    I was in a branch of Flying Tiger (somewhere around London) today and noticed they were selling something that appeared to be Stroopwaffles - only they didn't actually call them that. - Gosh how it reminded me of you guys. Many years ago a bunch of European Muppet fans seemed to spend quite a...

    Dark Crystal's Blue Peter Appearance

    Dark Crystal's appearance on Blue Peter was 40 years ago today. I actually very vaguely remember watching this at the time. - I think I was a bit too young to really understand what it was all about. I just remember these people were doing strange things with their arms at about head height. I...

    Whose your favorite Muppeteer?

    My absolute favourite is Louise Gold. Mainly because of that wonderful big brassey singing voice of hers. The way she did 'I Get A Kick Out of U' and 'Anyone's Nose" for example on Sesame Street are just perfect.

    Muppeteers that can SING!

    My two absolute favourite Muppeteers are singers, Jerry Nelson and Louise Gold. - In fact, I became a Muppetfan originally because of my admiration for Louise Gold's singing abilities. I Get A Kick Out of U from Sesame Street: kind of sums up exactly the talent that first awed me (The...
