A New Muppet Movie: Kermit and Miss Piggy Turn Out

The Muppets have released their rendition of the Wizard of Oz. I haven’t seen it, but I’m sure it’s fun. Who out there can’t recall the words to “Rainbow Connection” which opened the first Muppet movie? I’ve got to see if they have that on iTunes.

The fellows who operate the muppets seem to pretty happy about their jobs. In particular, the Kermit operator Steve Whitmire struck me as the happiest guy on the planet. In an enviable way, not a silly way.

Here’s a shot from a different appearance from a few years ago. That grin pretty much tells the story of his job.
