* {{Flanderization}}: In ''The Muppet Show'', Kermit was the OnlySaneMan (being in charge of the Muppets) but was also not above getting into mischief, playing pranks on others and snarking about or criticizing the other performers himself because of all the craziness he'd have to put up with on a daily basis. Under Steve Whitmire, Kermit's wholesomeness ended up being played up more and more and overtaking his snark, making him a blander character. This is believed to be one reason why Steve Whitmire was fired from playing the character in the late [=2010s=] to be replaced by Matt Vogel (let alone the fact that ''Series/TheMuppets'' took Kermit in the exact ''opposite'' direction and made him more cynical than before).

Under Steve Whitmire, Kermit's wholesomeness ended up being played up more and more and overtaking his snark, personality, stripping him of his flaws and making him a blander and wussier character.
