    Kermit the Frog Leads 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' and - Yahoo! News 04/03/06

    Press Release from Yahoo! News - April 3, 2006
    Kermit the Frog Leads 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' and Delivers Family an Escape Hybrid

    Kermit the Frog fills in for Team Leader Ty Pennington on the April 9 edition of ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."
    As part of the show, Kermit the Frog presents the Craft Family of Hondo, Texas with a Ford Escape Hybrid-the most fuel efficient SUV on earth.


    DEARBORN, Mich., April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- America's most loved amphibian, Kermit the Frog, will fill in for Team Leader Ty Pennington, while he lends a hand with hurricane relief in the Gulf States on the April 9 episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" airing at 8 p.m. EDT on ABC.

    No stranger to the small screen, Kermit the Frog shines in his guest- starring role as the project team leader. Kermit charms his way into the hearts of the design team and graciously works side-by-side with other volunteers to creative a more comfortable and enjoyable home for the Craft family of Hondo, Texas. In this very special episode, Todd Craft, a high school sports coach who's been a constant inspiration to his community and his family, will receive the news that they will receive a beautiful and renovated home in a remarkable seven days.

    In addition, Kermit is presenting the family with a brand new Ford Escape Hybrid. Fuel economy is very important to the Craft family since they count every penny. The Escape Hybrid can travel up to 500 miles in city driving on a single tank of gas. It actually doesn't use fuel when stopped in traffic or driving at low speeds by running in pure electric mode and gets an estimated 36 miles per gallon.

    "Kermit and the Escape Hybrid are the ultimate green team," said Barry Redler, Ford SUV Group Marketing Manager. "The Escape Hybrid was the first SUV to offer the fuel savings of full-hybrid technology and is the most fuel- efficient SUV on Earth. This no-compromise SUV shows how easy it is being green and is the perfect fit for an active family like the Crafts."
    Kermit debuted as the official "spokesfrog" for the Ford Escape Hybrid during this year's Super Bowl.

    "Working with the 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' team was a dream come true," said Kermit the Frog. "I got to help the show's fantastic designers, builders and volunteers do something wonderful for the very deserving Craft family."

    Awesome!

    I forgot that Kermie was the spokesfrog for the Escort! Now I'm even more proud that own one!

    Which is an interesting move since Disney owns Kermit and he's now representing Ford. But Disney is in close connections with GM with TestTrack, etc. So it's an intersting set up.

    This will also be the second presentation of the Muppets on the show. Last spring they were on to "help" (right around the Muppets Wizard of Oz showing) and Miss Piggy fell in love with Ty. It was cute.

    I hope Kermit has the bullhorn again like he did last time. Next time Ty's out, I want Pepe to fill in for him. Now that would be an interesting episode.

    I sure hope you mean Rizzo the Rat. And both would make for interesting episodes. Anything but Miss Piggy, please!
