I'm confused - how can this be Kermit's 50th anniversary?

Surely it's 30 years since the first Muppet show.

Do frog years count as 1.66 human years?

Kermit was seen on WRC-4 in Washington D.C. on a local show called "Sam and Friends"

Jim Henson was still in College at the University of Maryland and was quite the business man even then.

He used to drive a Rolls-Royce while still in school.

When Kermit and Jim, they are one in the same ya know, started doing Sesame Street in New York a lot of us locals were Proud he made it in the big time..

Who would have guessed his Muppets and himself would end up being world-wide Icons..

Oh my goodness, he is adorable. I always loved Kermie, he is just so darn cute and lovable. The poses they photographed him in are very cute as can be. He is just the best :D

Kermit came into existance in 1955 using Jim Henson's mother's green coat to make him.

Couple o'pics:





I won't be buying one, for I reckon this will be a good line for MR - lots of muppet fans out there. :)

So it's not a puppet?

But the ad says it is. "Puppet replica". (If this were an AA thread there would be screams of false advertising)

So not a puppet.

Damn. Wanted a puppet. Oh well.

Edit: Oops....add does say "Photo"....my bad.

Dang..still wanted a stick puppet.

Yep, it is the "Photo poser puppet" so yes it is indeed a puppet.

I'm getting this one and I'm making a stick puppet to sit along next to it.

I already got some head patterns from a 1976 Fisher price doll to resize and modify to make my stick puppet.

I pre-ordered mine this morning. I'm excited they're releasing these. I've always loved the muppets and I can't wait for future offerings.
