This petition had 120 supporters


This is a petition to reinstate Steve Whitmire as Kermit the Frog's puppeteer. Steve was personally chosen by Jim Henson to take on the role of Kermit in Jim's absence. The Walt Disney Company, who now owns the rights to the Muppet franchise, has made a decision to remove Steve Whitmire as Kermit's puppeteer. Steve has done so much keeping the spirit of Jim and Kermit alive. Steve has stated that this is not what he wants at all. When Jim Henson gave the role of Kermit, he took it as a personal mission. He has dedicated his life to The Muppets and keeping Jim's dream alive. He is devastated by the Walt Disney Company's decision. He feel that he has let Jim and all of us as fans down. Steve Whitmire not only deserves to continue on as Kermit the Frog; Steve Whitmire IS Kermit the Frog. All that we ask is that you respect what Jim Henson would have wanted for HIS characters.
