Origin

The Frogman is a man-sized frog who acts as a major authority and political figure for the Yips in their country and is considered their wisest resident, despite not actually being that smart only knowing about dandy fashion and how to act smart.

He shares some similarities with Professor Wogglebug, both having been animals who gained sapience and intelligence, however unlike the Professor, Frogman is less interested in knowledge and more interested in the latest dandy fashion and acting like a superior gentleman.

Frogman was an ordinary animal in Oz until he was abducted by a bird and dropped into a pond in the Yip Country which possessed the unique and magical Skosh plant which made him grow to human size and gain sapient intelligence. The Yips then revered the mysterious Frogman as an individual of great wisdom and made him an adviser and authority figure in their country.

Frogman was among the guests attending Ozma of Oz's birthday party in the Emerald City.
