    My neighbor gave me this unused stove for free the other day. I have no idea who made it, but it is kind of a neat looking stove. The top and doors are cast iron, included was a heavy cast iron burn pot that is removable. Any help would be appreciated. It is marked Miss Piggy, 1980. Thanks, Steve

    Obviously a copyright infringement on the muppets! I was told it was a Vermont Castings, but I can't find anything on it.

    Just when you think you've about seen it all . . . and then WHAM . . . something like this appears . . . I love it! Not that I would want it in my house, but I love the odd-ness of it all.

    That is funny. I love that it has her image on the door. I just can't imagine a legit company like VC making that stove. They would have had to have a licensing agreement and that could be researched. Maybe it was cast special for Jim Henson.
