    Working on another at the mo too, but will post that if and when it happens.

    There is a signed art of the muppets book on eBay NOW. Jerry nelson, kevin clash, Brian Henson Karen prell and others have signed it!

    Whoa. That is seriously an accomplishment. I'd faint if I met Steve once, but three times? Does he remember you now? Coolest thing in the world!

    Does he remember you now?

    Yes, When I met him earlier this year I told him (Kermit) how I met him 6 years ago at the London Marathon. He replied Oh Yes I remember, I was wearing my trench coat that day, it was raining then too. So Kermit Frog knows and remembers me. How exciting!! Bill Baretta as Pepe was also there that day to. I should have asked for an autograph but didnt!! ****!
    I'll see what I can do with pics!!

    Whoa! Sounds like a dream come true to me! Some famous people or semi-famous people don't remember that sort of stuff, but that's really good to know that Kermit's always gonna be there.

    And pics, that would be the best ever. Does Steve do Kermit's signature?

    I have this photo too. It's cool. I think I have it in two sizes!!

    Yes Steve signs kermits signature. I so wish I had him do other characters but in the excitement of the moment it didn't cross my mind! Rizzo, wembley, bean bunny!

    I'm gonna write and try to get as many signatures as I can because since the passing of Jerry Nelson on Thurs made me realize as much as I'd like them too the puppeteers won't be around forever and you never know what life will bring. And even if half of them don't get a response at least I can say I tried.

    Wow, never really realized the Muppeteers did all the signatures. I've seen Gonzo's signature around places, but I didn't know it was Dave Goelz who signed it! And Miss Piggy's too...though it kinda makes sense because Frank even came up with a whole backstory for her, of course he'd create a signature. Thanks so much for posting those! :)

    WOW! Quite a collection! I wish the Muppeters could come perform anywhere NEAR where I live, but that's quite doubtful. Could you pretty please show us one more picture? The one with Annie Sue? EDIT: How did you get most of your autographs? In person? Through the mail?

    Any bill Barrettas characters?

    bingboingcutie Well-Known Member

    Holy toledo, Annie Sue even has an autograph?? It's the cutest! Love Richard's Beaker and Scooter too--and his own. It's awesome how much care the Muppeteers take in making sure it looks like their characters are real.

    If you go to their website it has an address on there somewhere. They don't take fanmail anymore by Email but I think you can write a letter. Which to me is better anyways makes it more personal. Good luck though!

    I don't know as I haven't gotten anything yet. :p

    EDIT- So apparently writing to the JHC might not be the best idea. Apparently someone on here tried to write Frank Oz and got this instead.
