    I sent letters to all the Muppeteers at the set of "The Muppets...Again!" on April 5th. As you may or may not know, that was 10 days before they wrapped things up. I live in the U.S., and I imagine that mailing a letter from the U.S. to the U.K. would take some time. As you may imagine, I found the news rather disappointing, as I had not heard anything back at all.

    Remember when it was easy? When you could simply send a letter to the Jim Henson Company and about 80% of the time you would hear something back from them? Remember those days? I don't, because then I would have taken every chance to write to them. This is so frustrating...

    The best way would probably be through the Sesame Workshop adress. I believe that one worked for most people. I haven't gotten anything back yet though. I sent one b'out a month ago.

    Matt Vogel was very quick to send me a postcard back. I really appreciated that. :)

    Thanks, I'll have to try that. I guess we'll have to share results if we get anything back. Unfortunately, I wasn't around in the heyday of Muppet autograph collecting. No Jim Henson Company or Muppetfest for galagr...

    Sent out to Steve today at Sesame Workshop address. Every throbbing vein in my heart hopes I get something back.

    You see, I know Sesame Workshop has been pretty good with fan mail in the past. They used to pass mail on to Kevin Clash and Jerry Nelson, and they still do with Fran Brill and Leslie Carrara Rudolph. But, I've never seen anyone get anything back from Steve Whitmire, Eric Jacobson, Matt Vogel, or David Rudman. Although, I did see someone hear back from Steve....

    in 2006. :p

    I'm pretty sure I already know the answer to this question, but;

    Did anyone receive anything back yet?

    I used the Sesame Workshop address about two months ago and there has been nothing back. Of course, seeing that it was addressed to Steve, I doubt there will be anything until he goes back to do some Ernie stuff.

    Or if my worst fears are confirmed, it's sitting in the dead letter office because I didn't address it properly. It's hard to address a letter for overseas. :(

    It will take a while for the Muppeteers. It usually takes over a year to hear back from them. Don't give up hope.

    On another note, what address did you send it to, and why don't you think you addressed it properly?
  14. JimAndFrank

    I used this one:

    Sesame Street
    Sesame Workshop
    One Lincoln Plaza, Fl 2,
    New York, NY 10023

    I wrote it on the envelope exactly like that. However in Australia, the scanners like to read things in a certain way and I'm dreading the fact that it may have rejected the letter.

    I asked Steve for an autograph from the Electric Mayhem and their Muppeteers, including Lips and him!

    It's really a shame that aren't any more reliable addresses for the Muppet performers anymore.

    Back in the Henson days, you could just write and there'd be a 95% chance of getting something back. But those days are gone. It's basically impossible to write to them know. that's coming from me, and I know Bill Barrettas' home address.

    Henson use to be really cool, and I kind of made friends with some of there mail people.
    I Still say Sesame Workshop is the best place to get in touch with a Muppeter. However I myself have never tried it. What I'm going to do is I'm going to use the addresses that we have with the exception of Henson, and write both Disney and Sesame to see if I can get an autograph from one Muppet, and one Muppeter from each. That way I'll be able to see who sends what and how fast. I'll keep everyone updated on how this little test goes. First I will be constructing the letter, it will be the same letter but the names will change.
    For Sesame I'm going to send a letter to Grover, and to Eric Jacobson, and for Disney I'm going to send a letter to Kermit, and to Steve Whitmire. These are two of the more popular Muppets and performers, so it should interesting on what kind of response I get.

    Dwayne, I'm gonna tell you, you will not hear a thing back from Disney. I've seen the way they handle their fan mail and....bleh. You wouldn't believe it.

    However, it's in my nature to wish you good luck anyway. Who knows? Maybe they've changed since the last time I visited.
