    Since today (or yesterday or when ever, depending on when you read this) is Jerry's Birthday, I'm going to rehash the Richard Hunt question.

    For Me, I'd say, Sherlock Hemlock, Mumford, Herry, Biff, and Count on Sesame Street, Crazy Harry, Lew Zeland, Sgt. Floyd Pepper, Louis Kazzager, STatler (techincally correct, he originated the role, and he continues it) on Muppet Show, and Gobo on Fraggle Rock. I can't say Scred, though since I haven't seen any SNL Muppet sketches.

    On the muppet show I love Robin and Floyd. "Breathe through the key hole, turkey dog!"
    On Sesame Street my favorites are Biff, Fat Blue, and the Two-Headed Monster.

    How could I forget Fat Blue and Robin!?!? And the two headed monster's first head.

    I forgot Little Jerry too. Everytime I do one of these lists, I always forget one.

    Jerry, I think, does the most incidential characters of all the Muppeteers. He was a witch doctor, a moose, an announcer, various vegetables, the Ghost of Christmas Present, and so on and so on.

    The Count, Floyd Pepper, Herry Monster, Mumford, Statler, Snuffy (When he originated the role) and Crazy Harry are my favorite Jerry Nelson characters.

    I love Gobo and the Trash Heap (with both of those characters, you have to wonder "How does a voice like that come from a man like that?", it's just amazing what he can do!), as well as Scred...

    Count Von Count! Ah, ah, ah! :D

    And probably like Emmy, Gobo and Marjory would follow. :)

    "Man, Jerry's just awesome."

    ^^That was often heard while listening to my friend's Muppet CD she had made by another friend this weekend. My favorites are Gobo, Floyd, and Scred. That guy is truely gifted in the throat department, I can tell you.

    My fav would have to be The Count and also the Two Headed Monster because I like the fact he and the late, great Richard Hunt performed him so well together!!!
