If Kermit the frog sounds a little strange, there's a reason.

FOX's Michelle Pollino reports: 

"Hi ho, Kermit the frog here."

Kermit The Frog has a new voice: Steve Whitmire has left his role after voicing the character since Muppets creator Jim Henson's death in 1990. According to the Hollywood Reporter longtime Muppets performer Matt Vogel will be taking over the role...

Vogel is the voice of several characters including Sesame Street's Big Bird, as well as Rizzo the Rat, Beaker... and the Count.
