Yesterday, the 20th March, Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie, Sweetums and Animal made their way to Hollywood Boulevard to receive the Muppets' star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!
As if it wasn’t already sufficient enough that The Muppets have their own clothing line, their own attraction at Walt Disney World, to be enjoyed by Muppet fans with their Disney tickets, released a blockbuster film this year and won an Oscar, yesterday, the 20th March, the Muppet clan were honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie, Sweetums and Animal graced Hollywood Boulevard with their presence to receive this landmark achievement. Kermit, who already has his own personal star on the Walk of Fame and made his debut TV appearance in 1955 said, ‘"I want to say on behalf of the Muppets that we are just really happy to be here on Hollywood Boulevard joining some of the greatest names in showbiz."
The Muppets were awarded the 2,466th star on the Walk of Fame, the star located not too far from the late creator of the Muppets Jim Henson. Lisa and Brian Henson, the daughter and son of Henson, were also in attendance. Lisa Henson, also the CEO of the Jim Henson Company, paraphrased from The Rainbow Connection, a song from The Muppet Movie, ‘As the Muppets once sang, “Look at us. Here we are. Right where we belong.” and yes they do belong thanks to the lovers and dreamers and you the fans.’
