The Texas Two-step and the Macarena can now move over. The latest dance craze about to sweep the nation, it is being predicted in the finer lily ponds across the U.S., is the Kermambo. Leading this dance-floor frenzy is none other than Kermit the Frog, or so it was announced this week by Jim Henson Interactive, as part of the company's launch of its latest MuppeToon, a 3-D musical extravaganza titled "The Kermambo" (and visible on the Muppet World Web site).
