    Does anyone know how to contact Steve Whitmire? I work at Delta and have the new Sky magazine and would love to get him to sign it.

    I tried contacting Sesame Workshops but no luck.

    Hmmmm.......
    That would be a tough one. You have have to get him through Disney or something. The retired puppeteers may be easier to contact, I know Jerry Nelson used to post here on the forum. But he hasn't been on here since 2006. :(

    I haven't tried Disney. I read from a few people that did and got nothing...

    Yeah it would be almost impossible to contact Disney. If you do get anything, let me know :)

    Try the Sesame Workshop address. That might work, if not Muppets Studios in California. I written to Frank Oz to the Sesame Workshop address and I thought.....he's really really busy now a days, suddenly I got his autograph picture. It's really cool. I have it on my wall next to a print out picture of Jim Henson and George Lucas as well as several dozen Jim Henson pictures all over my apartment of course. LOL I wrote to Jerry Nelson and I'm still waiting for a response. It took about a year to hear back from Frank but it was totally worth it. :)

    I have found that mailing Henson letters works the best

    Is that Muppet holding company one still good? I had a student write that one (I think) many years ago (just after Disney got a hold of the muppets) and he got me an autograph from Kermit/Steve Whitmire. Its one of my most prized possessions. I've been trying to see where I can get a hold of a Walter/ Peter Linz autograph to hang next to it. Might just try that address then.

    Woah woah woah... All I have to do is mail a letter to one of these addresses and I'll get a reply? That is so epic.

    I was once a Muppet puppeteer, you all can talk to me here. I never performed any of the major characters though, I was only a background guy.

    Bittersweet. It was great to work with the Muppets, of course. But being a pro puppeteer is less than ideal, unless you're one of the main puppeteers. Otherwise, the jobs are few & far between.
