From Muppet Wiki

Good Morning America is a breakfast television news and talk show broadcast on the ABC television network; the show has been airing five days a week since November, 1975. The program is currently hosted by Diane Sawyer, Robin Roberts, Christopher Cuomo, and Sam Champion. Longtime anchor Charles Gibson left the program in 2006 to become the lead anchor of ABC World News. Weekend anchors include Kate Snow.

The Muppets have appeared on the show many times. They are a particular favorite of Gibson's, and Kermit the Frog appeared on Gibson's final broadcast in 2006 to say goodbye.

In 1992, the Muppets appeared in a series of ten weekly sketches produced for Good Morning America, spoofing current events of the day -- the presidential election, the Winter Olympics and tax day. See below for details and video clips.
