    Yes, I do realise that I haven't mentioned Jim, but I think Steve deserves his own thread!

    So a very Happy 55th Birthday to our Stevie and may he have many more to come! Only halfway until the next big milestone! To think he has been brilliantly entertaining us all since he was only 18 and I doubt he'd be wanting to retire any time soon! It's been an honour keeping up with his career and I intend on doing it for quite a while!

    He's lookin' pretty darn good for a man in his mid-fifties, don't cha think?

    There is no coincidence that him and Jim share the same birthday it was fate. :)

    I actually realized his birthday was soon about a week ago... :p

    Anyway, Happy birthday Steve! Steve has done an AMAZING job with the Muppets since his start at 18. He's performed (I hope that is the correct wording...) so many characters that we know and love over the years; in fact, there's probably too many to count! My favorite of his characters though, WITHOUT A SINGLE DOUBT is Wembley Fraggle... sorry Kermit.:coy: Kermit is a SUPER close second though. :) I hope to see many more years with Steve; and hopefully, more Wembley appearances. :p Either way, he's great with Kermit and everyone else he has performed, and honestly, I can consider him (and Dave Goelz, of course) to be the most popular (and oldest lol) Muppet performers. To be honest, my life goal is to meet Steve or Dave; probably never happing tho. Oh well. :(

    Steve is fantastic! I had the pleasure to meet him at the CPA in 2011 just months before the 2011 Muppet movie.

    Happy Birthday, Steve! I applaud you and Dave Goelz for continuing to perform and voice your Muppets ever since The Muppet Show during the late 1970s and early 1980s to our technology-driven future even when seniority begins to kick in around your age; and continuing to perform Jim's characters (Kermit, Ernie, Muppet Newsman) when no one else could after he died. This goes without mentioning that ten (or I should say eleven) years from now, you will have performed Kermit just as long as Jim Henson did. So, keep up the good work!

    Happy 55th Steve Whitmire, thanks for keeping Kermit alive, and thanks for performing with the muppets since the 3rd season of TMS. Oh, and thanks for bringing Rizzo and Lips to life, and to a lesser extent, one of the best one shot characters, Trevor the Gross, happy birthday Steve.
