Blow out the candles!

A cultural icon turns 50 today. No, it's not Disneyland (which, despite starting it's 50 year celebration last week amidst enormous publicity, doesn't actually reach its 50th birthday for another month), but rather Kermit the Frog.

Yep, Kermie turns 50 today. Of course, he wasn't actually a frog when he was first created. Just some "lizard-like" creature. And one presumes he wasn't singing about the "Rainbow Connection" for some time yet. But Jim Henson's creation was there all the same, and with the new movie "The Muppet Wizard of Oz" being prepared for release soon, Kermit definitely continues to outlast his creator in longetivity.
