On this day in 1955 - Sam and Friends debuts on a local U.S. television channel, marking the first television appearance of both Jim Henson and what would become Kermit the Frog and the Muppets.

When I was director of marketing for the Denver Symphony I was amazed when I took Henson to dinner at a cafe on the 16th street mall. Young people kept coming over to our table, awstruck by seeing in person they had grown up watching on TV.
