The two performers of Kermit the Frog
Jim Henson (1955-1990) and Steve Whitmire (1990-present)

A list of instances in which a character was recast with another performer. Main performers are marked in bold; cases in which someone held a puppet up in the background of a group shot are not included.

If the performer performed the character for more than one production, a date range is listed.
