Weekend at Kermie's

"In 2007, Kermit showed up on 'America’s Got Talent,' sharing a cheesy duet of James Taylor’s 'You’ve Got a Friend' with a contestant. What was strange about this cameo (besides that it wasn't at all funny) is that Disney didn’t use Whitmire for it. The frog was puppeteered by another guy than the other guy. Kermit had been Weekend-at-Bernie-ed. And as I watched, I wondered, on behalf of all Muppet fans, how did we get here?"
