I'm happy to say, I'm starting to warm up to Matt's Kermit. I wonder, is that a new Kermit puppet, or is Matt's hand shape just different? The head looks larger.
Also, I've noticed something about Matt's portrayal of Kermit. He seems a bit more... sarcastic? Do you know what I mean? And his...

Steve released a new blog post

That's a good point but - and I'm going to over think again - when I mentioned that, I had Pig's Laundry's comment ("Is he secretly an A-hole? Is he...
I saw that a few months ago! I don't know what to believe. Part of me doesn't believe it, but, then again, it would explain a lot - such as his departure from Sesame Street, the abrupt ending of the Pigs in Space web series although he had mentioned seven episodes were to be filmed, his apparent...
