EDIT: I started this thread to announce the passing of one of the most influential people on the history of The Muppets and more; but rather than focus on the passing, let's celebrate his life. It's been said he loved the silly and the zaniness of life, so promote that in all you create in awe of his work. And be happy he's with Jim and Richard again...he's left us a multitude of great works, and for that I'm appreciative. I just posted this in the thread about the stamps because this is where the news began: http://forum.muppetcentral.com/showpost.php?p=324552&postcount=26 I also called the JHC on La Brea in LA and they verified it. I'm awaiting a call from the PR Dept to verify and inquire further. Appears Jerry Juhl passed away Monday Night. I'm sad.
