Stray thought

Probably brought on by too many watchings of Muppet Bohemian Rhapsody. But I've always had this idea that Leblanc reminded me of another character in another medium, and I finally figured out today who it is: Miss Piggy.

Wait, where are you going?

No, really. I'm totally serious about this. And I don't mean it in a derogatory way at all -- Miss Piggy has long been one of my favorite characters. I love how take-charge she is, that she doesn't take crap from anyone, her confidence and determination. And Leblanc shares all these characteristics with Miss Piggy, along with a love of pink and a willingness to use The Heel to get her way. ("Hiiiii-ya!") These are two women who know what they want and will stop at nothing to get it.

And what do they want? Among other things, the affections of a man (or frog) who does not appear to return their feelings. Vociferously in the case of Kermit, whereas Nooj seems more indifferent, but the final result is the same. Not that this stops either Piggy or Leblanc in their mad pursuit -- Miss Piggy, at least, seems to get more determined the more her "Kermie" protests, and though we don't have as much history to go on with Leblanc and Nooj, the parallel is at least suggested, down to the goofy nickname for the object of her desires.

So, thoughts? Am I torturing the comparisons, or is it a parallel that makes sense?

Also, I am trying really, really hard not to consider the crossover possibilities... Down, brain! Down!

...That makes a frightening amount of sense, actually.

Doesn't it? It's one of those idle thoughts I had, and I was assuming it couldn't possibly hold up, but the more I looked at it, the better it fit, and...

I love Miss Piggy and I love LeBlanc. I approve of this comparison!

Oh good, I'm glad that you, as a Leblanc fan, approve. ;) Can't you just see Piggy ordering goons around? The Miss Piggy Syndicate...

That makes a big amount of sense and I see it. No wonder I enjoy her antics so much. Since I enjoy miss Piggy as well

Interestingly, though I have always been a fan of Miss Piggy, I have very mixed feelings about Leblanc. That may be why it took me so long to see the parallels, and also because the character's contexts are so different.

Glad it's not just me who can see it! :)

I always think my grandmother is like Miss Piggy. Now I am crossing my grandmother and Leblanc in my head and I blame you
