- Reaction score
Yeah. Like we said before it's better to keep the character alive with a recast than to retire the character altogether:If there's one thing I'm sick of saying, myself, is that certain fans whine when a character isn't used because the performer is no longer with them (for various reasons) and then when they bring them back they say "[so and so] doesn't sound the same." The wonderful Catch 22 of "I hate the new characters and want the old ones back, but I want them to sound exactly the same."
: Then to retire the character!
Like they did with Mrs. Krebbapple on "The Simpsons" when Marcia Wallace passed on. When we think about it, it's a good thing that they didn't do that with the Muppets. Can you imagine a world without Kermit after Jim Henson's passing? It's best to have these characters live on even if they do sound a little different.
