June inductees into the Television Crossover Hall of Fame have included Muppets and other puppets over the years.
Seems like a tradition that should be continued….
Link Hogthrob is the blonde, cleft-chinned pig with a high opinion of himself on ‘The Muppet Show’. He debuted in the second season as the not-so-fearless captain of the Swinetrek, where his unbridled machismo was often a source of conflict with his co-star, First Mate Piggy.
Link was later one of the few classic ‘Muppet Show’ characters to be used in the Muppet Central control room on ‘The Jim Henson Hour’. His most notable appearance was in the episode "Fitness" where he believes that he has a disease called Canadian Snout Fever after reading a book of silly diseases and by coincidentally encountering a number of things related to the book's symptoms.
Whitmire continued to perform Link in his return to puppet form in ‘The Muppets’ (where he sang "Smells Like Teen Spirit" as a member of the Muppets Barbershop Quartet), and “Muppets Most Wanted” (singing a verse in "Something So Right," and conversing with Usher at the wedding).
