Kermit is a bright green frog who was the star and host of The Muppet Show and appears on Sesame Street. The character of Kermit is one of Jim Henson’s earliest creations, dating back to 1955 with his appearances on Sam and Friends on the Washington, D.C., NBC affiliate station. He was previously performed by Jim Henson and Steve Whitmire and is currently performed by Matt Vogel. Kermit is a calm, level-headed character who is constantly trying to keep everything together as he is surrounded by craziness. Kermit is known for singing “Bein’ Green” (also known as “It’s Not Easy Bein’ Green”) which talks about the difficulties he has had because of his color but ends with him accepting and embracing his greenness.
