Kermit the Frog is the most famous Muppet of all time, created by Jim Henson and first introduced in 1955. Besides starring in TV shows like Sesame Street and The Muppet Show, he's also been in the movies. He has a new movie coming out in March, so now's a great time to make your very own Kermit the Frog, from a paper plate!
