Oh, okay. I listened to that and I noticed the slight difference in :smile:'s voice there, but maybe it's just my ears because I just read Duke's post about Steve rerecording those lines. So I'm not sure about that one.
Yeah, he re-recorded them later on. The "fake" Kermit voice was kept in for this early edition of the game, though. You can hear the redubbed version here.

Oh, okay. That makes more sense then. Lol. I'll listen to that and I'll listen to the first one again as well when I get a chance and make some comparisons.

You're not alone, really, I notice a number of people here who have noted a difference in Kermit's personality with Steve as well - a mellow, almost subdued personality in comparison to Jim's easily flustered Kermit who was quick to fly off the handle.
Well, Steve's :smile: had his share of outbursts too, specifically in MTI and VMX, but I see what you mean. It was more common with Jim's :smile:.

When Dave leaves (which should NOT happen in a very long time) I think Peter would be a good recast. I hear a similarity in his voice for Gonzo.
I could actually picture Marty as :concern:. I noticed in 90s movies, Gonzo's voice does sound a bit like Telly's, but I'm not sure Marty really does any characters outside of Sesame Workshop.

So Disney made this decision not Steve.
Figures.
Anyone else having trouble posting on Steve's new blog? I keep trying to post a nice comment, but I keep getting taken to a coding error page.
I got the same error message, but my comment still went through anyway, so I guess there's no real concern there.
