You are most welcome. And, as you have time, reading the threads here, especially in Puppetry, can be very helpful too.

Hello Gang! My name is Jennifer, but I go by ErnieGirl here at MC.

I was a Muppet fan from the time I could talk! I never liked Disney characters like so many of my little friends...for me, it was the Muppet's zany humor and intelligence. I still have a hard time remembering that they aren't real...

My all-time favorite Muppet project has to be "Christmas Eve on Sesame Street". A wonderful story, catchy and imaginative music, and the gang that I remember best from my own childhood, all in their prime.

Obviously, Ernie is my favorite - loved his gentle yet mischievious personality, especially towards poor Bert! :frown:

Jim Henson and his brilliance will always hold a special place in my heart...to this day, I brag that he and I share the same birthday *lol*

I look forward to getting to know all of you!

Hello all! name is Rina and I'm a 24 year old female living in San Jacinto, CA
I have been a Sesame Street fan ever since I was a little girl. I loved all the characters and the actors/actresses on the show. Maria is soo cool. My ultimate FAVORITE is The Count!! he's number one in my book. I loved all the shows. Sesame Street is the best learning show for kids. the show nowadays are not as good. I also love watching and reading about the paranormal and of course anything on vampyres!
LOL that tickles my fancy. :wink: I love to watch scary movies! I also love to listen to darkwave and gothic music.

Whoops - forgot to introduce myself before I started posting... >duck<

My name's Pat, or Patrick, or Hey You, or... you get the idea. Currently in the Pittsburgh area, but heavily interviewing in the hopes of getting my fiancee into a city that *likes* IT professionals. :big_grin:

Good gosh - how long? I've been obsessed since I was knee-high to a
Whatnot. Had a crush on Maria when I was little, and got very mad when the adults *just* missed Snuffy on multiple occasions.

I watched the Muppet Show religiously - if I remember correctly, it was on right before Battlestar Galactica. Always identified with Gonzo, though I'm not sure why. Second favorite was Rowlf - he's probably the reason I became a keyboard player...

I've been doing Muppet impressions for as long as I remember. Mostly to make people laugh throughout the day, of course. I try not to do it too often, 'cause nothing bugs me more than someone who brags about doing voiceover work for the Muppets (books on tape, etc.) and then doesn't sound a whit like Kermit. Every once in a blue moon, as a karaoke DJ, when the crowd is sleeping or indifferent, I'll pull out "The Rainbow Connection" just to get a reaction. It's funny how many grown adults go glassy-eyed with nostalgia when they hear it. :smile:

I actually wrote a letter to Dave Goelz, half fan letter, half "wanna work with you guys, it looks like fun!" letter. Didn't really think anything of it until I got a return envelope, with a signed picture of Gonzo :concern: and a handwritten note from Dave Goelz himself :cool: , with contact info and advice to jsut *do* it. I was seriously geeked. Then, of course, I got
my full time engineering job and haven't had time to look back since.

Glad to finally find a place populated by Mupp-o-maniacs!

Nice to meet y'all!
Peace,
Pat
