Kermit Goes to the Doctor
In the latest of Kermit’s wacky adventures, Kermit takes to the man in white. After a bit of a scare with Miss Piggy, Kermit decides it is probably best he get tested for whatever diseases may be lurking beneath the surface. You wouldn’t believe the new friends Kermit meets in the waiting room of desperation in this cross-over event. You think only Big Bird and anyone who owns a TV can see Mr. Snuffleupagus? Well, that is not the case! The adventures Kermit and Mr. Snuffleupagus go on in that waiting room are sure to astound and amaze you! There was no Highlights unturned, no People magazine unthumbed through and no episode of Regis and Kelly unwatched (except for all the ones that weren’t on that morning). The waiting room adventures were just the beginning.
When Kermit’s name gets called and he goes to see the doctor, he is in for the awakening of a lifetime. Turns out, being green is a symptom of an autoimmune disease. It is literally not easy being green, his joints have never properly developed and are constantly inflamed. Not even Dr. House can save Kermit from certain death.
Kermit Goes to the Doctor is the story of new friends and new discoveries and how one frog learns he only has one month to live. How will he live when he knows there is a time line? How will the other muppets deal with Kermit’s hard to see friend, Mr. Snuffleupagus? Is laughter the best medicine? Time will tell. Only not too much time, cause he doesn’t have a lot of it. But he is pretty old so there shouldn’t be too much mourning. Plus, he’ll get a lot of death bed action.
