    Jerry will continue to perform the Count on Sesame Street, but there were auditions this week for his other characters (with Jerry's blessing). No word yet on who will be doing what.

    Glad to help!

    Also glad also you got the "Princess Melora" reference. *The Frog Prince* is one of my favorite Muppet productions, especially Jerry's Robin.

    Do you mean his Sesame characters or his Muppet Show characters? If so, which ones :)

    Will you notify us of the changes once they take place, please?

    If anybody has ever written Jerry and got a response, you'll kow he's absolutely one of the kindest, most cool people ever!! The kind of guy you just want to hang out with and talk for hours on end. Awesome guy, perfect performer!

    Gotta love me some Jerry Nelson!!

    Jerry was always one of my favorite muppeteers... though I never had a least favorite...I don't really know how to feel.

    If it brings back characters like Sherlock Hemlock (I doubt it) and Herry Monster, it could be good news. I hope Jerry's doing alright, still....

    edit... they did recast his Lew Zeland character, and they've re-recast Statler sometimes when Jerry's unable to perform him...

    I heard about this on Tough Pigs. Sesame Workshop is recasting some of Jerry's characters. He'll still perform the Count, and I won't be surprised if Mumford is recast because of the Halloween DVD he'll be in soon...

    How did we hear about the auditions for Jerry Nelson's characters?

    Princess Melora (some kin to someone who works with the Muppets) posted it in the first post of this thread!

    I know she did...I was just wondering how she knew. Do we know who she is related to?

    I haven't seen the Halloween DVD yet, but Danny Horn has and says that Jerry's credited for Mumford, but only did the voice. :smirk:

    So who do you think Henson is auditioning to take over Jerry's roles?
