Swinetrek - Spacecraft featured on the "Pigs in Space" segment of the syndicated puppet series THE MUPPETS/SYN/1976-81.

Swinetrek Spacecraft - THE MUPPET SHOW

The Swinetrek was a jug-shaped spacecraft resembling a pig that drifted aimlessly through space.

Its Muppet crew members were Captain Link Hogthrob, Dr. Julius Strangepork and First Mate Miss Piggy. An emblem/patch on each of their uniforms had a face of a pig in a circle of blue which rested on a lightning bolt.

The end of each serial episode concluded with the announcer echoing "Tune in next week for an other adventure of Pigs in Space!"
