Apple Inc. is a major manufacturer of computers and operating systems, co-founded by Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs. When the company was known as Apple Computer Inc., it produced a commercial for one of the first iMac desktops in 1998, and used Kermit the Frog's recording of "Bein' Green" for the sage-colored version.

The 1984 Apple Computer Annual Report to Stockholders featured special two-page spreads focusing on various artists and work samples they had produced on an Apple computer. One of the personalities featured was Jim Henson.

In the late 1990s, Jim Henson and Kermit appeared in the famous Think Different advertising campaign, including the commercial narrated by Richard Dreyfuss, where they appeared among such figures as Albert Einstein, Amelia Earhart, Pablo Picasso, and Alfred Hitchcock.

In 2014, an Apple-produced film (read "30-second ad") by TWBA/Media Arts Lab included a split-second image of Cookie Monster as a sticker on an Apple laptop.[1]

The Sesame Street video game Mix And Match was created exclusively for the Apple operating system.

Some iPhone applications are in development, under the Muppets and Sesame Street brands.
