Throwback Thursday: Too Late for Kermit Letterfrog!

Last night was David Letterman's last "Late Show," and with it caps a 33 year career in late night television. 

What better way to honor him then with a Throwback Thursday "Too Late" Top Ten list!

Here we go:

9. The image first appeared in "Kermit the Frog's 1996 Advertising Parodies!" calendar

8. "Too Late" was used for the month of January

7. it was released as a poster

 6. and as a t-shirt

5. with its own Top Ten list on the back!

 4. "David Letterguy" made his was to Sesame Street in 1996

3. Johnny Fiama was accused of stealing Letterman's bit with his "Top Ten Reasons Chicks Dig Me" segments on Muppets Tonight's 'The Johnny Fiama Show'

2. The "Too Late" image was a big part the Muppet Parodies product line - the tag line was "The Sincerest Form of Flattery"
