Kermit, while he is no saint, has achieved a wonderful equilibrium in which a common sense and a hunger for the absurd are nicely balanced. Were he to represent common sense only, he would be a prig; if he represented only hunger for the absurd, he would just be another of the show’s eccentrics. It is the fact that he has managed to embrace both extremes that enables him to function as he does.
