Don't freak out! Henson is NOT re-inventing Kermit or taking him away from his real-life puppet world…
BUT, the company is creating an animated version of the classic 1970's Toad and Frog tales that were written and illustrated by Arnold Lobel!
Toad and Frog are two very different amphibian friends who, through every-day experiences, share important and poignant life lessons.
Jim Henson's daughter Lisa Henson is set to produce, with Adam and Adrianne Lobel in the executive seat.
AND, Hey Arnold writer Craig Bartlett shall pen the script, with Cory Edwards directing!
