Well, when it comes down to it I am a Muppet fan and not a Muppet performer fan. I want what is best for the Muppets, and if that means one of there core performers had to go then so be it. Don't get me wrong, I love the work Steve has done with the Muppets, but maybe it is time for a change.

I also understand that once you get fired from a job, regardless of how good you were the chances of you getting that job are slim to none.

My only hope now is that Disney will find a vision for the Muppets, and be able to use them in all there projects. I also hope they have something planned for some kind of internet presence since the Thought of the Weeks are over. It wasn't the best content but at least it was something.
