    Even that sounded like Jim to me, the way he cracked his voice.

    Even some of the youtube posters are asking, "Don't you remember how Kermit used to sound? This is it!"

    I'll agree with that. :)

    But then again, with Jim and Steve, different puppeteers, different kermits. Kermit hasn't been "one Kermit" in a long time.

    yea but with ms piggy its about the same(but frank oz was better) and so he will probably be the new kermit so we'll have to get used to him (unless steve comes back again):):mad:

    True people haven't really critiqued new Piggy performances as much. Only that she was being insulted too much.

    It doesn't sound like Jim's Kermit to me. It sounds like Rich Little's Kermit (just realized who it reminded me of). I really did not like Rich Little's impersonation either.

    Again, Kermit is a very difficult voice to do. What most people think to be Kermit is not. I have done my "Kermit" voice for many, many people, and they all say "That sounds perfect!" when I know for a fact that it does not. I do not hear Kermit when I try to do a Kermit voice. I hear an approximation, an odd impersonation, but not Kermit. That's what I'm hearing here. Rich Little, not Kermit.

    Well the one in Letters to Santa did a good job with the personality, IMO. I think the voice was more accurate in MWoO. It's a very complex issue! :search:

    It's just interesting how even on youtube (presumably made up of some non MC members) this debate is going on. Some don't like the performance. Others are saying this is what Kermit used to sound like. I have to agree with the second group.

    im really in the middle of the two cant decide with so many opinions:eek:

    Honestly, while I think Steve's Kermit is fine, it hasn't ever really reminded me of the Kermit I grew up with. So again, I think there's been more than one Kermit for awhile now.

    so many mixed opinions its so confusing (maybe not):eek:

    Indeed, I mean it's a personal opinion thing. Though it is a rather intriguing debate!

    P.S. I just found out on Muppet Wiki that Artie Esposito was performing Kermit. This is Esposito's second public performance as the frog.

    I didn't think the voice was that bad, though something was off.

    We're still talking about this Kismet the Toad thing here? Just a little surprised that we're still updating a thread that's over two months old. It would be nice to see the real Kermit on MTV some time, or in my case on You Tube since I don't get that channel.
