Vogel has worked with Henson and the Muppets since 1996, beginning as an assistant puppeteer on Seseme Street. He takes over from Steve Whitmire, who had played the part since Jim Henson passed away in 1990. Whitmire had dismissed by Disney last fall. Henson created and performed the role since he created the famed green amphibian for a local TV children’s program in 1955.
