Kermit praises Dad as his first and greatest role model, an old-fashioned frog, though not one who smokes a pipe, wears a cardigan, or takes the kids into the den for talks. Both Dad and Kermit have spindly limbs and voices of variable pitch. Kermit is frequently asked if his dad would be interested in being a contestant on ''[[Jeopardy!]]'' during Celebrity Parents Week. When Kermit was born, Dad cried out, "It's a boy and a girl and another boy and another girl and another boy and..." until he lost his voice. Kermit also credits both Dad and [[Kermit's Mom|Mom the Frog]] for encouraging him and his innumerable siblings to follow their dreams. ==Other versions== *In the 1991 [[Muppet Kids]] book ''[[I Want to Go Home]]'', [[Kermit (Muppet Kids)|Kermit's]] dad is briefly glimpsed, letting [[Fozzie Bear (Muppet Kids)|Fozzie]] help him wash the dishes. He and [[Kermit's Mom]] are understanding when Fozzie asks to go home, with Dad saying he had a similar experience at his age. ==See also== *[[Kermit's family]] __NOWYSIWYG__ [[Category:Unseen Characters]] [[Category:Illustrated Characters]] [[Category:Muppet Kids Characters]] Return to Dad the Frog.
