Am I the only one who hates what they've done to the Fozzie puppet?

And maybe shrink his nose a little too? His nose looks a tad too big as well.

I've realized another problem I have with the current Bert puppet: either his turtleneck is too high, or his neck is too short, because that turtleneck is practically riding up on his chin to the point that it almost looks like he has no chin!

Honestly, I think Eric Jacobson did a better Fozzie voice, let's just say 12 years ago, than he does now. I don't know if that is due to age or what have you, but it's certainly slightly different.

Granted, the voice is only a small portion of the performance, lol. Nailing the character/personality is more important.

Yeah, Fozzie's voice was noticably different in THE MUPPETS (2011), there's no denying that.

Ernie's mouth seems a tad too wide for his head right now, it almost makes his whole head look rather disproportionate.
