Is it just me or has it changed? I've been listening to muppet radio all night and whenever an Elmo piece comes on, I can barely stand it. How did Kevin Clash morph Elmo's voice into the way it is today without us noticing right away? I like the old Elmo voice. The current Elmo voice sounds like a variation of Howie Mandell's Bobby from Bobby's World. I don't know why, but Elmo's current voice just makes me cringe. Tell me I'm not wrong and that Elmo used to sound different. It just seems like Kevin uses too much "bubble" in his voice when he does Elmo now. It's where you put the back of your tongue in the back of your throat and talk. It's just annoying and the pitch goes right to the bone. Anybody agree? Or am I in big trouble?
