Jim Henson and Muppets on 2005 US postage stamps

August 14, 2004

The United States postal service has announced their 2005 stamp releases and Jim Henson fans will get a special stamp next year in honor of the Muppets creator.

Ten Muppet characters will share a sheet of stamps with a single stamp for their creator, Jim Henson. The Muppets honored include Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Sam the Eagle, Statler and Waldorf, Animal, Rowlf the Dog, The Swedish Chef, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and his assistant Beaker, Camilla the Chicken and Gonzo. Below the single Henson stamp is a larger photo in the sheet's selvage showing Henson in silhouette sitting on the floor, back to a wall, knees drawn up, and talking to Kermit.

We do not yet have photos of the stamps, but we will have pictures and release dates as soon as possible. Join the Muppet Central Mailing List to stay informed of current happenings.

From 1999-2001, Muppet Central held a Jim Henson Stamp Campaign to help show fan interest in a Jim Henson stamp to the Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee. Fans wrote letters of why they would like to see Jim Henson commemorated on a US postage stamp.
