'The Muppets'

Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzy Bear, Gonzo and the rest of Jim Henson's felt creations are back in movie theaters, courtesy of "Muppets Most Wanted," which picks up right where the successful 2011 reboot "The Muppets" left off. As the Muppets prepare to enter the next phase of their long, long careers -- Kermit has been around since 1955 -- it's helpful to look back at where they came from to appreciate just how far they've come.
