    Hi everyone, Is anybody still looking for Ecto Cooler and Ghostbusters marshmallows? My wife and I got some a while back and bought too much of it by mistake, thinking "this will be the best stuff ever!". It was...for a while. After drinking so many juice boxes though, simply put, we're...

    Your Schooltime Experiences

    I know this thread is about ninjas, so I don't want to get off topic too much. Maybe another thread can be started about school and our experiences. I agree with Dr Tooth about how kids feel towards school and I had pretty much the same attitude, experience and even some teachers like Bart's...

    Something I've been wondering about episode 1839..."Goodbye, Mr. Hooper"

    We all know the episode. We've all seen the scene. We all tear up when we see it to this day. We all still miss Mr. Hooper. I've been reading about what the different cast members had to say about the episode, which is, of course, the most famous episode in the series. One thing I've...

    A Question for those from or living in the UK

    Hello, I have a question about a food I heard mentioned that's very popular in the UK. If anyone familiar with this food could answer my question, I'd appreciate it. I was at a Jethro Tull concert about a year or so ago and the brand "Fray Bentos Pies" came up. According to Ian Anderson...

    Do-It Yourself Doozer Constructions

    This might go under another category like "Fan Art" but whatever... I was wondering (as many of us have probably wondered over the years) how to make Doozer constructions out of interlocking plastic pieces (like from a children's building set). There have been a few attempts (I think) to make...

    I Am a 'Walter'

    Hey everyone, Like everyone else 'round these parts and other major Muppet websites, I thought of an old thread that asked the question "What do Muppet fans call ourselves?" Y'know, some nickname. People who love to read are bookworms, Star Trek fans are "Trekkers", but what about us? Well, I...

    Boost Mobile Commercial

    By now, I bet most of you have seen this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlrP5b4FvJM What I'd like to know is...who made/performed the puppets? Were they people who worked on Avenue Q, Crank Yankers...maybe current/former Henson employees? Some of the puppeteering styles look familiar but I...

    Hey everyone! With some luck, I found out that there's a chance I may get to visit the Sesame Street set pretty soon. It's still in the Kaufman-Astoria Studios, if I remember right. I know some of you fans have been there and some of you are familiar with New York City. So I wanted to ask...

    Question for those who know sheet music...

    Howdy everyone. I would greatly appreciate the help of anyone on here who could answer a musical question for me. It would be simple to anyone who knows the basics of sheet music or plays an instrument, but I want to get it just right and triple check my research. So here's the thing...

    Say this isn't so...is Doc gone?

    I logged into Facebook just now and there is something at the "Fraggle Rock: The Movie" page I read. They posted this about 10 minutes ago: The man who played Doc (Gerard Parkes), Sprockets owner, has since passed away. Would you like that role to be reprised? If so, by who? Read for...

    Muppet Ebay items with Splurge

    Hey everyone, My girlfriend asked me to post links to her Muppet Ebay items. The reason she asked is because one is a Scary Scary Monsters toy set. One item is of Splurge. The only merchandise ever made of Splurge (that I've ever heard of) is in this set. If you like Muppet monsters, then...

    Happy Birthday, Frank Oz!

    Hey, it's Frank Oz's birthday today! Even though he probably doesn't visit the Forum, I'd still like to wish him a Happy Birthday anyway. He's one of my heroes! In honor of him, I bought a cookie for my co-worker today. We shared it, just like they do on Sesame Street. So wish him a...

    SST 40th Anniversary Library Exhibit Project, Coming in September

    Hey everyone, A thousand posts ago, I rejoined Muppet Central (after a hiatus) back in 2004. My first post announced that I was working on an incredibly complicated piece of Muppet-related artwork (Gilda Radner-related to be specific). I find it only fitting that my 1,000th post would...
