    I have it taped off Nick@Nite from 1992, and have watched it all these years.

    I'm demonstrating how ridiculous people seem when they go as far as to criticize certain performances for "not getting the shape of Kermit's head right."

    Seriously? I've never heard anyone say that.

    Dig around Facebook and YouTube comments and you will see.

    Forget Facebook and YouTube, there's been such comments on this very forum! Mr. Remington is among them, I believe.

    I am sure Inhave made such comments as well and its a valid thing to point out. For example, i do mot like the "smile" that Steve gave Kermit in the later years of his performance. I always found it creepy. I also did not like the "c" shaped face he gave Kermit when Kermit was annoyed. It wasnt quite a "sheesh" face and was oddly rigid.

    Of course, these were consistant expressions that he gave Kermit, as opposed to a single mid expression face like is shown above.

    Yeah, the differences between the way Steve, Jim, and Matt shaped Kermit's head has never bothered me. However, the way some other performers shape the head can make it look really off. Like, they sometimes make Kermit's head way too flat, which is often how I identify that it's a stand-in performer
