    Caroll said he was one of the people who auditioned for Big Bird, but he was nowhere near the voice.

    I thought it was the opposite way around that the puppetry was off and Noel couldn't handle the voice.

    I must confess that I'm worried about Steve. I'm sure he's fine and taking a break because there has been nothing for him to do (sadly), but idiots on Reddit have been saying that Disney fired him because he was being difficult. I don't believe them at all, but it doesn't help my stupid anxiety.

    Oh, that is scary. I really hope these are just lying trolls looking for attention. But if it is true, I wonder what they would mean by him becoming increasingly difficult to work with. Was he too opinionated on set? Is he secretly an A--hole?
    Is he mentally ill? What the heck is the matter?!? And if it is true, why must they keep these things so quiet? And I guess it is odd that Peter Linz played Statler that one time, since they're usually very strict about each character having a consistent performer (even more so than SST).
    But, let's not lose our heads yet. Maybe we should ask one of the Muppet performers on social media. If we don't get a response from any of them any time soon, their silence could very well be a confirmation.

    Just remember, absolutely nothing has been confirmed or implied by anyone who works with Steve or at Disney. Also, this isn't the first time Muppet fans have wondered where Steve was (remember the America's Got Talent incident?) So, let's not worry too much.

    Same with JimandFrank, I could care less about the new Muppet Babies or muppet babies in general.

    Oh god, this is kind of frightening. Steve has been with The Muppets for over 20 years. I hope they're wrong, but it also makes perfect sense.

    Why does it make sense? The Reddit guy said that Steve was fired from 'Henson'. Steve moved on from Henson over to Disney in 2004.

    I saw that a few months ago! I don't know what to believe. Part of me doesn't believe it, but, then again, it would explain a lot - such as his departure from Sesame Street, the abrupt ending of the Pigs in Space web series although he had mentioned seven episodes were to be filmed, his apparent absence in Muppet Guys Talking, and the fact that none of his characters have appeared in the Thoughts of the Week Videos.

    • Steve left Sesame Street so that Ernie wouldn't have to compete with Steve's limited availability since The Muppets were getting busier and busier at the time.
    • The lack of Pigs in Space should be irrelevant to Steve's situation since he was there to shoot the actual skits.
    • For Muppet Guys Talking, there could be a variety of reasons why he wasn't there. Considering it was done 5 years ago, it has nothing to do with the past 7 months.
    • Thoughts of the Week was most likely done in New York or LA and could have been filmed months and months ago. Steve was probably in Atlanta because they didn't need him for a few short clips.

    I think The Muppet Thoughts Of The Week were filmed in NY because, most if not all of the performers were ones that worked for both Sesame and The Muppets.

    Eric, Matt, Peter, David...Yeah, you're right. If they had filmed them in LA, they would've asked Bill Barretta to join in.

    And Dave Goelz since he lives in the area.

    Idk. It would explain everything like LaRanaRene said.
