I'm going to have to disagree there. Ever since "The Muppet Show" days, Kermit was good matured, but when the other Muppets got out of line, he had to do what it took to keep them under control even if it meant losing his cool every once in a while. Just think of how you would feel if you were a boss and everyone came into the office late because of being drunk at a party. I think Kermit does all he can to handle these situations. Yeah. I've noticed that too and that's a disappointment because that's always been sort of his thing. They really need to bring back his 'okays.' Well, that would make Charlie Brown foulmouthed then. I have subtitles on my TV. Statler DID say it! I thought the word he used was 'arse.' At least according to the captioning on my TV, that's what it was. Before he's gone and I'm at the front of the line. Lol. Couldn't resist there. I can't help but wondering though if the reason we haven't seen Denise that much lately is because Kermit still has feelings for Miss Piggy. We'll have to see what the future has in store for the two of them and what will happen with Denise. You never know.
