I loved the Muppets when I was a kid, and my favorite Muppet was Kermit the Frog. I still love him.
The Muppet Show was must-see tv as far as I was concerned. To me what was great about the Muppet Show was that even though it was for kids, they had great guest stars like Debbie Harry, Diana Ross, Steve Martin, Johnny Cash, Gladys Knight, Elton John, Paul Simon, and so many other legendary entertainers. Besides Kermit, I loved Fozzie Bear, Rowlf the piano playing dog, Animal the drummer, Gonzo, and the Swedish Chef. I also loved the old guys who sat in the balcony and jeered the performances.
I remember being beyond excited when The Muppet Movie came out, and I couldn't wait to go to the theater to see it. I wasn't disappointed. After seeing the movie, I thought this was easily the most beautiful song ever recorded.
I wouldn't go quite that far now. ;) But the clip still makes me smile, and I find myself singing along when I watch. It's hard to beat a singing frog sitting on a log and playing a banjo.
You can't go wrong with Kermit the Frog.
