Kermit the Frog Gives a TED Talk About Creativity & the Power of “Ridiculous Optimism”

In 2015, 3.8 billion years after “creativity emerged” out of “sheerest emptiness,” Kermit the Frog was tapped to give a talk on creativity at TEDxJackson. How did a local, one-day event manage to snag such a global icon? Roots. The famed frog’s creator, Jim Henson, spent his first decade in Mississippi (though Kermit was born of a ping pong ball and Henson’s mother’s old coat after the family relocated to Maryland.) The conference took place 15 years after Henson’s untimely death, ...

Watch Blondie’s Debbie Harry Perform “Rainbow Connection” with Kermit the Frog on The Muppet Show (1981)

Do you dig songs about rainbows? The host of one of the very last episodes of The Muppet Show — Debbie Harry, lead singer of Blondie – does, and in 1981, she seized the opportunity to duet with Kermit the Frog on his signature tune, “The Rainbow Connection” — its only performance in the series’ five season run. Many of us associate the folksy number with The Muppet Movie‘s pastoral opening scene. This rendition transfers the action backstage to the kimono-clad Harry’s dressing room. ...

‘The Muppet Show’ on Disney+ Makes It Clear: It’s Time for Variety Shows to Stage a Comeback

A few weeks ago, Disney+ took a big step forward in terms of what shows it presents to audiences worldwide. Although most audiences were spending each Friday talking about the latest installment of WandaVision , that nine-episode limited series pales in comparison to the long-awaited arrival of The Muppet Show . All five seasons of the late-1970s variety show (save for two episodes from the fifth season) are available to stream on Disney+, with only a handful of episodes being slightly sho...

Witness the Birth of Kermit the Frog in Jim Henson’s Live TV Show, Sam and Friends (1955)

Long before “green” became synonymous with eco-friendly products and production, an 18-year-old Jim Henson created a puppet who would go on to become the color’s most celebrated face from his mother’s cast-off green felt coat and a single ping pong ball. Kermit debuted in black and white in the spring of 1955 as an ensemble member of Sam and Friends, a live television show comprised of five-minute episodes that the talented Henson had been tapped to write and perform, following some earl...

Fisher Stevens talks making ‘Palmer’ with Justin Timberlake, plus ‘Tiger King’ and ‘Succession’ work

Director Fisher Stevens says he knew the success of “Palmer,” his new feature film about a pair of “beautiful misfits” in a small town in Louisiana, might ultimately depend on how wisely he chose his two lead actors. “The movie hinges on those two actors, those two performances,” Stevens says via Zoom from his home in Brooklyn a few weeks before the Jan. 26 arrival of “Palmer” on the Apple+ streaming service. “Because it’s really kind of a buddy movie.” For Palmer, the title character, Stevens s...
