He's probably got one of the most iconic voices going but it's been announced today that the man who does the voice for Kermit The Frog has gotten the sack.

Steve Whitmire has been in the role since 1990.

The decision hasn't gone down well on Twitter.




In a blog post, Whitmire said that he still felt "at the top of his game".

He also wrote "I am sorry if I have disappointed any of you at any point. I am devastated to have failed in my duty to my hero."

 

The show's production company, Muppet Studios, put out a statement thanking Whitmire for his "tremendous contributions".

Experienced Muppet performer Matt Vogel will take over as the voice of Kermit from next week.
