He sounds great now, almost like Jim Henson but why was he chosen orginally for the voice of Kermit? Was he his understudy?
The first time Steve did kermit was in 1990 in "The Muppets Celebrate Jim Henson"jeffkjoe said:Interesting to note:
Jim Henson died in 1990, and the first appearance of Steve Whitmire's Kermit was Muppet Christmas Carol in 1992 and the first appearance of Steve Whitmire's Ernie was Sesame Street New Year's Eve in 1993.
Must have been a tough 2 years to get a replacement.
That's what a lot of people think but it was most certainly Steve.Vic Romano said:Really? Someone always told me it was Brian Henson.
yeah. "What a great song. I knew you guys could do the tribute for Jim."Beauregard said:What was Steve's first line as Kermit? Is it the "I knew you guys could do a tribute for Jim" after "Just one Person...?"
