Jim Henson and Kermit the Frog gave a lecture in Harvard's Sanders Theatre on June 7, 1982. The speech was written by Henson, his daughter Lisa (the first female president of the Harvard Lampoon), and fellow Lampoon writer Jay Itzkowitz. Kermit imparted some wisdom from his unique frog perspective, "Now you are just a small fish in a small pond. Soon you will be the big fish in the big pond. And I know what it's like; I know what big fish are." He added, "As you set sail on the great vacation of life, think of Harvard as your travel agent."
