The muppets have been around since the 1950s.At 1st they just did commericals.But as time passed, they got their own show,Sam and Friends.After that S. Street went on the air,followed by the Muppet Show,then fraggle rock,The Jim Henson Hour and finally Muppets Tonight,which is back on the air on Disney (Also Dinosaurs,the Animal show,the World of Doctor Seuss,Big Bag and the Aliens in the Family). The Late Jim Henson brought them to the big screen in 1979(that is,if you don't count what they did for The Star Wars Triology) in their 1st movie,"The Muppet Movie". After that Henson made muppet movies such as "Follow that bird,The Dark Crystal,Labyrinth and The Great Muppet Caper" (to name a few).After Henson's Death his son took over.Richard Hunt died soon after(He did scooter,Janice,and a few others).
It is said Kermit was 1st made out of Jim Henson's mother's raincoat!He is probally
the most famous muppet,their leader so to speak.:)
His look has changed somewhat over the years,but little else has.Hes still the lovable muppet,
named after a childhood friend of Jims.
