Kermit the Frog Photo Puppet:
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
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
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
