I've got a dream too, but it's about singing and dancing and making people happy. That's the kind of dream that gets better the more people you share it with.”
When Kermit the Frog sprang from the imagination of creator Jim Henson over 50 years ago, the world was given a new friend whose endearing qualities continue to charm each succeeding generation.
Remarkably, most never really outgrow the connection with Kermit the Frog. His personality transcends mere toys and action figures because Kermit the Frog is someone we know. We’ve lived along with him through good days and bad and observed how he keeps a perspective on whatever comes his way. Green and fuzzy, this delightful character has become part of our lives. Henson offered insight into the comfortable world Kermit the Frog draws us into: “There is a sense of our characters caring for each other. A positive feeling, a positive view of life. That’s the key to everything we do.”
Kermit the Frog is also a dreamer and an inspiration for our own goals and aspirations. After all, if a frog can accomplish so much, we can do something too!
We came to know Kermit the Frog when Sesame Street introduced him and many other enduring characters in 1969. But Kermit’s beginnings trace back to Henson’s childhood, with a family who was very supportive of Henson’s creativity. In particular, his maternal grandmother, who was an avid painter, quilter and needle worker, encouraged young Jim to use his imagination and to take delight in the world around him.
Since then, TV shows, movies and personal appearances around the world have made Kermit the Frog worthy of star status. Yet he remains as loveable as the first time we encountered him. Perhaps a clue to Kermit the Frog’s humility comes from his well-known lyric, ”It’s not easy being green.” As we grow and change it’s nice to have a hero who stays the same—one who serves as a real inspiration to “Live Your Dreams.”
Live Your Dreams. Pass It On!

I saw this bill board at Edmonton Airport. It made me smile, but also every few seconds someone else would see it and smile. I took a photo and sent it to my 23 year old son, who laughed. Here am I today, on your website thinking the world is a better place.

While on my cruise I got bored and came across this website. I looked at this bilboard and thought Jim Henson changed the way we look at our problems. He taught us that bad things can happen but you can overcome them.

I saw this billboard on the way to my chemotherapy appointments. At first every time I saw it, it made me laugh. What a great place for a happy billboard. Then the more I saw it, the more it got me thinking. Why Not. I'm completely recovered. I still have dreams and lots to do. I think Kermit helped me get better faster. It's a very inspirational and motivating billboard. I LOVE IT!!!

I could not believe it when I opened this up. I found this same Kermit ad for www.betterlife.org. when I was preparing my vision/dream board. In is in a place of prominence on my vision board. He looks so gentle, so dreamy and he makes me smile. It just fell it love with what it represents and how it was set up. I REALLY BELIEVE IN LIVING ONES' DREAMS AND PASSING IT ON.

Kermit has always been an inspiration for me. From his song/line "Someday we'll find it the rainbow connection. The lovers the dreamers and me." to Life's like a movie, write your own ending. Keep believing keep pretending!"
Love the ads you guys do!
Ty almost 2 years ago from NYC
Inspiration- that is the key to all that we do.
I was having problems with seeing an idea that could lead to an insight on how to change myself, less known the world, but to hear this Kermit the Frog inspiration,has opened a line of communication with myself, that I can live my dreams and that changing the world is changing oneself.
