WASHINGTON (CNN) -- First lady Michelle Obama welcomed a little green friend to the White House Wednesday. Kermit the Frog!

The Muppets' front man appeared with the first lady and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for a special showing of the new "Muppets Most Wanted" movie.

The advanced screening was held for military children and their families.

Before the start of the show, Kermit joked about with the first lady and General Martin Dempsey about setting off White House metal detectors despite not wearing any clothes and being a frog.
