Kermit the Frog is an entertainment icon known worldwide for his appearances on The Muppet Show and Sesame Street, as well as a number of feature films. He attributes much of his success to his thirty-five year partnership with Mississippi native and entertainment visionary, Jim Henson. Kermit has received many honors and accolades for his work, including multiple Academy Award nominations, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and a commemorative stamp from the U.S. Postal Service.
Being in my late 30s I’m more partial to the original version with John Denver but this one with Jimmy Fallon in a worthy successor.
As a child of the 70s, I recently read Street Gang: The Complete History of Sesame Street and enjoyed it thoroughly. That experience only may this, the pitch film from 1969 all the more interesting.
