Episode 355 – Steve Whitmire on Stan Freberg – A Child’s Garden of Freberg

Steve Whitmire’s career in puppeteering, as the voice of Kermit following Jim Henson, Rizzo the Rat and numerous other Muppets, as well has his own group of fantastical felt creatures, can trace its roots to listening to Stan Freberg and learning the rhythms of his work.  We have a great discussion this week about Steve’s career and love of Freberg.

Episode 144 – Justin Michael on The Muppets – The Muppet Show Album


He co-hosts the Before You Were Funny podcast and Batman: The Animated Podcast.  Turns out, he’s also the first person to bring The Muppets to the show.  Another surprise first turns out to be a brilliant piece of work, especially given that we’re supposed to imagine animated felt for 45 minutes.  Not only are the voice characterizations typically great, but the sound design and the joke choices are spot-on, especially the kind you need to see for full effect.  It really holds up as it’s own piece of comedy work outside of The Muppet Show itself, and was a lot of fun to talk about.
