Just wanted to wish one of the veteran Muppeteers a very happy birthday today!

Fran began working with the Muppets in 1970 on The Great Santa Claus Switch and has performed many favorite female Muppets over the years, especially on Sesame Street.

Check out our little birthday menu for Fran on the front of Muppet Central.

Happy Birthday, Ms. Brill. In addition to being a marvelous puppeteer and actress, you've managed to provide little girls with numerous positive role-models such as Zoe and Prarie Dawn. Thank you.

She also does voices on Sheep in the big city. She also voices Shirely the medium on courage the cowardly dog.

Wow, I had no idea she's been with the company that long!
As one of the top JHC performers for the past few decades, I sure hope she's at Muppetfest 2003 with the other Sesame performers and their characters!

Henson had a workshop the summer before "Switch" for new puppeteers. That is how Fran Brill and Richard Hunt began to get involved with Henson around that time.

I'm late again!

Happy Day, Fran de Brill!!

Hey, what do you call the house where Fran lives?
Give up?
A BRILL PAD!
Get it?
Like Brill-o pad, sort of like an SOS pad but...

Okay, it stinks. But I tried.
Gags Beasley has been busy lately.
