Commercial Break: Since when was Kermit White??

Before Kermit was green, America was still seeing in black and white! Check out this collection of Wilkins Coffee Commercials that may mark the beginning of the worlds love for Jim Hensons‘ Muppets. From 1957 to 1961, Henson made 179 commercials for the company.

Very humble beginnings for the great Mr. Henson. We wonder if he had any clue what he would go on to achieve. Shout out to Pickachu4352 for the vid.
