No, I agree Whitmire has done an AMAZING job with Kermit. Big flippers to fill, if you'll pardon the expression. And I have no problem with a depressed Kermit. Makes him a well-rounded, full-blooded character. It's more about the writing of Kermit as an inspirational speaker, rather than a level-headed, sometimes a little on-edge but tolerant and chivalrous, joke-cracking frog. But that might come later. He's definitely more Kermit than he has been in a long time (again, no fault of Whitmire, who is simply amazing.) @Beauregard: They've been doing that since the movie came out. Kermit saying "it's just a movie; we've been together the whole time. I live in a swamp, not a mansion," etc, etc. As for Walter. I understand his purpose in The Muppets film, but I really don't think he's necessary from here on in. Peter Linz is an INCREDIBLE performer, and I think he should stick with the team. But Walter... how can I say this? He's just not an interesting enough character to keep around. His arc is done. His function - introducing the world to the Muppets again - is complete. This is a personal preference, I know. I just don't care for Walter that much, especially with some really great Muppet characters being sidetracked in his favor.
