As the creator of The Muppets and Fraggle Rock, Jim Henson earned his place as an American icon. Celebrate this man, along with his best-known creation, with the Funko Pop! Jim Henson with Kermit Vinyl Figure.
Kermit the Frog first appeared on May 9, 1955, on the premiere episode of the television show Sam and Friends. That initial puppet was made from one of Jim Henson’s mother’s old coats, and the eyes were each a half of a ping pong ball. Jim Henson was the puppeteer and voice for Kermit the Frog from 1955 until his death in 1990.
Kermit gives us life, and Jim Henson literally gives Kermit life—so therefore, Jim Henson gives us life. The artist, puppeteer, inventor, filmmaker, and legend is now a stylized Funko Pop! figure, complete with a Kermit puppet in hand!
