Kermit the Frog Photo Puppet:

 

Prop Story:

It's not that easy being green. But you sure wouldn't know it by the celebrated and sensationally inspirational career of the one and only Kermit the Frog. It seems like only yesterday that Kermit got his start on a local television show called 'Sam & Friends," before growing by leaps and hops into the world's most famous amphibian. In fact, it's been 50 years since Kermit's creator, Jim Henson, changed the world with Kermit and his Muppet pals.

As Kermit is known to say: "Time's sure fun when you're having flies."

In truth, Kermit wasn't always a frog. Fashioned from a coat belonging to Jim Henson's mother, with two halves of a ping-pong ball for his eyes, Kermit was originally more lizard than frog like. At first, he had no flippers or collar, but over the years, he became "frogified" according to Henson. The rest is history.

Kermit is a classic Muppet hand-and-rod-operated puppet, one of the simplest kinds of puppets. And yet, it is that very simplicity which makes him so expressive and such an endearing extension of Henson's personality. For still photo shoots, puppets like Kermit were built without hand openings and with wire armatures that allowed posability, so as to capture that unique Muppet attitude.

Master Replicas is proud to present this authentic replica of a Kermit the Frog Photo Puppet, created using the same patterns as the originals and similar fleece materials. Kermit's indomitable spirit is as evergreen as he is, and this unique collectible brings that spirit home as never before.

We all need some froggy to love. Kermit is now available in the first-ever authentic, posable Kermit the Frog "Photo" Puppet replica from Master Replicas.

Originally fashioned from a green spring coat belonging to Jim Henson's mother, with two halves of a ping-pong ball for his eyes, Kermit the Frog has grown to become the world's most famous amphibian. During his sensationally inspirational 50-year career-beginning with his 1955 debut on a local television program called "Sam and Friends"--Kermit has posed for thousands of still photos, using a "Photo Puppet" version with wire armatures instead of hand openings. Now, Master Replicas is proud to present the first-ever authentic Kermit Photo Puppet replica, created using the original patterns and similar materials. One look and you'll echo Miss Piggy's heartfelt squeal of amour: "We love you, Kermie!"
