LEAGUE OF THEMSELVES - KERMIT THE FROG


KERMIT THE FROG

Kermit is the most famous of the Muppets, a member of the TV Crossover Hall of Fame (Founding member, July 1999) due to his cast member status on 'Sam & Friends', 'Sesame Street', 'The Muppet Show', 'Muppets Tonight!' and many guest appearances in variety specials and talk shows, as well as in the movies.

From Wikipedia:
On an episode of 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition', Kermit commented to Ty Pennington, "You know, as a tadpole in the swamp, I had 3,265 brothers and sisters!" According to the 2002 film Kermit's Swamp Years, at the age of 12, he was the first of his siblings to leave the swamp, and one of the first frogs to talk to humans. He is portrayed as encountering a 12-year-old Jim Henson (played by Christian Kriebel) for the first time.

According to "The Muppet Movie" Kermit returned to the swamp, where a passing agent (Dom DeLuise) noted he had talent and, thus inspired, he headed to Hollywood, encountering the rest of the Muppets along the way. Together, they were given a standard "rich and famous" contract by Lew Lord (Orson Welles) of Wide World Studios and began their showbiz careers. In Before You Leap, Kermit again references encountering Jim Henson sometime after the events depicted in the course of "The Muppet Movie" and details their friendship and their partnership in the entertainment industry, and credits Henson as being the individual to whom he owes his fame.

 At some point after the events of "The Muppet Movie", Kermit and the other Muppets begin 'The Muppet Show', and the characters remain together as a group, before starring in the other Muppet films and 'Muppets Tonight', with Kermit usually at the core of the stories as the lead protagonist. "The Muppet Movie" says that the events of the movie "approximate how it happened" (referring to how the Muppets got started) when asked about the film by his nephew Robin.
