Trivia

The Star Wars "Pigs In Space" sketch's musical finale is concluded by a brief rendition of the song "When You Wish Upon A Star", complete with a Disney-esque castle and shooting stars in the background. This is bizarrely prophetic, as the Muppets were acquired by Disney in 2004, and LucasFilm (owners of the Star Wars franchise) was acquired by Disney in 2012. See more »

Quotes

[Luke Skywalker and C-3PO, from the movie Star Wars, are making a guest appearance on the show "Pigs in Space"]

C-3PO: She doesn't look like the Princess to me.
