Kermit the Frog 50th showbiz birthday on Friday

Entertainment News:
"Kermit made his debut in a 1955 television comedy called Sam and Friends, which aired locally in Washington, but he looked more lizardlike then. Kermit was fashioned from an old coat belonging to the mother of late Muppets creator Jim Henson and was named after one of Henson's childhood friends.
Henson and his two-foot tall puppet joined Sesame Street in 1969. The Muppet Show followed in 1976 and ended its run in 1982.
Henson gave Kermit a voice and a life for 35 years, until his death in 1990. Since then, Steve Whitmire, who had worked with Henson for about 13 years, has taken over his voice and movements."
