Can someone who is more familiar with secondary Muppet characters please tell me what is going on here?
It is...a log-baby? Being cradled by a space pig? This little nightmare appears on pages 1, 3, and 6 of Muppets in Space and subsequently vanishes from the book entirely, leaving not a word of explanation in his wake. Huge mistake, author! As Chekhov once wrote, "If in the first act you have put a log-baby, then in the following one the log-baby must die in a fire. Otherwise don't put it there."
