    Hi!
    I'm 15 (next week...)
    What brought me here? The same as everyone else: The Muppets
    Favorite Muppet: as if you can't tell already. (Robin, in case I change my avatar)
    First thing I saw on this forum: someone making frog puppets
    Occupation: I'm a junior high school student, studying for the high school entrance exam.
    The first time I saw (or heard) anything related to The Muppets is Karen Carpenter singing The Rainbow Connection. I looked up the song, found The Muppets, and loved it ever since.
    First Muppet movie: The Muppets (2011)
    Where I live: Taoyuan, Taiwan. And, by the way, I hate everything that's US only.

    I'm 18 as I type this.

    What brought me here? A picture I found on deviantart, which had a link to a fanfiction here. Sadly the fanfic (which was pretty **** good) was abandoned, but I looked at the rest of the site and thought, "Hey! This is awesome!"

    The rest is history! Sort of.

    What else? Well, I love all the Muppets! They're all hilarious in their own unique way! But my personal favourite is...er...um...mmm.... :cool:

    Well, I'm 13...and the Muppets brought me here, of course! :D I've loved them since as long as I can remember. My favorite Muppet would have to be the "weirdest of the weird, the man on saxophone...Zoot!" :cool: But, of course, I also love all of them "who am is are and be, they whom as are known as, the Electric Mayhem!" :D
    I'm also into building puppets, though so far, not with much success... :(

    :) It is really hard! If you wanna make a Muppet-style puppet, I suggest trying to use Styrofoam for the head. That's pretty much as far as I've gotten... :coy:

    *taps mic ahem ahem* Hi my name is Pinkflower7783 or as I'm known here now as "Pinky." Which I still have yet to figure out who started that anyways...I'm a Muppetholic particuarly Kermit & Piggy as if my avatar doesn't give that away. I am 29 years old and only recently came back to being a Muppet fan through the latest film and I have no idea how I got here but I'm assuming Google must be the guilty party.

    And thanks to joining this forum I have less of a life now then I did before as if that couldn't be possible. :p

    I guess some of my earlier Muppet memories include Sesame Street from my
    now-distant toddler years, and then the Muppet Show, Muppet Babies, Fraggle Rock, as well as Muppet movies on cable....

    When I started watching The Muppets (2011) on DVD, it sort of revived my "inner Muppet", and I started re-discovering the Muppets through their classic films on DVD (and a few of the recent ones as well), in addition to searching for Muppet video clips on Youtube.....

    Name: Macy. I think this is the first time I've ever revealed my real name on this forum.
    Nickname: Mace, May-May, EMBEE, MB, Myron, Jellyfish (just to name a few...)
    Age: I'm 17.
    What brought me here? I heard about the most recent Muppet movie during the summer of 2011. I got super excited and started wondering if there was an online Muppet fan community of some sort. So I did a Google search and found this place. I looke around a bit and decided that I wasn't interested in joining. I came back a months later when I was looking for Muppet fanfiction. I lurked around for about a month and then finally decided to make an account.
    Favorite Muppet: Gonzo, because he taught me to be proud of my weirdness. My next four favorites are Kermit, Robin, Rowlf and Beaker (though Robin and Rowlf switch spots quite often).
    First thing I saw on this forum: I'm not sure, but the first thing I remember seeing is fanfiction.
    Favorite Muppet Song: I'm Going to Go Back There Someday <3
    Favorite Muppet Movie: The Muppets Take Manhattan

    I watched Sesame Street from when I was a toddler to when I was 10 or 11, so I had a love of Muppets planted firmly in me pretty early on. Hoots the Owl made me want to play the saxophone (I've been playing it for about 6 or 8 years now), and Rosita is at least partially to blame for my lifelong interest in the Spanish language. I also watched Bear in the Big Blue House and Fraggle Rock whenever I got the chance (which wasn't very often). When I was about 11 years old, I started losing interest in Sesame Street while at the same time gaining interest in The Muppet Show. My dad started showing me and siblings Muppet videos on YouTube and a couple of the Muppet movies. For the next few years, I would occasionally spend hours watching Muppet stuff on YouTube. But when I saw The Muppets in the theater early this year, it clicked something on inside me. And to make a long story short, I quickly became obssesed.

    A little late on this, since I joined three months ago...
    Name: cjd874 (real name Doug)
    Age: currently in college
    What brought me here: I've browsed this forum as a guest for years (since middle & high school) and then I decided to join and chat with other like-minded Muppet fans.
    Favorite Muppets: Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem :D:sing::halo::flirt::cool:, Statler and Waldorf :boo::sleep:, and the Swedish Chef :hungry:. I am a fan of rock music, I love a good cynical joke every now and then, and I especially love to watch cooking shows, so those choices of Muppets make sense. Although I wouldn't eat anything the Chef makes. (Chef enters and hits me with a frying pan...Ouch!!!)
    Favorite Songs: "Rainbow Connection" is simply the Muppets' anthem. I also like "Can You Picture That?" and "Happiness Hotel"...all movie songs! Plus "Train to Morrow" by the Country Trio from the Muppet Show.
    Favorite Episode: Probably the Elton John appearance on the Muppet Show. Elton is one of my favorite singers of all time. :)

    Glad to be here, and these first months have been great! You've all made me feel so welcomed and I can just be myself on this forum.

    Name: Colette (muppetfan24/7)
    Nickname: I forgot what I had as my nickname.
    Age: 21 (20 when I joined in MC on April 5th last year)
    What brought me here? Well, I have been a Muppet fan ever since I was well young. The first time I ever got into Muppets was when I used to a tape called, "Jim Henson - A Celebration of Sesame Street." The first songs I remembered were "Being Green" and "I Don't Want To Live On The Moon." My favorite characters were Kermit, Harry Monster (I was a little bit scared of him), The Count (he made me giggle), and Elmo. Yeah, I know they are Elmo-haters, but I really grew up watching that cute red monster. After I joined in, I started getting obsessed (Sheesh!).

    Then there was Fraggle Rock. Ah yes, the show I truly and dearly loved. My favorite FR character has and will always be Wembley. Way back when I saw the show, I even liked Boober and Mokey, but Wembley is still my number one FR character of all time.

    Favorite Muppets: Kermit, Miss Piggy, Rowlf, and Robin
    Favorite Song(s): "Rainbow Connection" performed by Kermit the Frog and "Happiness Hotel (very catchy song)
    Favorite Episode: Well... I would say either the Elton John and John Denver episodes so far.

    The fanfics I have right now on the Fan Fiction and Art thread... I am still working on those, but school and family are getting in the way.
