    Full Episodes of Johnny Carson's Tonight Show will air on Antenna TV

    We might get to see all of the Muppet appearances from the Tonight Show. (Except for anything prior to 1972. Most of the earlier episodes were not archived.) Unfortunately this will be on a channel that I probably won't have access to...

    Sesame Street on The Queen Latifah Show, September 17

    Wednesday's episode of The Queen Latifah Show has the description "Goldie Hawn and Sesame Street". Unfortunately there aren't any other details. I guess we'll have to watch and see what happens.

    More Brian Jay Jones

    I know some of the more notable Brian Jay Jones appearances have been advertised on this forum, but if you just can't get enough (and haven't already searched it out on your own)... Brian will be a guest on "Tavis Smiley" Friday 10/18. He's constantly responding to questions and comments on...

    Warning: Fake Kermit Collar and Eyes Being Sold

    I was looking through the items for an upcoming auction and saw listings for an authentic Kermit collar and a pair of Kermit's eyes, but I knew these items were being misrepresented. I wrote to the auction company, and they said they have removed the items from the auction. However, since the...

    It looks like the Walk of Fame ceremony is back on! The Muppets will be getting their star on March 20 in front of the El Capitan Theater. Lisa Henson and Jason Segel are scheduled to speak. There's no mention of who will be representing the Muppets, but I'm sure someone will have to be there...

    Did Jim Henson stay in touch with guest stars?

    I guess I'm not really expecting anyone to have the answer to this. The reason I bring it up is because I was at an auction yesterday where they were selling a copy of "Of Muppets and Men" that had been given to Lola Falana for Christmas in 1981, and it was inscribed by Jim Henson. It also came...

    Different versions of fan club soundsheet

    Some of you may already be aware of this, but I recently noticed that there are two different versions of the Muppet Show Fan Club soundsheet. The content is the same, but they are different in that they use different lettering, the coin circle is in a different location, and there are two...

    Frank Oz interview on Tavis Smiley

    Frank Oz appeared on Tavis Smiley's show last night. I only caught the last half of it, but most of the interview questions were (surprisingly) about the Muppets. They even showed a couple of clips from the Muppet Show! I believe Frank was actually there to promote his movie "Death at a...

    Photos from London, Hollywood, DC

    Last Sunday topped off what has been a very good Henson year for me so far. I went to the last of three season finale shows at the Hollywood Bowl, which included Kermit and Miss Piggy as special guests. After the show I waited at the artist’s entrance for the Muppeteers to emerge, and was able...

    Where Are These Muppet Caper Buildings?

    I know others have already asked this same question a number of times on this forum, but it never seems to get answered. So I thought I’d try one more time: Does anyone know specifically where to find the buildings used in The Great Muppet Caper for the Happiness Hotel, Lady Holiday’s...
