Steve Whitmire (Kermit the Frog and Ernie since 1990) no longer with the Muppets.

  1. Agreed. That is exactly how Kermit should sound and act. At least... exactly how my memory recalls it. If you hadn't told me it was a new guy, I'd never have known.

    I really don't like Matt Vogel's Kermit. People keep telling me he sounds more like Jim's Kermit, but I'm just not hearing it.

    Well, he sounds more like Jim than Steve did, but I can still easily tell the difference between Jim and Matt (obviously).

    Jim had a natural quality his voice. I don't know how to pinpoint or name it, but it carried over to his characters. That characteristic somehow wasn't missing from Steve's (fully developed) Kermit, but I'm not hearing it so far in Matt's. I'm going to give him a chance and hope he grows into the role, like Steve did.

    This was Steve's first appearance as Kermit. It's not very good, but he got better as he grew into the role. I'm optimistic Matt will do the same.

    I'm starting to feel a little bit better about Matt Vogel's Kermit. Now if you'll excuse me, I have something in my eye.

    Me too. We must both be cutting onions, eh? :)

    I'm starting to hear the "more like Jim" everyone else is hearing. I think Matt still has room for growth (like Steve did at the beginning), and I have more confidence that he'll be up for the challenge.

    I felt the same way at the crappy camera work (cellphone pointed at a monitor) and the AutoTune on the vocal. :realmad:

    There was AutoTune?

    My curse is I can almost always tell when it's there.

    You can? Where was it noticeable?
