Ahh, a bear in his natural habitat -- Hollywood.

1n 1979, Orson Welles, in the role of Lew Lord, told his assistant to prepare the standard "Rich and Famous" contract for Kermit the Frog and company. Today, 33 years later, the Muppets received their collective star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 

Star no. 2,466 was inducted Tuesday into the sidewalk universe during an official, confetti-filled ceremony at 6834 Hollywood Blvd., in front of the El Capitan Theatre. 

"I want to say on behalf of the Muppets that we are really happy to be here today and join some of the greatest names in show business," Kermit said during the event. Mr. the Frog, with Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, Animal, Pepe, Sweetums and newbie Walter, attended the momentous occasion.

CEO of The Jim Henson Co., executive producer of the 2011 film "The Muppets," and daughter of creator Jim Henson, Lisa Henson, addressed the crowd. Walt Disney Studios President Rich Ross also attended, as did Jason Segel, who wrote and starred in the latest flick (which was released today on DVD, Blu-ray, Digital Download and On-Demand).
