Henson 1976 Show, A star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame honoring The Muppets was unveiled Tuesday in front of the El Capitan Theatre by the large, hairy ogre Sweetums and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce President and Chief Executive Officer Leron Gubler amid a burst of confetti.
“We are just really happy to be on Hollywood Boulevard today, joining some of the greatest names in show biz,” said the most famous Muppet, Kermit the Frog.
Fellow Muppets Fozzie Bear, Gonzo the Great, Animal, Pepe the King Prawn and the newest Muppet, Walter, then uttered names of fellow Walk of Fame honorees – Milton Berle, Don Knotts, Edgar Bergen and Judge Judy – with Miss Piggy mentioning Joan Crawford, Bette Davis and Norma Desmond.
Kermit than corrected her, saying “Norma Desmond is a fictional star.” Miss Piggy responded, “Aren’t they all?” Desmond was a faded star of silent movies portrayed by Gloria Swanson in the 1950 film Sunset Boulevard.
Miss Piggy then asked Gubler, “Is it time now for moi to do my medley of every song ever written from every great movie musical ever made?”
Kermit responded, “We’ll see if we can get to that later in the show.” Earlier, Lisa Henson, the oldest child of The Muppets’ late creator Jim Henson and the chief executive officer of The Jim Henson Co., said, “Now The Muppets have truly arrived with their own star on Hollywood Boulevard in this amazing location which also happens to be very near my father’s star and Kermit’s star.
