Was Jim also a ventriloquist. It seems that when I'm watching clips of interviews of Jim with Kermit at the same time and they include both of them on the screen together he works very hard and throwing his voice to keep the appearance up. Is this true or is it that they are just on screen so little at once together that I want this to be true? I can't seem to find any reference to this anywhere and when I search if this has ever been discussed before here the search feature throws out the word ventriloquist. Go figure.
