    Gorch But Not Forgotten (a comic strip)

    Just for my own enjoyment, I've created a comic strip starring the old SNL Gorch Muppets. Basically it's showing what they've been up to since their days on SNL, and will have loads of cool cameos from other long forgotten or lesser known Muppets. You can check it out at the link below. Let me...

    Who builds 'em?

    This has probably been addressed before, but I feel compelled to ask, so my apologies if I'm rehashing old news. Now that The Muppets are owned by Disney, while The Henson Company is doing it's own puppet business with older un-Muppet properties, and Sesame Workshop is doing The Sesame Street...

    Muppet Musicians Of Bremen On Dvd!

    I don't know if anyone else has seen this, and it sounds legit enough, but I found this on Myspace today. If it is on the up and up, people like me who have been wanting Bremen on DVD all these years may want to jump at this. At $14.00 you can't really beat it...

    Contacting Michael Frith

    Anyone have any info as to how I could reach him? I've been a cartoonist for many years now, and watching the Fraggle Rock season 1 bonus features and seeing his gorgeous art in the original proposal for the show reminded me how greatly his art influenced my own work. Hence, I'd love to get...

    Very Informative Frank Oz Interview...

    I don't know if this has been posted yet, and if so, please disregard it with my apologies for unintentionally re-posting, but I came across this interview with Frank on, and it's an eye opener, from his view of the years he spent with the Muppets, to confirmation about a...

    Lighthouse Island from The Jim Henson Hour

    Assuming other people remember this second-half episode of the Jim Henson Hour, titled "Lighthouse Island", written by Jerry Juhl and starring Chris Makepeace, does anyone know where it was filmed? My first instinct is Canada (though where in Canada?), but doesn't have anything. Any...

    I don't understand it...

    I was sitting here at my computer, listening to my Sesame Street cd's, then for so apparent reason I became very sad and eventually cried a little. My fiancee says it's because I got nostalgic, but I tell you, I've been nostalgic before, and it was never like this. I was really caught off guard...

    Sesame Street on DVD?

    I have no doubt that this has been brought up in some other thread, and if anyone cares to direct me to it, I'd appreciate it. But for now, I need to ask, has anyone heard any news about early seasons of Sesame Street (or at least a greatest hits collections) being released on DVD? I'd love to...

    Dr. Bob and Mr. Rowlf

    Does anyone else find it strange that in Veterinarians Hospital Miss Piggy plays Nurse Piggy, Janice plays Nurse Janice, and yet Rowlf plays Dr. Bob? Almost thirty years later and I'm just now starting to wonder about this. Anyone out there have an explanation or perhaps find this as weird as I do?

    I'm a big fan of Joss Whedon's now defunct sci fi TV show FIREFLY and it's very terrific big screen spin-off, SERENITY. I've been on a few boards where I've tried to share my appreciation of the show with others, but there's a whole lotta hostility and weirdness out there. Seeing as how I feel...
