    Maybe Jerry Nelson would write it. Or maybe Adam Hunt or somebody else in his family.

    How about Adam Hunt? It could be called "Remembering Richard: The Performer of Scooter and Janice" and he could rustle up some memories from Sandy Duncan, and maybe a companion of Gilda Radner's, and even his colleagues, Dave Goelz, Frank Oz, and Steve Whitmire.

    Yes, his book IS really great!!! Has anybody else tried to draw the Mr. Hopper picture Caroll drew?

    Caroll actually drew those pictures himself?! Cool!!! And I agree with the other Muppeters writing a book, and someone writing one for Richard as well. That would be awesome!

    Just FYI: Jerry still exclusively performs the Count. I would agree with all of you: Caroll is a muppeteer (and Big Bird) heart and soul and enjoys what he does extremely. But I wouldn't count Frank Oz out yet. He may seem short and uncaring, but from what I've seen of him he is very vested and proud of his Muppeteering background. I've seen him train some newer puppeteers and he wanted to make sure everything was up to caliber. He also cares very much for Sesame Street and wants to ensure it keeps true to its history. These are personal first-hand observations.
