Kermit the Frog runs smack dab into reality, and then overcomes it

This is a classic episode from Sesame Street, which I actually remember. Reality (via Bob McGrath) throws Kermit a curve ball, and for a moment he’s off his game. Watch to see how he recovers and leaves triumphant – it’s inspiring.


  1. Rufus McCain says

    A moment of Peircian triadic concelebration that creates community, crossed with Kierkegaard’s “comic as incognito of the religious.”

    (I can’t wait for angelmeg’s response to that!)

  2. Rufus McCain says

    I forgot to mention the element of angst that impels Kermit forward towards openness to the triadic/comic resolution in the direction of the religious (and the possibility of a “leap” — get it? — into transparent, authentic existence under God).

    “It might not be easy being green, but it’s the only way to be me.”

    — Kermit the Frog

    Rufus, that is inspiring. My advice: forget about the lawn, and the dishes and cleaning out the garage as well.

    Perfect, Angelmeg.
