In Muppet films, during a moment of reflection, Kermit the Frog often gazes towards the night sky and sees a shooting star. This was first established in The Muppet Movie and later reprised in The Muppet Christmas Carol. The tradition has been carried on in several subsequent films and has become a recurring theme in the Muppet franchise.
Who said that every wish would be heard and answered. When wished on the morning star?
