Happy Birthday Steve Whitmire

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketSteve Whitmire was ten years old the first time he wrote to Jim Henson; amazingly (or not, considering) Henson wrote him back. Thus began a long and distinguished career for Whitmire which, given his relative youth, is still in its prime.

Whether on The Muppet Show, Fraggle Rock, Sesame Street, or in any of the scores of movies and other projects in which the Muppets have appeared, Whitmire has brought his particular verve and love of puppetry to everything he does.

Currently the voice of Kermit the Frog, Whitmire's other characters include Rizzo the Rat, Wembley Fraggle, and Andy Pig. He has also taken over the characters of Beaker, Ernie, and Statler, which were created by others.
