The latest word from behind the scenes of The Muppets franchise holds an explanation as to why longtime Kermit the Frog actor Steve Whitmire was sacked last October following one season of the rebooted The Muppet Show on ABC. I feel that I am at the top of my game, and I want all of you who love the Muppets to know that I would never consider abandoning Kermit or any of the others because to do so would be to forsake the assignment entrusted to me by Jim Henson, my friend and mentor, but even more, my hero. Whitmire was among those at the hospital when Henson passed away. While some outlets immediately began the search for his replacement, Whitmire told THR in an interview today that he was sacked for being too outspoken. I happened to get caught in the middle of a dispute on a contract classification between SAG-AFTRA and Disney Labor Relations which occurred while I was in-flight to work on the project and the associated commercial. "I have been outspoken about what's best for the Muppets since the Muppets came to Disney [2004], but the fact is I have respect for everyone who was involved in the creation of that series for their own particular contributions". Finally, speaking to one singular aspect of Kermit that particularly continues to reverberate and inspire, Whitmire spoke to the continuing magic of the character residing in, "The look he brings into the eyes of anyone of any age who meets him in person".

"I am still trying to make sense of how those two issues were egregious enough to justify ending a 39-year career without at least giving me an ultimatum at the time the issue occurred when I would have had a chance to correct my course", he added. Vogel has voiced such characters as Big Bird, Robin the Frog, and The Count. Henson was the original voice actor for the said character. "I can't take credit for that, but have been truly honored to keep Jim's spirit intact".
