Punknocchio: A 1985 Muppet Magazine Story
In the 1980s, I had a subscription to Muppet Magazine. This publication featured interviews with celebrities, an advice column from Miss Piggy, and movie reviews and other articles "written" by various Muppets. Of course, there were also parody posters and comic book style stories, too. The Summer 1985 issue featured a great, short little spin on Pinocchio called Punknocchio. This story was written by Cathi Rosenberg-Turow and illustrated by a very talented artist named Nancy Beiman.
This is 1980s Muppet insanity at its finest!
Of course, now we've come full circle and the Muppets are starring in some great commercials for Disney Parks, and Kermit and Miss Piggy are even featured in a new pre-parade at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.
The Muppets also recently had great success online with their version of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody.
