- Reaction score
Another thing I would like to mention, and I hope it does not sound nit-picky, but a ton of the characters sound off, very off. First the good ones. Steve Whitmire really scores big, making spot on voices for Link Hogthrob and The Newsman, and obviously Kermit, though I am referring to the more recent recasts. Also Matt Vogel does a mean Floyd Pepper and he is also really good with Sweetums, but this is basically where the good ones END. Now, the bad ones, and unfortunately there are a lot. First off, Janice, does not even sound like Janice, she sounds like a fan impression of Janice. David Rudman just does not do it for me, it sounds too high pitched, and I cringed at her one line. Not to mention, Scooter also sounds way off, but it is not as dire as Janice. Meanwhile, Sam sounds a little too much like Fozzie, and he sounds far less commanding. Also Lew Zealand sounds way off, and in fact, I do not remember seeing a fish in his hand throughout both TM'11 or MMW, talk about in character. Bill Barretta just seems to be doing Bobo when he performs Rowlf or Dr. Teeth, so they honestly do not sound like them. While the voices do not matter too much to me, I am just seeing that the voices are not all really that well.
