November 24th Will Forever Be Known as The Day The Muppets Sang “Bohemian Rhapsody”

It’s great to hear that they’ve pretty much perfected Kermit’s voice, at last. From what I’ve seen and heard, whoever’s been voicing him since Jim died didn’t quite figure out how to do a good impression until now. (Is that Brian Henson?) Anyway, good to hear Kermit get his voice back.

    heck, i was most impressed with Dr. Teeth!

    so, is Frank Oz not doing voices anymore? I thought he was.

    Steve Whitmire is doing Kermit these days, so I’m fairly certain that’s his voice. He also has voiced Ernie on Sesame Street since Henson’s death.

    I also had the same thought when I heard Kermit. In fact, I thought this was the strongest vocal outing in a long time. I think every one has been replaced (except Dave Golez’s Muppets, such as Gonzo) from when The Muppet Show was on, and it seems like everyone had a great handle on their characters. I hear they’re going to do more classic rock songs in the future, and I’m looking forward to them.
