Kermit Returns to "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition"

In March 2005 The Muppets appeared on ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition". In the 2005 episode Kermit, Fozzie, Piggy and Animal were on hand to help Ty Pennington and the team rebuild the home of the Harris family. Well, it looks like Ty has called his pal Kermit to come help again, this time to serve as a fill-in host.

The Hondo Anvil-Herald reported that the Kermit the Frog (Steve Whitmire) stood in for Ty Pennington, the show's regular host, this past week in Hondo, Texas as the design team gave the Craft family's house an extreme makeover.

The Craft family episode with Kermit is currently scheduled to air on ABC on Sunday, April 9, 2006. So mark your calendars, and I'll keep you posted with details once ABC releases more information on the upcoming episode.

Frankly, besides the fact that it really didn't sound like Kermit, I also was pretty unsettled watching Kermit shill Ford's massive SUV on TV... Jim Henson was a genius, may he rest in peace. The Kermit I knew and loved is dead ;-(
