Hello, everyone! My name is Kelly and I am obviously new to the forum here. I remember watching the Muppets as I was a kid and it wasn't until this year, sometime around the winter, that I gained a full obsession with them. Everything about Jim Henson and his Muppets is absolutely fantastic.
So I am definately looking forward to chatting with other fellow Muppet fanatics.
Fozzie Bear is my favorite, by the way. I love him with all my heart.
Well, I'm not as old as Statler or Waldorf, but I've been a fan of the Muppets since they first appeared on TV in the late 50's, when I WAS very young! (I remember watching Rowlf play his piano on the old daytime "Jimmy Dean Show" in the 60's!)
I'm a Kermit guy, and I write and compose musical theater.
If permitted, I'll post two Christmas songs that I wrote for Kermit through the years.
Hi everyone! My name is Sarah, you can call me that or Dave, or SarahDave, I respond to all. I'm kind of a casual Muppet fan (something I am slowly working on), and my sister used to come here all the time and it seemed like a fun place, so I decided to join the other day. I hope to make some friends and learn more about... well, life I guess. I'm not so good with words.
I've been a fan of the muppets since I was a kid watching Bear in the Big Blue House, but I only recently became this crazy little fan of puppetry since my obsession with Avenue Q started in June or July of 2009. I think it was July, though. Anyway, it's been a while.
I can't wait to see what else is on this site. Hope to meet some fellow muppet fans, too.
I was looking for some music as my son is singing next week and we thought of trying "Halfway down the stairs" when I came across you. I started reliving my chilhood, watching Kermit and Miss Piggy was my weekend delight. I loved Pigs in space. My Dad always said that Miss Piggy was based on Hot Lips Houlihan in MASH, though I'm not sure wether to believe him or not. (I do kind of hope it's true though).
Now that I've found you may we never be appart.
Love to you all, and take care. xx
It's so great to see all the longstanding fans of Miss Piggy and the Muppets. They, and I (ha), have been around for some time.....People speculate as to where her character comes from....I say that she pulls from many faces in the media-Mae West, Veronica Lake, Hotlips Houlihan (MASH), Marilyn Monroe(of course)....and I wouldn't be a bit surprised if we see some Lady Gaga showing through at some point......
I just stumbled upon this forum and I'm excited about it! Your posts are so entertaining!
I'm 29 years old and a fan of vintage sesame street, muppets and fraggle rock. I didn't even know there were so many Jim Henson movies! I am so behind and I have a LOT of catching up to do. There's so much I have not discovered in the Muppet World. Can't wait to start! I feel like I'm in Muppet School!
