We keep getting sneak peeks of the new Muppets film, and it's making us so happy inside!

Life's a happy song when there's someone by my side to sing along.
U can bet we'll be enjoying our Thanksgiving with a trip to see Kermit and Miss Piggy!

Jim Henson would have turned 75 Saturday.
Google was kind enough to pay tribute to the late Muppets creator with its latest Google Doodle: an interactive puppet show featuring six original characters.
By using their mouse and keyboard, users could make the characters do a range of things such as looking around and opening their mouths.
One youtube user made a video (HERE) showing off their secret tricks! A lot of people made music videos featuring the little Googuppets. HERE's a popular video of them singing along to Lady Gaga's Poker Face!
Henson may have passed away, but his characters (Miss Piggy, Kermit, and Big Bird) to name a few) all live on.
The popularity of his creations — and even this tribute — proves his creative spirt is still very much alive.

The original Kermit the Frog puppet is headed for the Smithsonian!
Jim Henson's widow Jane Henson is donating the puppet, who was originally made from an old coat thrown away by Jim's mom, and 9 others to the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.
Kermit made his TV debut in 1955 appearing on a show called Sam and Friends that ran after the local news in Washington.
He's come a long way!
