    Needless to say, I know what stamps I'll be using on Christmas cards this year!

    Interesting to see Herry get a stamp of his own; I guess this officially solidifies his comeback.

    Nice to see stamps of Julia and Guy Smiley as well.

    I confess I'm a little surprised to see Telly get a stamp, given how he's increasingly grown into an obscure character in recent years . . . and if he can get a stamp, why not Baby Bear?

    Because it seems more and more they’re slowly phasing out Baby Bear.

    For all intents and purposes, so has Telly, which is why it seems a little odd.

    To echo Consummate, Guy is definitely the most surprising character here... I'm surprised to see Julia as well, though I don't know much about her or her popularity since I don't really follow the show anymore.

    Telly is more classic though. He has more "seniority" if you will. He's been around a long time. I was really excited to see him there. Same with Herry and Zoe. Although it looks like Zoe is making more frequent appearances again. Actually, this is a pretty perfect set of characters. They are all here that you would want and expect. One exception that i would have liked is Prairie Dawn. I really think she should have made the cut over Guy. I would have liked to have seen Baby Bear too, but it wasnt noticeable to me until it was brought up here. So excited for these stamps. I probably will not use them and maybe just put them in a frame like i did with the Muppet ones.

    Julia is a recent addition that represents a child with Autism. She's been seen in a lot of marketting stuff even though I don't think she's appeared in that many episodes. I imagine she'll be used more, but she seems to be pretty big right now for the show.

    Much like Abby in the beginning, Julia had a debut episode that was made into a big deal, then has made occasional glorified cameos here and there since . . . though, I think there was an episode from last season where she played a larger role in the story - something to do with finding shapes throughout the street.

    It seems like they're doing one episode based around her each season with some minor cameos sprinkled in other ones. I'd assume a big factor in this is that Stacey doesn't live in NY.

    Well, a number of the performers don't, but that never seemed to be a real problem with them . . . then again, certain performers like Caroll, Kevin, and I think when Steve was on the show, had studio apartments they'd stay in during the weeks/months the show is in production, before returning to their proper residences during hiatus.

    Really cool. A little disappointed that it's just generic stock photos of the characters, but I do like the Julia one.
