    Why do you think that?

    No disrespect to Jarrod but, I feel that the Mindset is turning more into a Muppet Central wannabe. That's my opinion only.

    ...Just checked my schedule: there's too little people working in the family house. (And u know what they say, 'too little, too late'. :sigh:) I'm unable to attend CPA or JHC for Frog Day tomorrow. Therefore, will need others to post those events for the coming sunrise...

    So did anyone actually go to this Honour dinner thing? I'm surprised nothing has come up on social media about it.

    I wouldn't be surprised if someone from Toughpigs went. Maybe they'll have a recap of the event like they do with most others.

    A friend of mine who works at the Center with me posted this picture: https://www.instagram.com/p/BKyaQ8Dgsl9137eQw8vhj55EqmPLKFbybHqiRE0/. I really want this to be on YT, but for obvious reasons, that probably won't happen.

    That's awesome! If i'm not mistaken, Muppets, Sesame Street and JHC characters have been at a couple of the same events in the last few years, but legally they weren't allowed to appear at the same time or interact with each other. So it's great that they finally got to share the stage with each other once again, even though they probably didn't actually interact with each other.

    Was there SST characters in the picture, I didn't see any but, Red, Rowlf, & Gonzo I wish I could have been there. Also I wonder if Kevin Clash perform?

    Kevin was there as was Leslie Carrara. I don't know if they preformed though.

    There was a Fraggle Rock performance with Red (Karen Prell), Gobo (John Tartalgia), Mokey (Donna Kimball), and Wembley (...Kevin Clash!).

    I'm glad to see Kevin performing characters again, it would have been cool if he could perform Elmo for this event. Also I wish this was on Youtube.

    Yes, I'm sure we all do. :sigh:

    Do we know for sure that's Kevin? We can't see his face and there was another African-American puppeteer that night.

    This info was passed along by expert Muppet fan Jesse Oliver, who was at the event. Reach out to him if you have any doubts. :)

    So great to see Kevin still doing what he loves! I'm curious to how his Wembley sounds...

    I'll take your word for it. I'm rather jealous of Jesse @ploobis, cause he gets to go to all these events and he's Facebook friends with Muppet people who haven't responded to my friend requests.
