“It’s not easy bein’ green…
But green’s the color of spring…
I’m green and it’ll do fine.
It’s beautiful. And I think it’s what I want to be.”
“It’s Not Easy Bein’ Green,” The Muppets Wizard of Oz

Kermit the Frog is one of the most recognizable characters of both Sesame Street and The Muppet Show. He debuted in 1955 on a show called Sam and Friends.

Kermit represents the Everyman archetype, and he has worked as a news reporter and producer. As such, he is often the “straight man” in comedy skits, the character who maintains his composure when others act strangely.

He is constantly pursued by the amorous Miss Piggy, who refers to him as “Kermie.” In the real world, two Kermit the Frog songs – “The Rainbow Connection” and “The First Time It Happens” – were nominated for Academy Awards.
