Kermit and the Smithsonian

Apparently, about two weeks ago, the original Kermit the Frog, made by Jim Henson out of a green coat (and not yet really a frog), was donated by Jim's widow, Jane, to the Smithsonian, along with a few other puppets from the early Sam and Friends days. What a wonderful thing for Mrs. Henson to have done! I can't wait to see how they display them all.

Below is a great skit with Kermit from the good ol' days, followed by a montage of Wilkins and Wontkins commercials--classically Henson, full of unapologetic assault, violence, and maiming.
