I found out by a different link my mom sent me through Facebook Messenger. But yeah. Whitmire won't be voicing Kermit anymore. I'm sadden to hear this, but very understandable of whatever the reason that may be. I really don't know how long the Muppets have been around. Probably way before I was even born. I remember my mom gave me and my brother "A Zing Into Spring" Kermit/Miss Piggy Plush (W/ Cassette Tape) and she might've done some kind of Photography thing at Target. (I don't really remember the photography thing though.) I don't have the plush anymore nor the tape. I could say: The Rhyming Song was my favorite from the tape, because it was funny and I didn't understand it as a kid. But I get it as I'm older. I also remember watching some shows I think like Muppet's Tonight, Muppet Babies, and I think that's it. (Although, it's a blur remembering them.) I do remember watching one of the newer Muppet's movie and hearing "Rainbow Connection" made me cry and inspired me to do a painting of Miss Piggy (Zing Into Spring Plush) for my Painting 1 class years ago. I could post it on here if you want me to. I'm sure a lot of us, may have memories of Kermit. I just wanted to make a post about this. UPDATE: Disney fired him. http://www.cnbc.com/2017/07/14/fired-voice-of-kermit-the-frog-says-hes-devastated.html And I will post my Miss Piggy painting on here later on.
Here is an old painting I did in Painting 1 class in Community College. I forgot what kind of painting project it is. I think it was Memories.... One thing that was a royal pain is making gold with brown and yellow. I had to keep adding a little of yellow till it looks so golden. What inspired me to make a painting of Miss Piggy is one of those new Muppets Movies. It's the one that (I think) introduce Walter and him and his brother were trying to bring the Muppets back together again. Just hearing the "Rainbow Connection" again made me tear up. So I remember my mom giving me and my brother a Kermit/Miss Piggy Zing Into Spring plush with its cassette tape. We would listen to it a number of times. I could say "The Rhyming Song" was my favorite because it was funny and didn't make any sense, as the Muppets were singing it. Despite I didn't have the plush anymore, I google-d it online and sketched it on my mini art pad and canvas. Then I had to visualize her sitting on my bed while leaning on my pillow. Sorry about my image being so big.
