Celebrating Jerry Juhl

Discussion in 'Henson People' started by Fozzie Bear, Sep 28, 2005.

    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:


    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.
    :( :cry:

    I'm sad.

    That's sad

    It's too bad that Jerry Juhl died. At least he was able to work on the first season DVDs of both The Muppet Show and Fraggle Rock. I wonder if this news will be in any upcoming issues of any magazines (like TV Guide or Entertainment Weekly).

    I've always credited Jerry Juhl for having really created the characters' personalities as we know them since it was his writing that gave the performers the direction to take when acting out the roles.

    I still haven't heard from the JHC PR Dept yet, as soon as I do I'll post back here.

    I called the JHC on La Brea in LA. You can find their number on the website. They verified it there. I am waiting on a call from the PR Dept after leaving a message inquiring about a press release.

    I'm sure if we keep our eyes open to www.henson.com the press release section should have something up there before long. I'm sure they understand his importance to, not only their company, but also their fans.

    Nothing is there yet, but here's the link to keep on hand to keep checking for info.

    I'm also disheartened that nobody (CNN or otherwise) has any mention of his passing! No credit where it's due.
