Kermit the Frog Rediscovers His Voice With Matt Vogel

There is a new puppeteer giving voice to Kermit the Frog — but it is the same clear, can-do message that have made the muppet an icon.

New Muppeteer Matt Vogel made his vocal debut Monday in a "Muppet Thought of the Week" video posted on YouTube.

"Dreams are how we figure out where we want to go – life is how we get there," he says in the 27-second clip.

"I'm headed this way," he says moving out of the frame, only to pop back, and say, "My mistake, it's this way," bouncing in the opposite direction.

Vogel has worked on "Sesame Street" and also operates the Muppets Floyd, Constantine, and Sweetums. He is only the third puppeteer to take on Kermit the Frog full time since the character was created in 1955, replacing former puppeteer Steve Whitmire, who began work on "The Muppet Show" in 1978 and inherited the role of Kermit when creator Jim Henson died in 1990.

Whitmire was fired in October 2016 for what he later called his "opinionated communication style," the Los Angeles Times reported.
