Hello. I was just watching the Sesame Street 20th anniversary special (20 And Still Counting) the other night -- I hadn't really sat down and watched the whole thing since it originally aired. Anyway, they included a few of those "Muppet and kid moments" and in a couple cases (Herry and John-John, and a scene with Kermit and two young girls) they actually had these kids come on as adults (or however old they were in 1989) and John-John even counted with Herry again as an adult "for old times sake." They showed the clip of Kermit and Joey singing the alphabet -- I'm sure you know the one, "Q - R- Cookie Monster" with the letters of the alphabet superimposed on the screen, and they even made a graphic of Cookie Monster to be used in that scene. It's a great clip! Anyway, it got me curious because unlike the others, Joey did not make a current (1989) appearance in the special. I'm just curious about what happened to her, if she is still living, etc. I looked on line and at least was able to identify her as Joey Calvan. But I suppose if she wanted to be "found" she would have appeared on one of these retrospectives or done some kind of interviews somewhere along the way, right?
