    Kermit and Miss Piggy Officially Split!

    All I can say is that if 'He's Just Not That Into You' had been published during the 'Muppet Show' days...

    Happy 30th anniversary, Follow That Bird

    I started school in 1984, and before too long I was whisked along in a tidal wave of what I would later discover is called peer group pressure. Those fellow scholars who wanted to prove themselves as 'cool', 'tough' or 'mature' passionately proclaimed that Sesame Street was a "babies' show". My...

    Sonia Manzano will not be on Sesame Street after Season 45

    The saddest thing about it is that it's nowhere near as sad as it should be. Since the 1990s, the human cast has been increasingly sidelined in favour of gimmicky formats and Muppet material, and young viewers barely have the chance to get to know the humans. Granted, Maria has had more airtime...

    Second batch. Please excuse the crappy iPod camera... Grover's arm rod is snapped in half, but tape and super glue can easily fix it

    CherryPizza's clearance sale

    Hey all For those who missed my last post, my life has come out of a storage unit after three years, and it's now time to play the music, light the lights... and clear out the clutter. Just about all of my Muppet collection is getting discarded. Since there was some interest when I was...

    Anyone having any luck with selling?

    Hi, all. Am about to post a new thread of items that have been unpacked.

    Anyone having any luck with selling?

    Thanks for the responses, but there won't/can't be a grand reveal of everything that I have. It'll be a lengthy, gradual process as I open one storage box at a time and deal with its contents before moving on to the next one. This is why I need to re-ask my original question, which is whether...

    Anyone having any luck with selling?

    Long story short: In a week, belongings which have been filling a storage unit for the last few years are going to be taken to my current home. There will be a lot of items I'll be clearing out, including the vast majority of my Muppet collection (which is sad, but since I haven't even seen...

    Your thoughts on fan-made/unofficial merchandise

    So, I know that everyone draws the line in different places when it comes to determining the difference between 'crafty tribute' and 'copyright violation'. I was just at my local service station (gas station/tank station/whatever you call it in your neck of the woods) where beanies resembling...

    Sesame Street Learning Kit

    I've managed to acquire a copy of the 1970 Sesame Street Learning Kit containing everything except the record. In the interests of making the kit complete, I'm hunting down a copy of the record. I know it's not exactly rare, but the first album was released in numerous forms in 1970. Does anyone...

    Old Bert and Ernie sketch I can never seem to locate

    Ernie answers the phone. He says, "You went on a picnic today..." He keeps repeating the caller's story back to the caller (even as a young'un this made no sense to me) Bert keeps emotionally reacting to what he hears Ernie saying I forget how it ends, but instinct says it would probably...

    Remembering Jane Henson (1934-2013)

    Once again, we see a thinning of the ranks in Muppet founders. :cry: Let's take this moment to give a big hand to the hand behind... the hand behind the Muppets.

    Garrett Saunders

    Having a bit of a skim through Street Gang, Michael Davis' description of Saunders' performance as Gordon struck me as... 'interesting'. While it's no secret that the character was not properly developed at that stage, and that Saunders didn't click in the role, I'm not entirely sure if I would...
