Maybe you remember Kermit’s last trip to New York City with his friends from the Netherlands some years ago. There were so many things to see, so he decided to go there again.

Kermit was so excited to fly to New York that he arrived at the airport early. As he had not eaten this morning he tried one of the sunflower pretzels.

  • Oh my, what a nice trip that was! I have been to New York many times, and always found more to see than before. All these albums are so great! It is neat to see everything through Kermit’s eyes! I am waiting for more travels now. Thank you so much, Markus and Conny and Kermit! The warmest regards, Katherine

  • I was on flickr, and typed in Kermit and found one of your pictures. I am a huge muppet fan. This is an amazing site and you have the sweetest looking Kermit I have ever seen =)

  • I am glad you found our site! Thanks for the compliments! :-)

  • Wow, I like your homepage it’s a wonderful idea and the picture are so good. I really like it.

    Greetings

  • Thank you! We are happy to hear that you like our pics!

  • Kermit, your website is sooo refreshing! Keep it up!

  • Bring KERMIT to NZ … Rachelle will put you up at her house. He could try bungy jumping , Sky Tower, Snow planet , white water rafting … come on over … its better than Australia!

    • Hey guys, thanks for the invitation. I would love to do bungee jumping or other cool stuff, but unfortunately, I am already back at home in Germany. Maybe we wil have the chance to visit NZ someday, I am sure we would have an awesome time! Cheers, Kermit

  • Your site is great! We were in NYC on Saturday (3/20) and you took a photo of Kermit with my son in the background- he was wearing a Kermit hat. It was at South Street Seaport. We all got a kick out of it! Would love to see the photo!

  • KERMIT, it is not funny anymore we are getting board at your pictures why cant you put funny ones on the website .

    Can I just give you some advise come to New Zealand and visit US (Shells and Tash)

    NZ is way Better than the other countries you will find that it is really beautiful and smells fresh. If you come to NewZealand i will pay for you to visit the most popular beach

    • Hi Shellz and Tash, I am sure NZ is a really great country, but it isn’t fair that it is better than other countries. There are so many really nice places around the world – personally I cannot say that there is one particular place which is best. I am sure that we will come to NZ someday and we will let you know before we come. I am looking forward to visit the beaches with you guys! :-)

      Cheers,
      Kermit

  • Hi Kermit thanks for the reply

  • As I’m off to New York in July this gave me some great tips! I will be taking Fozzy Bear with me and hope to create some magical moments with him such as kermit enjoyed, he’s jealous of Kermits adventures so time I take him around the world too!

  • Gold, Jerry! I was in the US in July/August 2002 and spent 4 days in NYC – what a great city. These photos brought back great memories of the Empire State Building, Times Sq, the South Street Seaport, the Rockefeller Centre, Liberty Island, Central Park, Seinfeld’s restaurant, the Beacon Theatre and Broadway. My view from the top of the Empire State Building was miserable because it was overcast and humid. I’m very jealous, Kermit! PS: Take Shellz & Tash’s advice and visit Australia and NZ soon (don’t forget to come to South Australia when you’re here – it’s not better than anywhere else, just great in its own right).

  • Hi Guys – really great site, this has really brightened up what is a pretty sad time for me, thanks for the laughs :) it’s added as a favourite

  • Kermit!! Don’t trust that Santa Claus!! He is a zombie and wants your brain!!

  • Excellent!!! I was in New York last week and I love the Muppets Show!
    Your idea is totally GREAT!

  • I google NIKE marketing and found your Kermit. Nice JOB for this website.
    Since I am from Asia, I must recommend you and Kermit to visit “TAIWAN”. It will be great for Kermit’s Asia fan and he can meet the hometown of “LINSANITY”. HA….
