Kermit the Frog is puppeteer Jim Henson’s most famous Muppet creation, first introduced in 1955. He is the protagonist of many Muppet projects, most notably as the host of The Muppet Show, and has appeared in various sketches on Sesame Street, in commercials and in public service announcements over the years.

The prototype Kermit was created from a turquoise woman-size coat that Henson’s mother had thrown into a waste bin, and two ping pong ball halves for eyes.

In The Muppet Show television series, Kermit was the central character, the frontman and the long-suffering stage manager of the theatre show, trying to keep order amidst the chaos created by the other Muppets. Jim Henson once claimed that Kermit’s job on the Muppet Show was much like his own: “trying to get a bunch of crazies to actually get the job done.” It was on this show that the running joke of Kermit being pursued by leading lady Miss Piggy developed.

Kermit also served as the mascot for The Jim Henson Company, until the sale of the Muppet characters to the Walt Disney Company. A Kermit puppet can be seen at the National Museum of American History
