Our fave frog talks ''Sesame Street,'' Jim Henson, what he really thinks of Miss Piggy
A bold experiment in fusing entertainment with education, Sesame Street became an overnight sensation, catapulting Kermit into the hearts of kids everywhere. Whether playing a TV reporter or the straight man to more outrageous characters, he connected with the show's young audience on a deep level.
Kermit: ''Back then, we had no idea the 'Street' as we on the street called the Street would have such an incredible impact. It was wonderful working with both my fellow Muppets and the humans, but the best part was talking letters and numbers with all the little kids who appeared on the show and who are now old enough to have kids of their own!''
