One Cup answer: Kermit The Frog
Bonus Blog Trivia: Jim Henson created the "prototype" Kermit from a green woman's coat his mother had thrown in the trash, with ping pong balls for eyes. The original Kermit looked much more like a lizard and didn't become frog-like until his Sesame Street appearances starting in 1969.
