The two best Kermits I've ever seen were the original Fisher Price one and the Macy's Kermit the Frogtographer. Is there some sort of reluctance to use cardboard stiffeners in the mouth or plastic eyes? Still, I think the last Animal was one of the best ones we've got since it's pretty much impossible to get that dead on Animal look... and half the time they go for that pink fuzzy lollipop look. Same thing that bugs me about bald Cookie Monster plush. It seems with Fozzies, they're very reluctant to have the nose close to the eyes.
