Our fave frog talks ''Sesame Street,'' Jim Henson, what he really thinks of Miss Piggy
In his first televised appearances on this five-minute sketch-comedy puppet show broadcast locally in Washington, D.C. (clips of which can be found on YouTube), Kermit looked more like a lizard than an amphibian and was just a supporting player.
Kermit: ''I wasn't the star of the show and wasn't even billed as a frog. But it was great preparation for my career. Most important, that's when I met Jim Henson. I'm not exactly sure what Jim did, but whatever it was really moved me. He had a remarkable spirit that made you believe anything was possible. No matter what happens, he'll always be the biggest part of what I do and who I am.''
