Goodmorning.jpg

Good Morning America is a breakfast television news and talk show broadcast on the ABC television network; the show has been airing five days a week since November 3, 1975. Show hosts have included Lara Spencer, Diane Sawyer, Robin Roberts and Christopher Cuomo. Longtime anchor Charles Gibson left the program in 2006 to become the lead anchor of ABC World News until retiring in 2009, with Diane Sawyer taking over Gibson's spot. Weekend anchors include Kate Snow. Sam Champion is the show's longtime weather anchor.

The Muppets have appeared on the show many times. They are a particular favorite of Gibson's, and Kermit the Frog appeared on Gibson's final broadcast in 2006 to say goodbye.

In 1992, the Muppets appeared in a series of ten weekly sketches produced for Good Morning America (referred to as "Muppet Moments")[1] spoofing current events of the day -- the presidential election, the Winter Olympics and tax day. These sketches were written by Jim Lewis, Craig Shemin, and Louise Gikow, under the supervision of Jerry Juhl.[2][3] See below for details and video clips.
