I think I got more nostalgia looking at what you wrote about the kippers than my trying to twice watch was on dvr but falling to sleep. They needed a real person to design for. Having said that I can remember Ms. Piggybeing the most glamorous of the muppets. And I wanted that frog to fall in love with her.
My least favorite this episode was Mila. But I have found her designs striking. And I would think they would be comforting to wear. And we should all embrace what comforts us.
I guess I would have worn the longer ones. I liked all of them. The pinks did not read too well on tv. But in person I might gravitatedto it. It's a feminine and childlike color all in one.
