Five Favorite Muppets Couples

The new Muppets movie comes out this weekend and I’m dying to see it. The strange combination of Ty Burrell (aka Phil Dunphy), Tina Fey and Miss Piggy is so intriguing to me. As I was thinking about Muppets: Most Wanted, I started thinking about all of the famous Muppets couples.

Here are my favorites:

Floyd Pepper and Janice. Bass player and lead electric guitar, respectively, of Electric Mayhem, they are the cool hippies I wish I could be.

Bert and Ernie. I’m branching out into Sesame Street territory here, but they are such a good pair. And I loved the New Yorker cover that shows them cuddling watching the ruling for gay marriage on TV.

Kermit and Miss Piggy. The most obvious of the couples, but still a good one. There’s so much to love with each of their big personalities.

Gonzo and Camilla. Both so crazy looking, both so entertaining. Gotta love this bird-brained pair.

Statler and Waldorf. By far my favorite of the couples. These two are hilarious and grouchy. I absolutely love them.
