Hot Legs

Somehow I’d missed seeing this movie until last year—this is one of my favorite scenes. It’s amazing how effortless the puppeteers make this look. If Kermit were a regular bike rider, his legs would have been even more drool-worthy for Charles Durning and his customers. And then there’s the bike’s geometry, which looks a little off. Perhaps Schwinn designed a special “frog” model?

    Oh how I love his banjo in his front basket. You know if that movie were made today, Kermit definitely would be wearing a helmet…

    Not to be all nerdy or anything but how strange the drivetrain is on the left. Kermie is also apparently a lefty banjo picker, so I thought maybe the pic was backwards but then the sign lettering is OK, so now I’m confused.
