"It's not easy being green," sings Kermit the Frog.
Jim Henson created Kermit. He created Big Bird. Bert and Ernie are his puppets. Jim created Grover, too. He never thought that people would like his puppets. Puppets became his business.
Jim Henson was born on September 24, 1936. He was born in Mississippi. Jim's family then moved to Maryland. He loved TV. Jim thought it was amazing. He couldn't believe that what he was watching was happening somewhere else.
