Kermit the Frog.
Kermit the Frog. One of the biggest known puppets in American culture. Kermit wasn't always this way though, he first started off as a struggling chew toy just trying to become famous.
Kermit was born in Toronto, Canada to a very poor family of stuffed animals. His father, an unsuccessful children's toy, tried his best to be a great father. Kermit's mother had been recycled and used in other toys for the "hip" kids. Kermit had a hard life. When Kermit was seventeen he left home to become an actor. His father doubted Kermit from the start, but Kermit knew that if he wasn't successful he would end up in the mouth of mutt, with a missing arm or eye. Kermit didn't want this.
He started working as a mascot for a small food chain in Canada until he was fired for attacking a customer. Kermit said the customer had said racist remarks toward frogs in general. Luckily the customer didn't press charges. Kermit then went into a life of drugs and alcohol, caring for no one, but his bottle of sin. He started living under a bridge in southern Canada, until one day.
A man walked up to Kermit and asked him if he would be in a small low budget TV show. This show, The Muppets, grew to be the biggest thing since canned bread. He became the most paid puppet in all of the world, even beating Elmo by a couple million. Kermit's career fell as fast as it had begun. He started to do side jobs for car company's after his show received its lowest rating ever. Sesame Street had introduced a new edgier Burt and Ernie, that appealed to children as well as adults. Kermit had now fallen into another depression.
Today, Kermit lives with other TV show wash-outs including Gary Coleman, Optimus Prime, and Gumby. Maybe one day Kermit will rise again and take the world by storm...or not!
Kermit will Rise AGAIN!
