Is that 60-foot balloon supposed to resemble me?



In 1977, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade introduced a Kermit balloon. However, even though he made a cordial personal appearance, other Muppets revealed that Kermit was actually not at all pleased. He said privately that the balloon made him "look fat" and had a "retarded expression." Due to his contract with Jim Henson, though, he had to go along with the pretense.
