The Muppets Fans Baffled By Kermit The Frogs New Voice On The One Show
Specifically, Kermit The Frog’s voice. 
As everyone’s favourite amphibian appeared on The One Show alongside Miss Piggy on Wednesday night, Kermit didn’t sound quite like his usual self.Viewers noticed that his voice had a much deeper tone as he spoke to hosts Alex Jones and Michael Ball. Opening the show tonight with one of the most stylish, talented and influential couples in the world...No, it's not Posh and Becks, say hello to Miss Piggy and @kermitthefrog! 🐷🐸 If you'd like to share anything about tonight's show post it below or email TheOneShow@bbc.co.uk. pic.twitter.com/LIlv4Dhi3L— BBC The One Show (@BBCTheOneShow) July 29, 2020The realisation was too much for many to handle...Kermit is on the One Show and HIS VOICE IS WRONG.— Mazeltov Cocktail (@NicoleBurstein) July 29, 2020clearly the real voice Actor couldn't kermit pic.twitter.com/PHTqpFAy6q— Andrew (@_A_n_d_r_e_w_s) July 29, 2020Just when you thought 2020 couldn't get any worse.Kermit the Frog's voice has changed.Disastrous.#theoneshowpic.twitter.com/kDVusUjneu— Daisy Bennett (@DaisyAmeliaBee) July 29, 2020Watching The One Show....

I was an avid muppets fan as a child and that is not the correct voice for Kermit!— Joanne Thornhill (@Jothornhill) July 29, 2020Watching #TheOneShow with Kermit on. What's happened to his voice?!!! My childhood memories are ruined! Awful.— nerdbird (@nerdsnerdyland) July 29, 2020this kermit voice is beyond appauling what happened lmao https://t.co/ISykJONEr1— Kate (@HeckinKate) July 30, 2020God I HATE the new Kermit the Frog’s voice. I get that no one can be Jim Henson but at least the last guy was a pretty good voice match. The new guy just feels like a weird knockoff. Idk how Disney of all companies can’t find a better fit.— Josh Erion (@josh_erion) July 30, 2020#TheOneShow Kermit the frogs voice has broken. pic.twitter.com/77Q1hgJR3C— Luffman75🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 (at 🏠) (@GrantLuffman) July 29, 2020What is up with Kermit the frog’s voice on #TheOneShow?! He doesn’t sound anything like Kermit!— HelloSutherland (@HelloSutherland) July 29, 2020Watching Kermit and Miss Piggy on @BBCTheOneShow. THAT’S NOT KERMIT’S VOICE! #TheOneShow#wouldtherealkermitpleasestandup#muppets#MuppetsNowpic.twitter.com/WfukiuhJu0— Cassie King (@CassieKing) July 29, 2020Muppet fans were right in thinking there had been a change – Kermit got a new voice back in 2017, when Matt Vogel took over the role from Steve Whitmire. 
Matt previously voiced the likes of Sesame Street characters Big Bird and Count von Count, and Kermit’s evil doppelgänger Constantine in the 2014 film Muppets Most Wanted.Steve had served as the voice of Kermit after taking over from Muppets creator Jim Henson in 1990, following his death. 
However, Steve was fired by Disney after 27 years in the role, with a spokesperson for The Muppets Studio saying at the time: “The role of Kermit the Frog is an iconic one that is beloved by fans and we take our responsibility to protect the integrity of that character very seriously.
“We raised concerns about Steve’s repeated unacceptable business conduct over a period of many years and he consistently failed to address the feedback.
“The decision to part ways was a difficult one which was made in consultation with the Henson family and has their full support.”Following Whitmire’s sacking, Jim Henson’s daughter, Cheryl, said Steve’s performance of Kermit “has strayed away far away from my father’s good hearted, compassionate leader of the Muppets”. 
She said: “Steve performed Kermit as a bitter, angry, depressed victim. Worst of all, in the past few years he had not been... funny or fun. Recasting Kermit is long overdue. Let’s get back to [the] true spirit of Jim Henson’s Kermit.”In a statement at the time, Steve said: “I just want you all to know that I am sorry if I have disappointed any of you at any point throughout our journey, and to let everyone know that I am devastated to have failed in my duty to my hero.”READ MORE: Muppets Studio Says Kermit Actor Steve Whitmire Was Fired Over 'Unacceptable Business Conduct' Jim Henson's Daughter Backs Decision To Axe Kermit The Frog Performer Steve Whitmire 16 Reasons Why 'Muppet Christmas Carol' Is Undoubtedly The Best Festive Film
