    Did you know that a few years ago people were using an address for Frank OZ and were getting phone calls from Henson and Oz's secretary about the address.The problem with the address that they were using was that Frank stopped using it 3 years earlier.

    Just figured I'd pass this bit of info on

    I have an autographed photo, autoed by the Swedish Chef. It looks like the autograph was printed with the picture, but I don't care. It is good having one to show your friends!!!

    If one is writing to Caroll Spinney, should one also send one's letter to Sesame Workshop?

    Yes, JHC already corrected me on that. All SS productions contact should be sent to SW. I've provided the address above.

    Where can you get the adress to write to? I once wrote to Jk rowling and it was a fake person even though I supposedly got a autographed photo back.

    On your Autographed pics was it made out to you? Mine was it says "Hi to Varun! from Kermit the Frog and the rest of the Muppets"

    Caroll Spinney!

    Last week I received my autographed copy of Caroll's new book!

    Why am I so happy? His book tour came nowhere near Cincinnati, and I was bummed. However Jeni (the web master of Caroll's official fan page) told me that I could buy a copy to help support the Children's Discovery Musuem in San Jose, CA.

    So, I donated my first copy of the book to the Cincinnati Public Library, helped support a children's museum, and now have a personal autograph from my Muppeteer hero that reads:

    Terry! I Love Trash! Oscar and Caroll Spinney

    It's a three way win if you ask me!:grouchy:

    Received yet another success today in the mail.

    The mailman brought me back my SASE and inside was a photo of Floyd autographed from him and Jerry Nelson. Also enclosed were the index cards I sent which were signed by Crazy Harry,Robin,The Count,Floyd and Pops. Each is its own signature with its own style.

    Thank you Mr. Nelson for the autographs. You are the grooviest dude :sing:

    I sent copies of photos of myself with some Muppet folks to JHC recently that I hope will get signed and returned to me. I want to create a special display of all my pictures.

    Here is some information that some may find useful if they sent requests out and have not heard anything yet.

    From my successes, I can tell you how long each took from the time I wrote them and mailed my requests to the time I received them back. This is the time frame it took for my autogrpahs to arrive and may not be the time frame for when someone else receives theirs, but I figured I just give folks an idea on the time frame.

    All requests were sent from New York City to either the Sesame Workshop address or The Henson PO Box in NYC.

    My Successes:

    Jerry Nelson - 15 days.
    Frank Oz - 7 days
    Dave Goelz - approx. 7 months
    Kermit the Frog - 4 days
    Elmo & Grover - 7 days
    Big Bird & Elmo - 3 days

    I have requests out to:

    Steve Whitmire (via email to Henson as well as postal mail)
    Caroll Spinney (used address from Caroll Spinney Fan page)
    David Rudman (Sesame Workshop address)
    Kevin Clash (Kaufman Astoria Studios & Sesame Workshop)
    Sonia Manzano (Sesame Workshop)
    Brian Henson (Henson Corporate Offices)
    Miss Piggy (Henson Hollywood Address)
    Beaker (Henson Hollywood Address)
    Sweedish Chef (Henson Hollywood Address)

    If anyone has had success with any of the above or have a better/working address, please let me know. Also thanks to all who have posted their success stories here as it good to hear them and helps those who are new to this thread.

    Take Care

    It's been a few weeks, but I sent a photo of myself with Charlie Rivkin to him to get signed, and it was returned with a very friendly letter from his Personal Asst. I had sent him a copy of the photo for himself to keep.

    But, like an idiot, I didn't put ANY of my own contact info on the back of the photo. So, keep in mind, boys and girls, to always put your contact info on the stuff you send them hoping theyll keep.

    Today the mail mail was generous and brought me another Henson success...This time it was from Mr. Brian Henson himself. I got an 8x10 B&W inscribed photo as well as 2 5x7 photos of Sal the Monkey and Bobo the Bear. I also got a letter with information on how to apply for a Henson Internship.

    Thanks Brian for the photos and letter.

    Turnaround time was about 24 days.

    Hi Michael, you lucky guy! I wish I had some autographs or even some pictures from the henson company would be good.

    Maybe I should try some, I dont know if they would send a reply to Australia though, its worth a try though.

    Where can I obtain the addresses to do this?

    Is it unable to be done through email?

    thanks, from Paul :)
