Oh my god, that had me dying! :big_grin: whoever made that had too much time in their hands.

Now I'm just pretending that's Grover playing the drums, Elmo playing bass, Herry Monster playing lead guitar and Oscar playing rythym in that song.

Has David really ever done a Jim-type of character though?
Not necessarily, but like Shane's previous tongue-in-cheek comment, he did perform Peter Cratchit in MCC, and did a decent Kermit-esque voice for that character.

Gee, I wonder how Louise Gold would sound as Kermit...

Heh. I love how this thread has become "I wonder how anybody but Matt would sound as Kermit." Come on, do you guys have that little confidence in him. :stick_out_tongue:

Kidding. Hence the :stick_out_tongue: that at least two people are likely going to ignore.

Could be? There's two different versions of Kermit's dialogue from THE MUPPETS CELEBRATE JIM HENSON.

Well, you can take this with a grain of salt, but a friend of mine who performs on Sesame Street confirmed the "Steve Whitmire is an ego maniac" story, and said it was one of the reasons he was ousted as Ernie. :frown: Pretty disappointing.

Again, it's not a one sided thing. I guess Brian Henson is a pretty big jerk, too.

No way! Matt is where it's at!

My feeling is that this was all done in an unhealthy way and neither side looks very good. It's easy to sympathize with Steve, but his blog and interviews haven't really been helping his case very much.
