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.” Kermit the Frog

About This Billboard

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.”

I saw this driving down the Pennsylvania Turnpike---It is a statement that supports no matter who you are you are worthy of having and living your dreams. What a funny, simple, yet very profound message from the endearing Kermit the Frog.. You are absolutely correct in that he continues to connect and be part of each generation.This is one billboard I will never forget!

Kermit exists because of Jim Henson's kind of childhood. He grew up in a KIND and CHEERFUL environment that encouraged and supported and appreciated CREATIVITY. I think there will be more Jim Hensons and Kermit-like people in the world if parents make their homes a lot like Jim Henson's.

I love the muppets and I am over 65. Jim Henson got it right when when he created them . They appeal to kids and adults and always teach a lesson as well as entertain.

It's inspiring to know that Jim Henson's creation of Kermit was derived from such a loving and accepting upbringing. There is something very simple, yet overlooked mostly in todays society about Kermit the Frog. Acceptability and kindness at its best
