    Sorry to burst some of your guy's bubbles but the guy with long hair in those pictures is actually Steve Whitmire who performs Kermit, Rizzo, Ernie, .... Eric is the one with shorted hair who is performing Bert in those pictures.

    As for muffins I don't know if Eric likes them. He is a picky eater and I know for a fact that he likes his salad "naked" (sans dressing):o

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but I'm fairly sure all of the people in this thread recognized Steve and knew the other guy was Eric. They were refering to him as having longer hair than in his other pics not as having the longest hair that being Steve.

    All these silly people with their muffins and envelopes!

    Daylight- I was just saying it in case there was any confusion, because I know of one person who thought that Steve was Eric based on that post, and I just wanted to make sure no one else made the same error. I guess that I also don't think of his hair there as being long, because it's about the same length as its been the entire time I've known him.

    Okey dokey. I understand. It could be a bit confusing. So how do you know Eric and what's he like?

    I know Eric from interning with JHC on Sesame Street, he's super nice, and definately a lot more reserved than the other puppetteers. There's really nothing bad you can say about him, he's a great person to know. :)

    So, what does an intern do there? What was the best thing you learned?

    I wouldn't share w/EVERYONE that you know Bill Barretta, muppettheatre!!! Otherwise, Emmy and Jackie will be attacking you going, "WHAT DO YOU KNOW???? :D they get a lil' crazed when it comes to their Bill.....

    Most Henson interns don't get to work on set on productions, they tend to work in other departments, I was fortunate enough to intern with the workshop and I got to frequently be on-set (of SS) helping out, I also built a couple of the props and costumes used on the show, and I even built my own small muppet that I got to keep. My favorite part though was playing with the puppets, which I wouldn't have really been able to do if not in the workshop. The SS interns tended to work both doing paperwork and such as well as being on-set occassionally (I think I had it better off. ;) ) It's a fun experience that I recomend to anyone, it's a time that I'll probably never forget, and I've made friends with some of the puppeteers so I still get a little bit of the inside info. Everyone is so wonderful too, one of my last days I started crying because I knew it was all going to end soon:cry: and Kevin Clash came up to me and gave me a hug and told me that I was going to be back, he was right I've been back to visit a couple times.

    Actually, he's one of the few I DON'T know, but I'd like to. I do know Pepe though!

    *wondering how you know pepe and not bill*

    oh well i was just listening to Santa Baby from the christmas special (thank you scarecroe) and i CANNOT get over how GREAT AND ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS eric sounds....i think i like piggy's singing voice better with him doing it........it sounds more professional almost.....i was watching MM and frank's tended to crack a lot....(which you can't blame him much i mean a guy doing a female pig) but when i heard eric i just flipped! talking he's got it abot 95% i mean for a pretty much first project i thought it was great! fozzie was about 90% accurate throughout the film...see frank had this nasal thing going with fozzie, and eric doesn't and i actually think that i might like eric more! i've never had frank as my favorite so maybe i'm being partial, but he was the PERFECT replacement! that's just my thoughts this late at night.

    Sadly that is that whole, you need to be a student to intern thing. . . Which leaves most of us out. . . .
