Star Wars and the Muppets have a long happy history together, starting with Frank Oz, the wonderful puppeteer who brought life to many of my favourite Muppets; Miss Piggy, Burt, Cookie Monster, Animal, Fozzie Bear, Grover, and of course my favorite little Jedi Master, Yoda.
Shortly after Star Wars was released, cross-overs started to spring up, starting with one of my favorite episodes of The Muppet Show, where both Luke Skywalker and Mark Hamil show up. *snicker*
This soon followed suit with many other cross-overs, including Muppet Babies

Disney World even decked out our favorite Muppets in honour of Star Tours.
I love that Piggy has a hair dryer instead of a blaster.
Even one of my favorite artists, Katie Cook, agrees that this is such a great combination.
Just check out her awesome drawings
Who doesn't love Camilla the Chicken playing Princess Leia?
I'm sure this is just the beginning and I hope to see much more of it in the future.
Know of any good Muppet/Star Wars crossovers that I'm missing? Drop me a line :)
