Does Kermit the Frog fit in The Muppets 2015 show?

    I have heard from many a source that there is no room for Kermit on a modern adult themed Muppet show. Do you agree or disagree?

    As much as the other Muppets do.

    I don't even see why this is even a question.

    I've just heard some people say that Kermit is too old school to relate to a modern era, and that miss piggy fits in the modern era better as the main Muppet. I was just asking for an opinion, I think I got my answer!:)

    No worries! But did these sources give some specifics?

    "Perhaps in 21st-century society, filled as it is with Kardashian selfies and Cyrus self-promotion, there really isn't a realistic place for a guy like Kermit. Piggy is the ethos of the age. Loud is good. Brash is better. And Kermit, having never been either, is a 21st-century nothing."

    This is pretty specific :)

    Perhaps you could provide a source for that quote...?

    Anyway, Kermit isn't the one hosting his own talk show, Piggy is. He's working quietly behind the scenes, except someone decided to make a documentary about him doing that...

    And out in the real world? He's still a celebrity. Not a huge celebrity, but neither is Piggy.

    So are you saying you agree? That outside of the behind the scenes, Kermit doesn't really fit?

    Also here's my source

    This one I think sums up the new show pretty well. Like I said elsewhere, it feels like the writers think Kermit needed to be "fixed" in some way. When, if anything, they've taken away what made him a strong leader. Thanks for sharing, Willard!
