    Or on the rare occasion one gets a documentary.

    Crikey, is this thread still going? I'm one of Steve's biggest supporters, yet even I am bored with discussing it.

    And this is the reason why I am trying to avoid it.

    I wish the performer who departed most recently would himself get his own documentary. Twenty-seven years as one character is no small feat, but almost four decades with the Muppets...? Is that NOT the equivalent of a (doc-worthy) legacy?

    There, I'm finished -- you're free to end this conversation whenever.

    To be fair, Frank recently gave a new interview in which he discusses working with Steve, so that kind of regenerated this thread for the time being.

    True. I guess I personally didn't feel the need to discuss it since it's just reiterating everything I've already said.

    Can we unsticky this thread considering it feels like Steve has kind of moved on with his life at this point?

    Yeah, I don't think there's anything else to be said that hasn't been said already.

    Hey, did you guys hear about Steve Whitmire no longer being with the Muppets? And that Matt Vogel will be playing Kermit now? I wonder what brought this on?

    Yes, I just heard this on insert social media platform here and was very sad to hear it. I really hope he wasn't fired. I wonder who's going to be taking over his other characters. Does this mean Bean Bunny will be retired foreverr???? I wonder what David Rudman has to say about this. Has Dave Goelz ever tasted human flesh?

    OMG this is too much! I bet it's Disney's fault. I'll never trust them again, down with the Mouse! Poor Steve, he's such an angel. If anyone disagrees with me, I'll fight them in roundabout arguments forever and ever and ever and ever....

    So neither you or @D'Snowth have seen the Muppets on ABC? You really should, cause Scooter brought up his mom's boyfriend in the Hollywood Bowl show, so that means things from that show are canon now. How about after you watch each episode, you tell us your thoughts in the threads for that specific episode? You can watch them all here, just ignore the annoying pop-ups: http://newepisodes.co/watch-the-muppets-online-free/62815/about

    I wonder what the Henson children(who have had NO say in the Muppets since 2005) have to say. And I wonder how much they are being paid to say it.

    (This comment doesn't count as part of the ''joke'')

    It's been a year since he was fired, October 2016.

    Yeah, but it wasn't made public till earlier this summer.

    How dare Disney! Steve Whitmire is a god! He is the best Muppeteer in the entire universe! DISNEY IS WRONG! DISNEY WILL ALWAYS BE WRONG!

    (and if anybody out there believes I'm serious, I have a bridge in New York I'm letting go cheap)

    I'll bid $24 for the bridge. I mean, all of Manhattan Island is worth that. Right?
