    Video: Ben Folds Five and the Fraggles sing "Do It Anyway"

    Yeah I agree about Gobo, something seemed skewiff with the character design - Wembley was fantastic. I loved this video, it was fantastic.

    Remembering Jerry Nelson (July 10, 1934-August 23, 2012)

    Needless to say I'm devastated to see such a large part of our collective childhoods pass away. I don't think there will be anyone that can do The Count justice in the future, not in the least like Jerry did. I'm really bummed about it all, I feel as if his contribution to FR and to SST really...

    Rumor: New Sesame Street Movie in the Works

    I'm going to throw it out there that Joey is one of my favourite writers, period. His sense of humor exceptionally works well with both his characters and his writing and I would be quite frankly disappointed to find out that there was anybody else as the main writer for a new SST film. I'm keen...

    How to start making puppets?

    The best advice I can give for a sewing machine is get one that is ALL METAL. They're heavy as but the plastic modern machines tend to be not much good for anything beyond basic garment construction. I'm currently on the lookout for a used industrial machine, as I find that there are issues with...

    New Sesame Street cast member with nose ring

    I stick out a bit for being a dude with both his ears pierced and currently short hair, but really it's not something people notice. I, of all people, am completely and utterly desensitized to people with body mods. Leela DOES have her nostril done and I believe it is a cultural thing, but as...

    Wings a la Abby?

    Hey guys, just a quick question about construction of fairy-style wings, much like those of Abby Cadabby. I'm presuming they'd be build around a decent wire frame, but how would the be attached to the body and what would be the best material to form the "flesh" if you will, of the wing.
