    Your Thoughts: "Jim Henson: The Biography" by Brian Jay Jones

    Sadly, I just learned that this event has been cancelled since Brian Jay Jones will be making an appearance on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart", which typically films in the late afternoon/early evening of the day each episode airs. I guess there wasn't a big enough response and an opportunity...

    Your Thoughts: "Jim Henson: The Biography" by Brian Jay Jones

    I'm really excited to read the bio! My sister works at this library in New York City and asked me to help put the word out for this upcoming book signing with Brian Jay Jones in a few weeks. I would love to be there, but live several states away, so if you live in or near the city, please be...

    Remembering Jane Henson (1934-2013)

    Was saddened to learn of her passing yesterday via my Twitter feed. I performed this Muppetized version of "Rainbow Connection" in her honor last night at a local bar where I participate in karaoke.

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

    Saddened to hear this news. I had trouble finding an obituary online for him earlier today, but found this article: Also, Jerry's album TRURO DAYDREAMS can be streamed on Spotify: Jerry Nelson – Truro Daydreams

    New Awesome Muppet T-Shirts!

    I have the Electric Mayhem shirt. Got it as a late birthday gift in 2009. I also get a kick out of the Muppet costumes.

    Sneak Peak: Sesame Street's Pinball Number Count remake

    Frankly, I like the one that Phillip linked to better than the one chosen. It reminded me of the original, which can be viewed here:

    Muppet Whatnot Sale: Save $30 and free shipping until April 10

    Thanks for the alert. I actually got a gift card for Christmas in 2008 from my mother and sister to be used toward this. I misplaced it, but found it recently, so when I went to redeem it, I learned I was going to have to pay about $30 extra to have it made and shipped since the initial price...

    New Video: Muppet Bohemian Rhapsody!

    It won't be long before it hits 1 million views. That's gotta be some kind of record considering it was just posted about 2 days ago.

    Kermit Sneakers

    I have a pair of these. I didn't know they existed and they were a surprise Christmas gift in 2007 from my mother and sister.

    Pictures of the new eFX Replicas: Reporter Kermit, Rizzo and Miss Piggy

    I have the MR Kermit, but haven't bought any of the other ones. The detail on Rizzo is amazing. Wouldn't it be fun to buy that half-complete bust of Miss Piggy just to place it somewhere in your house to see if people would be able to identify it?

    Channeling the Muppets

    Yeah, that was Rowlf. I am just glad you were able to identify Gonzo, as there are a few I need to work on.

    Channeling the Muppets

    A few years ago, I participated in a local open mic night called The Soapbox Sessions where I performed an a cappella version of The Lovin' Spoonful's "Summer in the City" as interpreted by The Muppets. The mostly-young crowd went bonkers and loved it. This past Wednesday evening, the Soapbox...

    The Muppets Do Local Open Mic Night

    It's been a while since I have regularly posted (I've been more of a lurker over the years), but wanted to share a great personal story, having recently watched and enjoyed Puppet Up! on my DVR. This past June, I heard about an open mic night at a local performance hall and decided I was...

    Your Thoughts: Puppet Up Special on TBS

    I finally got around to watching this over the weekend after recording it on my DVR. I agree that it was easily one of the funniest things the Jim Henson Co. has done in a while. I would love to see a possible live U.S. tour come to fruition and would gladly buy tickets to a show if they...

    Your Thoughts: Authentic Kermit Replica

    I hadn't heard about this puppet until I read Phillip's recent article. I decided to purchase one since there were only going to be 2,500 produced. Unfortunately, I didn't see the Muppet Central kick-back link until after I had already placed my order. Sorry, Phillip. :)

    Electric Mayhem on Robot Chicken

    No matter how much you love the Muppets, you couldn't help but laugh at this because many of the voices were spot-on and it did a fantastic job of parodying Behind the Music.
