Miss Piggy: Doug's 1979 SCOOPS News Cartoon

ABC premiers The Muppets Tuesday evening, September 22nd; the series opens with "Pig Girls Don't Cry."  

Miss Piggy "stars" in this ABC pilot episode so I thought blog readers might enjoy the humor of Doug's 1979 news cartoon pondering if Jim Henson's prima donna pig could be the "new face" of the CBS Evening News, made popular by news anchor Walter Cronkite, who was called the "most trusted man in America."  

Cronkite helped launch the CBS Evening News in 1962 and was its news anchor until he retired in 1981.
