Kermit and the Kermit the Frog Macy’s Day Balloon (1977)

I hope everyone is having an absolutely fantastic Thanksgiving today or at the very least an enjoyable Turkey Day. I missed the Macy’s Day Thanksgiving Parade this year but I can at least remember when Kermit the Frog served as newscaster for the balloon in his image back in 1977.

A huge thanks to the Muppet Wiki for the photo you see above.

Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Superman Balloon

1940’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Superman Balloon

Superman has always been larger then life, especially when he was a balloon in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Here is a classic photo of the Kryptonian as he is marched down the avenue during a parade in the 1940s. Over the years, the Superman Balloon has resurfaced at the parade. But for my money, nothing beat the simplicity of this old school Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Superman Balloon.
