Change can be tough.... And when it's one of our favorite muppets... WOW!
For the first time in 27 years, Kermit the Frog will be voiced by a different actor.
Steve Whitmire, who took over the role when Muppets creator Jim Henson died in 1990, is leaving the franchise. He started working with The Muppets back in 1978. He'll be replaced by voice actor and longtime puppeteer Matt Vogel. Vogel will make his debut as Kermit next week in a "Muppets Thought of the Week" video.
Kermit the Frog's voice is so recognizable, do you think it will be noticeable?
