    I just want to make a quick comment on how well this thread turned around. I have not seen a negative post toward another member in a long time. Nice Job everyboy.

    I'm going way off topic here to respond to both this and Frogboy's posts...

    Indeed the method of animation does not ensure a good project... a good looking one, sure... but it all comes down to story. Again, i bring my 2 examples... Pocahontas was a good looking movie, but it was the most dull, boring, and overrated thing I've ever seen come out of the Disney studios. And then take the old Bullwinkle show. Terrible Mexican animation (It even embarrassed Jay Ward and crew at points)... but the writing shone through, making it a lot more memorable, storywise.

    Of course, you could have BOTH terrible animation and visuals and terrible script... you wind up getting Clutch Cargo... or at least those terrible Pixar ripoffs made in Brazil.

    Disney had a LOT of misfires with 2-D films... and certainly Dreawmorks blanketed the market with meh 2-D films as well (long before they showed any interest in CGI).

    What it comes down to is the oversaturization of CGI movies, especially from third parties like Sony (they have no freaking business in the business if you ask me)... most of which come off gimmicky and have a general air of wannabe-ism. Mainly companies that wanna be Dreamworks, making pop culture driven, derivative Shrek clones. Did we need 2 Happily Never After movies? Did people even notice that there was one to begin with?

    Does it matter? The whole thing's just an excuse to make a Shrek Knockoff. As per my point...

    Why would we flame you? That's a good observation. Let's hope you're right.

    Today I sent postcards of support to Steve, c/o The Muppet Studios. One from me, one from SWAEHB. Just to let him know we still care about him, and are fully supportive.

    The ads were filmed before Steve dissapeared, but the launch was after, and Kermit is there, and yes its Steve.

    he;s back... and do we even need a reason why he wasn't there in the first place?

    This thread and subject are as good as closed as far as I'm concerned! He's back, he's Kermit, and there's nothing more to say. Finally... we get some happy progress on this! :)

    Doing The Kermit Dance! Yaaaaay

    Completely made my day, week, and probably month. SO relieving to have him back where he belongs.

    Kermit has come home. Let's close up the thread and declare this topic debunked and no longer necessary.

    :) Welcome back, Steve! :shifty:

    If I recall, it was a few key shills around here who erroneously insinuated that Steve had "pulled a Miss Piggy" and left all of his Muppeteering in a huff. Always sounded like hokum to me. I’m glad that’s been proven false. That kind of thing really upsets me and casts unnecessary shade on good people like Steve and Artie. I will not make the mistake of believing such members.

    Steve is Kermit. “Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!" (With much rod puppet arm waving.) :)

    ... but what if he's sharing with an alternate performer now?

    I'm hoping it was just contract negotiations or minor illness and they just felt D23 and AGT were so big they couldn't do without Kermit.

    That's something I will always wonder. Somehow, a little bit of me somehow thinks that Steve still is more comfortable with Rizzo than Kermit, and wanted to see how someone else would handle him. I don't know why I think that, I don't even believe it myself...

    Seems like whatever was going on was a temporary thing, and no matter what the truth is, the real truth is we'll never know... and as long as Steve's still performing Kermit, there's nothing we need to know.
