“` Kermit the Frog is receiving a new voice. ABC News and the Hollywood Reporter are reporting: Steve Whitmire has left his role of giving life to the iconic Muppet. Whitmire has voiced the character since Muppets creator Jim Henson’s demise in 1990. A Muppets Studio spokesperson announced that longtime  Muppets performer Matt Vogel will be taking over the role. He has voiced such characters as Big Bird and The Count.

“`Kermit made his debut in the 1955 television program,  Sam and Friends, which locally aired in Washington, DC. Kermit was fashioned from an old coat that belonged to Henson’s mother, and was named after one of Henson’s childhood friends.

“`Representatives for Walt Disney Studios, which owns Muppets Studio, didn’t return a request for comment about the motivation behind the move; nor did Miss Piggy.
