Here's one thing that irritates me a bit about the new generation of Muppet Performers. Well, not the performers themselves: they're great! But I feel like it's a disservice to Steve Whitmire (I know, he's old guard), Eric Jacobson, Bill Barretta, etc, etc, that in interviews, the muppets are interviewed, not the performers, as it was in the days of Henson and Oz. On one hand, it's nice that interviewers are treating the Muppets like real creatures, but on the other hand, I really think the super talented guys/girls behind the characters need to be credited more. Everyone knows Jim Henson's name, Frank Oz's name... a lesser amount know Dave Goelz, Jerry Nelson, and Richard Hunt. But pretty much no one apart from Muppet fans know that 1) Kermit isn't performed by Jim Henson's son, 2) That Eric Jacobson is doing Piggy and Oz's characters, and that Oz doesn't perform anymore, and so on. I guess it's nice that the Muppeteers don't have ego problems.
