    You're welcome. Hope it makes sense. So like if you were to write to Kevin Clash, you'd write:

    Kevin Clash
    C/O Sesame Workshop
    1 Lincoln Plaza
    New York, NY.....

    WAHOOO!!!

    had to post this here. Im so excited. Today in the mail I FINALLY got two pictures i had sent to Frank Oz well over a year ago and asked him to sign. he sent a form letter along with them basically saying "Sorry this took so long" and then also wrote a personal "sorry this took so long" at the bottom. I'm so excited. I now have a nearly complete collection of Henson autogrpahs including
    Jim Henson (signed MTM poster
    frank Oz (signed pics of him with Fozzie and Grover)
    Jerry Juhl (signed pic of Pigs in Space)
    Jerry Nelson (signed pic of him and Floyd)
    Dave Goelz (signed pics of him with Zoot and Beau)
    Steve Whitmire (signed pic of him with Lips)
    Kevin CLash (signed pic of him with Clifford
    Fran Brill (signed pic of her with Zoe)
    and Marty Robinson, Pam Arciero, and Caroll Spinney (cast photo also signed by Snuffy, Grungetta, and Big Bird)

    and then just to make the collection complete I scanned the photo of Richard Hunt reading the Herald Tribune in his Sweetums legs and framed that to hang alongside everyone. Needless to say my wall is...full.

    Wow, that's awesome, Matt. I'm so jealous! So Frank signed a Muppets pic? Anything cool or of note in his letter? :excited:

    thanks Vic. Nothing all that interesting in the note. it basicaly just said "Sorry this took as long as it did. It got kind of lost in the shuffle. Hope these are still meaningful for you. thanks for your inciteful letter. Frank Oz"

    the cool part is he didn't just sign pics of the Muppets. It was actually two pics I had sent him that were him operating Grover and him operating Fozzie. And I know I've readi ninterviews he doesn't like to have stuff like that around cause he's had problems on movie sets with that. I wasn't sure how far his 'dislike' of those pictures extended. So I was very pleased he singed them.

    The weird part was I just bought a new house, and was hanging my collection earlier today (before mail arrived) and had kind of made pice with the fact that I sent these two photos out last year (like Feb. 2005) and hadn't seen them back. I just kind of figured I'd never seethem again. So you can imagine my surprise when they appeared in the mail. Talk about Weird karma.

    That is... soo-totally groovy, Matt! :excited: Uttterly f-a-b! I'm soo jealous! ;)

    Yeah; that's what I was curious about. I'd heard rumors of people who rudely tease him or such on his movie sets, and I don't like to entertain rumors, but when I hear that one of my heroes is bein' hassled, it gets me bummed.

    Hey Kiki; is your current sig supposed to be from the Weird Al movie "UHF"? That's pretty cool.

    I would put on the lower left hand corner of the envelope: ATTN: Muppeteer Steve Whitmire (for example.)

    One time I read an article on seeking autographs.
    It said if you want an autograph you should send a SASE.
    Or in your letter you could enclose a postcard for them to sign and send back to you.

    The biggest no-no in the article was don't expect a response if the performer is currently hot stuff or in big demand.

    In the past, if I saw an actor I liked was in a Broadway show, I would write to him/her care of the theatre a few months after the play opened, (when they are no longer 'hot'.)

    The TV and movie unions (AFTRA and SAG) use to forward fan mail to performers. I don't know if they do that anymore.

    I know it's probably something really simple that I could find it I were too look around but I want to make sure I get the right adress. If I were to want to wirtie fan mail to either Brian, Lisa or even Jane Henson. Would I simply address the letter under their name to the Jim Henson Company. If so what address must I use.

    I emailed The Henson comapny asking them but got a response simply saying I should send my fan mail to the same email address but i'd like to send a letter rather than an email. Could someone please help me out?

    Thank you:)

    AAAHHHH!!!! :excited:
    So I go to take out the trash here at our new place when I look on the floor of the foyer and see the mail man has left a large envelope which was too big to put in our mail slot. Upon closer inspection, the address on it is my old address in my handwriting. "Hmmm..." I think, "that looks vaguley familiar." And guess what? IT WAS THE SASE I SENT TO JERRY NELSON OVER A YEAR AGO!!!! He mailed me back three, count 'em THREE pictures he signed! One of Robin, one of the EM and one of him using Fat Blue on which that one said: "To Dave, all the best to you. Jerry Nelson"
    Jerry, if you're reading this; thank you, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! :sing: I'm so happy I'm actually crying a little bit!

    Oh man, I sent it so long ago that I don't remember! And it wasn't on my SASE, so I'm not sure, I'll see if I can try digging it up somewhere in this thread.
