I've been a HUGE fan of the Muppets practically since as long as I can remember! Although at a young age, I was either scared of or didn't understand the Muppet Show, but like most kids I loved Sesame Street (but not the monsters!). I even still have all the original Fraggle Rock dolls (Wembley sits on my bed!).
Growing up, I began to learn that the Muppets were not something to be scared of, they were something made to uplift people and instill imagination and good feelings. (I'm so eloquent...¬_¬) I look up to all the cast and crew of anything Muppets as people who took something not well-accepted and turned it into something that practically no one can hate.
I love basically all the movies, the Muppet Show, and, of course, the Jim Henson Hour (which I watched religiously on Nickelodeon.)
Hey there everybody! My friend showed me MC and this forum and wow is it cool! You all have done a great job! This looks like a great forum and I hope to learn more about the muppets from you guys!
As far as my history with the muppets, I used to watch muppet babies when I was little, and also remember watching Muppets Tonight back when it was on. Choosing a fav character is just too hard so I won't try. I like Kermit of course, and Gonzo, and Fozzy, but that really...but then theres Beaker and...see, just can't do it.
I'm a brand new member, so here's my little introduction: I've loved all things Henson for as long as I can remember. I was raised on Sesame Street and the Muppet Show, and I think mom rented Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal enough times to have bought them 3 times over. I had an Ernie doll that I insisted go everywhere with me, and to this day I still love that little orange man!
By trade I'm a traditional animator/ illustrator. I've been working with Chicago author Barb Bancroft for about 3 years now, and several months ago I did a bit of work out in L.A. on The Simpsons and King of the Hill. I'd love to do something for the Henson Co./ Muppets someday but so far I haven't made the right connections. My other main interest is pets, both exotic and domestic --cats, dogs, turtles, ducks, peacocks, sugar gliders, seahorses, geckos, octopus etc. (yes, that's right...octopus,...I'm totally serious)
Oh yeah.... I'm kind of new at this whole forum thing...so please forgive any mistakes I make posting and such!
catch you later
