species could date one another let alone have babies – hillarious and oh so cute! Loving the post:)

  5. I LOVE Kermit! Kermit keeps his composure and he’s got STRONG HEALTHY BOUNDARIES in place…no pushy person can push him where he doesn’t CHOOSE to go. I love how he controlled their relationship all the long not allowing excitement to dictate their path but rather TRUE PRICELESS FRIENDSHIP prove the guiding force paving their lifelong footsteps to walk together. Kermit is wise and miss piggy goes Wild over him and only him. She’s not jealous….she’s smitten. She’s assertive and confident and knows what and who she likes. Awesome couple: PRINCE CHARMING to the end with his
