Kermit Love's Surprise 85th Birthday Party
If you don't know who Kermit Love is, you are at least familiar with some of his work. For many years he worked with the Muppets, and is largely responsible for the look of some of SESAME STREET"S best-known characters. Jim Henson designed the idea of Big Bird, but it is Kermit who built much of the character, and refined, improved, and codified the way Big Bird looks and works. He also built Mr. Snuffleupagus for SESAME, and created the Snuggle Fabric Softener teddy bear, and the characters for THE GREAT SPACE COASTER. Kermit also has been instrumental in nurturing and encouraging the talent of a great many puppeteers and puppet builders.
On August 5, 2001, a group of some of his friends had a surprise 85th birthday party for him.
