Impossible Questions: Minnie Pig Edition (Answer)

September 10, 2014

Think you’ve got the answer? Keep reading to see if you nailed it.

What musical achievement links Minnie Mouse and Miss Piggy?

They are fictional anthropomorphic characters, of course…and both have performed a duet of “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” with Elton John.

Between the gigantic glasses, elaborate stage shows, colorful music videos, and costumes that have included both Donald Duck and Louis XIV, Elton John is more or less a real life cartoon character. It should be no surprise then that the rock legend loves animation and kid stuff. He’s written and performed music for several animated movies, including The Lion King, The Road to El Dorado, and Gnomeo & Juliet. He’s also performed with animated characters, puppets, and fictional characters more often than most.

Here he is in 1988 on the NBC television special Totally Minnie, performing a duet of his 1976 hit “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” with Minnie Mouse.

And here he is performing it back in 1978 on The Muppet Show with the only person at the time who was a bigger and more spectacular star than he was: Miss Piggy.
