It’s time to sing the pricy copyrighted song, it’s time to light the candles! Today, May 9th, is the birthday/anniversary/television debut of the one and only Kermit the Frog! Yes, 56 years ago today, Sam and Friends debuted on Washington DC television and introduced us to Kermit the Unspecified Creature Who Would Later Become a Frog. As you can probably imagine… Kermit is the reason for all we do here at The Muppet Mindset (well, he and some guy called Jim), and after 56 years he is still going extremely strong and entertaining people all over the world. So please enjoy this collection of some of our favorite Kermit moments, starting with a video from AOL.com showcasing Kermit on his birthday:

Happy 56th Birthday, Kermit! The true evergreen and the only frog worthy of our love!
