Fan Mail

    I'd love to write some letters requesting autographs, but being in Canada, it gets pretty expensive to send 'International Reply Coupons' with every letter, not to mention the postage to the U.S.

    I have gotten a few autographs in the past, it's been a couple of years since I wrote fan letters. I'd love to have autographs from Steve Whitmire, Eric Jacobson, Matt Vogel, David Rudman, Dave Goelz, and Bill Barretta. I know I could use the Sesame Street address for some of them.

    I was on Fanmail biz and someone gotten a reply from Dave Goelz from this address within the last month:

    Muppet Studios
    350 South Buena Vista St.
    Burbank, CA 91521

    So I wrote to Chris Cerf two years ago and he sent me back this signed collage I made featuring Little Chrissy and the Alphabeats, The Beetles, Bruce Stringbean, How Now Brown and the Moo Wave, Dr. Thad and the Medications, and the "One Way" lead singer. Quite the SS Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame, I must say....

    And a few days later, I heard from Jerry Nelson for the second time since I last wrote to him. Like with Chris, I sent him a collage I made, but this one had Baby Rocky, Mr. Chatterly, Nick Normal and the Nickmatics and Lord Hog (the London Hog), and it came back signed!

    Earlier this year, I wrote to Amy Van Gilder, and she sent me back this image I found on Muppet Wiki of her with assorted TMS folk (Gonzo, Uncle Deadly, Animal, etc.) signed, a nice letter, AND an image of the Grasshopper from the Bernadette Peters episode of TMS!

    I've also sent fan mail and e-mail to voice actors since 2003, and here's the list:

    Nancy Cartwright
    E.G. Daily
    June Foray
    Tara Strong
    Corey Burton
    Katie Leigh
    Maurice LaMarche
    Kath Soucie
    Cheryl Chase
    Jennifer Hale
    Frank Welker
    Michael Bell
    Grey Delisle

    So I want to get my copy of Caroll Spinney's book (as well as the 40th anniversary book) signed by him but it looks like I'll never really get the chance to meet him personally, so I want to send him my two books for him to sign. So my question is, would it be acceptable for SW to give it to him if I packed the two books up in a package with a letter and asked him to sign it? Anyone who's done it before, how long would it take?

    I"ll post here if I hear anything...so excited now!! :D

    So anyone know where we write to these days to get autographs of Muppets/puppeteers? I really would love a Walter autographed picture to hang on the wall. Astudent got me a Kermit one years ago (Signed as Kermit and Steve WHitmire)

    Does anyone know if the above adress for Dave Golez is still current? I want to ask him for a photo of the Fraggle Five.
  7. Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    Which is the best place to write to get a picture of Kermit? I know they don't have a shortage of those! XP
  8. meepmuppaphones Active Member

    Few questions.

    1. What addresses do I send the letters to for the respective puppeteers (I'd like to write to Frank Oz, Jerry Nelson, Dave Goelz, and Steve Whitmire)
    2. If I send it to Frank Oz and Jerry Nelson, will they give me signed photos of Muppets or themselves (I mean, they are retired and everything...)?
    3. Would they give me photos of some characters that aren't that main character-ish (ex. Lew Zealand, Sam the Eagle, Crazy Harry, etc.)

    Does anyone know where the best place to write to Steve is? I'd love to get an autograph picture of Kermit or heck just even a Kermit photo.

    I'd love to know as well. I'm thinking about calling Disney and asking them, maybe I'll run the address in post #541 above by them and see if that's still current.

    There's got to be an easy way to get fanmail to our favorite Muppeteers and Muppets!! :D

    I know! The chances of me ever meeting them in person are well...slim to none so a picture is about as close as I can get! Plus I'd love to be able to tell Steve what a great job he does with Kermit. :)

    Can't wait to try out these addresses. Really wish we had some updated addys for all of the different Muppeteers! :) Wish me luck!!!

  13. Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    I know! Anyone have any updated addresses? Better start writing now before they get super busy with the new movie!
  14. andrew New Member

    Hello all! Does anyone know the best address to send fanmail to Brian Henson? Thanks!
  15. Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    I'm assuming that would be the Jim Henson Company you'd wanna write to.

    This is the address I got off the website:
    Hollywood: Company Headquarters
    1416 North LaBrea Ave.
    Hollywood, CA 90028

    Does anyone know where I can write to/contact Bill Barretta? I have been searching the web several times over and still no adress. Could anyone help me? :concern:
  17. Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    I know he has a twitter account. Probably the best way to write him though is maybe the Jim Henson Company. The address is above somewhere. I wrote to Steve Whitmire through Disney although that probably wasn't the smartest thing as who knows how Disney handles fanmail. I don't really think Disney would make any effort to make sure letters get to puppeteers so I might even write another one to the Jim Henson Company.

    Thanks, I actually sent out three letters to the Walt Disney Company today, so hopefully I'll hear back in six months :rolleyes:. I will definitley be writing to the Jim Henson Co. though.
  19. Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    I just wrote one to Steve the beginning of last month so I don't expect to hear anything back from him if anything for a long while. I know someone on here wrote to him last August and still has yet to recieve anything. :/ I think it's mostly busyness though. Even though the movie is long gone in the theaters their still keeping busy making apperances at certain events. I know Steve and Bill were just recently in London promoting the DVD release there. And their set to appear in Canada next month at the Just For Laughs Festival... so ehh looks like their not taking a break anytime soon. :S

    Don't mean to burst your bubble ( it already burst mine ). But, I just checked the JHC website, and it said:

    "In order to meet our production deadlines, we are not able to respond to non-business emails."
    So much for that. :(

    I hope Steve responds to your letter!
