The Muppets Really Take Hollywood, Get Long-Deserved Star on Walk of Fame

Our only question is: What took so long?!

Accomplished film and TV stars the Muppets received the 2,466th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame—or "Wocka Wocka Fame," if you will—today in front of the kid-friendly El Capitan Theatre.

"We are just really happy to be on Hollywood Boulevard today, joining some of the greatest names in show biz," Kermit the Frog, who actually already has an individual star, told the assembled crowd.

So, who are some of Miss Piggy's favorite icons?

"Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Norma Desmond..." recalled Miss Piggy.

"Norma Desmond is a fictional star," Kermit corrected her, to which she retorted, "Aren't they all?"

Speaking of which, the Muppets—TV staples since the mid-1950s and regulars on Sesame Street since its 1969 debut—are not the first fictional (and yet somehow very real) characters to be enshrined on the Walk of Fame. They join Big Bird, Bugs Bunny, Donald Duck, Godzilla, Mickey Mouse, the Rugrats, Shrek, the Simpsons, Snow White, Tinker Bell, Winnie-the-Pooh and Woody Woodpecker.

"Is it time now for moi to do my medley of every song ever written from every great movie musical ever made?" Miss Piggy, ever the scene-hogger, then asked.

"We'll see if we can get to that later in the show," Kermit offered.

Joining Kermit and Missy Piggy for today's induction ceremony were Fozzie, Gonzo, Animal, Pepe the King Prawn and Walter, the newest addition to the group. Representing for the humans were Lisa Henson, eldest daughter of Muppet creator Jim Henson, whose star is located nearby, and Walt Disney Studios chairman Rich Ross.

Of course, the day wouldn't have been complete without a project to promote. The felt-tastic entertainers' smash-hit comeback, The Muppets, is now out on Blu-ray and DVD.
