That actually sounds more ominous. I just hope that that person was basically giving a standard answer for "I dunno! beats the frog out of me!" Exactly why i'd hate to think that we're making him feel bad about it. I mean, it's not easy being green... guy's just starting out and already he has the biggest character on his arm. I'm sure he'll chime in and say what's going on at some point. And I have to say (another hypothetical) if I were a Muppeteer, I would HATE to have to been assigned Kermit... I just couldn't do it. Even if I was capable of giving a 100% perfect Jim Henson quality voice, chemistry, performance, and characterization, I'd never want that. Steve had issues with taking up Kermit at the very beginning... who wouldn't? it's a very personal character, and it was all Jim. That's the reason why we haven't heard much out of Rowlf, and why it took them 10 years to get Guy Smiley back on Sesame Street. It's tough. I don't want him to feel discouraged at all... I wanna see Steve back as Kermit as much as everyone else, don't get me wrong... I just wanna see him stick to it just in case. Who knows? With a little more practice and time he could be great at it. Like getting into a new pair of shoes... they don't feel right until you wear them out.
