    Is there actually anything anyone can (legally) to do this guy about their intellectual and physical property being stolen?

    A few weeks ago he had a picture of Spamela Hamderson from Muppets Tonight on his Facebook page for his "show" claiming that she was a character he created for his show.

    He's deranged and delusional.

    the best we can do is keep an eye out, ask him to take stuff down and if need be contact members of his family and friends via FB...ive contacted a few of his friends and family to see what was up and truth is he does have some mental problems it seems...again that doesnt make it right but someone should have corrected his mistake and pointed him in the right direction of really making his own show...i do admire his dream but he is going at it in the wrong way

    As of last night I recognized at least 3 of JB's Puppets on his wall, but no captions, he may just like the pictures and saved them....

    Is it about his puppets saving a theater from an evil oil baron by any chance?

    Wow, what a coincidence, it just so happens, I was the one who actually designed and built Walter for the movie, which I wrote too!

    :sleep: :boo:

    This guy seems like he's getting around a little bit, I hope this doesn';t cause even more harm than it already has, what with us having very similar names and all. :eek:

    I just found a message from this guy on facebook... (sadly from a couple of months ago. Apearantly I don't notice my messages). This guy makes some strange claims.

    if i where you this is a legit concern......like i said first time i ever glanced his name quickly i thought it was you...good thing i did my research and double checked

    I admit, I have been thinking about jumping ahead with damage control before any damage may occur; like you say, at quick glance, the two of us could easily be mixed up, and I'd hate that if this guy keeps getting around the way he is, that eventually, people will probably pass on me, or think I'm ripping people off with my puppetry because they may mistake me for him. Like how I used to keep getting Amy Sedaris and Amy Poehler mixed up all the time (two blonde comedic actresses), likewise so many people out there get Kathy Greenwood and Kathy Griffin mixed up (again, comediennes named Kathy with similar last names).

    Ahh OK, you're the person who originally posted the video clip with 2 puppets singing Especially For You which board member Alvin called "hilariously stupid and very cheesy" in page 2 of this thread. Sorry to call you out, bro.

    Yeah, this Joseph fellow is still claiming this as his own on his FB page.
