Thanks to a donation from the Henson Foundation, on Tuesday, Miss Piggy, Kermit the Frog, and 19 other Muppets and well-loved characters gained their rightful place in history, entering into the collection of the Smithsonian Museum. As Kermit would say—hi-ho!
It would be easy to ruin the Muppets: Just make them modern. Why do the Muppets have so much staying power? They're real. They actually exist. Felt and batting in the era of CGI.
