Mainly I joined this group in an attempt to get the inside scoop on Sid the Science Kid. My daughter who is 2 1/2 LOVES Sid and I am hoping for more episodes soon. Also, we bought the Amazon.com exclusive soundtrack a year or so ago and have been desperately waiting for Volume 2. I see that iTunes has released it but not Amazon. I noticed also that the iTunes release of Volume 1 has an extra song on it (Rug Time). Anyway, my daughter's favorite of all the songs, "Beautiful Trees" is not on either Volume! Is there going to be a Volume 3????

I'm kind of forum challenged. Now that I've introduced myself, where do I go from here? I'm currently making an Elmo and need some advice on body construction (pattern). I already have the 'skull' and nose built and have boiled some of the fur...I'm having to cut pieces and boil them piece by piece to fit in the pot , and I have a limited amount of fur and can't get more so I don't want to waste it by cutting the body wrong. He will be wearing a removable costume, so I'm looking for advice on muppet clothing as well, a coat in particular. Are there particular forums for those questions? As for pictures, that's me and the Wookie Monster in my profile pic. I've got two weeks to finish this and other projects for DragonCon, so I'm sewing like mad, but after the con is over I hope to spend a lot more time on this site. This site is great! We are planning a group of costumed muppets for next year. My son is about to get his degree in film and plans to do a short for DC*TV next year..."The Muppets Go To DragonCon". So....which way do I go?

hello! i've been lurking for a few months now, but i thought i should introduce myself. I love Jim Henson & comic books. I am currently developing my own puppet television show very much inspired by these things.

my avatar is a picture of my newest puppet, Foxi. he's the star of a music video that I shot in Berlin a couple months back. I will post the video in the news section in just a moment, but here I will post a link to my facebook artist page where you can see behind the scenes stuff, and I hope some of you will come check out my art & puppets. and 'like' the page of course :wink:

1984-5 when I was employed by Lucasfilm Computer Div. (doing games at that time), I made most of the scrolling background graphics for their "Labyrinth" game based on the David Bowie movie. Though not much of a fan of David Bowie or the movie, my lifelong interest in puppets and robotics and admiration for the good that Henson and Muppets have done brought me here as I Googled to learn what's new in the technical dimension of entertainment robotics. Decades ago the best options for affordable prototype controllers was through computer printer parallel/serial ports, and I gained experienced with those for biomedical prototypes, my primary work in the 1990's. These days the potentials are exciting thanks to kits and modules that interface via fast USB. Mostly on a hobby basis I've dabbled in doll house designs, advertising displays, puppet theater design, and exploring ideas for robotics for children.

Please direct me to your best spot for discussing anything resembling these topics.
