After the untimely death of Jim Henson
in 1990, Kermit the Frog was retired from the show. Kermit appeared only in reruns of old sketches until 1998, when he popped up to do one more Sesame Street News Flash when Oscar the Grouch's pet worm Slimy went into space. Kermit was voiced by Steve Whitmire
, who has also assumed the role of Ernie since Henson's passing. However, as of 2000, another actor now plays Ernie, since the Jim Henson Company is no longer involved in the production of the show. See more
