    That's my hometown, and I go every year. So you know I'll be there with my puppets!

    I do have one suggestion though,. It would be nice to take Janken with you. I bet he will see lots of silly creatures, but only two Fraggles. Hmm... I'm sure you'll have a blast!

    Janken is my personal walkaround character, so I will definitely be taking him. He had so much fun last year, he'd never forgive me if I left him behind this time.

    However, he'll look a bit different, as I'm going to rebuild him before the con.

    It just wouldn't be DragonCon without an appearance by Slackbot. The neat thing would be Janken and Mokey together... But cooler still would be if Skeeter finally did meet Red as well. Looking forward to your stories from the con Kim.

    Slackbot, please post pictures on here if you can, I'd like to see how Red and Mokey react when they meet Janken. I'd like to hear all about it.

    If pictures are taken, rest assured that I will post the living daylights out of them.

    It's great that the Fraggles are still making live appearances after all these years. I'm especially excited about Mokey coming back. I can't remember the last time she's made a live appearance like this, let alone with Kathy Mullen puppeteering her. :dreamy:

    I wish I could go, but I live nowhere near Atlanta. Oh well, I'll just wait for somebody to upload a video on YouTube.

    I love how Fraggles are still making appearances for their anniversary. I can't wait for videos, too, especially if it's whole.

    Say, does anyone know when exactly they'll be at? :search: Events differ on the days, and I have friends planning to go there on Saturday (31st), the 'event peak' of this convention.

    When the schedule is up, it ought to be available on the Dragon*Con website. If memory serves, you go to "what to do", go to the Fan Tracks section, and click on the Puppetry Track entry in the left side bar to go to that track's page.

    I was debating whether or not to go to Dragoncon this year, but the Fraggles got me! They've officially launched the Dragoncon app now, and the Fraggle events are already on the schedule for Saturday afternoon. Can't wait! :excited:

    Saturday Afternoon, Andy?!? COUNT ME IN! :fanatic: I've seen Leslie Carrara-Rudolph, Steve Whitmire, AND Heather Henson! I'll do anything just to catch a glimpse of Frith, Karen, and Kathy! And now the door of opportunity is calling me! :excited::dreamy:

    By the way, this will also celebrate me getting 100 likes from you kind folks, Thank You! :)

    Anyone who goes to Dragon*Con, be on the lookout for a thin, bespectacled blonde woman carrying a Fraggle (or Skeeter) around. That'll be me. [​IMG]

    DragonCon has officially started but, like I said before, I intend to see the FR celebration next afternoon. If anyone else coming wants to find me:

    If that doesn't help, I'm also thinking about bringing my giraffe puppets.:smirk:

    I MET FRAGGLES TODAY! Woooo! Phone is dead or I would post a picture. The panel with Karen Prell, Kathryn Mullen, and Michael K. Frith was terrific. Good behind the scenes video, a great story about radio controlled Fraggle extras going nuts when there would be emergency radio signals from the firehouse next door, and good q and a that involved the silly creatures and their Fraggles. I was a little worried that I wouldn't make it into the meet and greet, because the line for that was forming while we were in the first panel, but I made it. I think my inner child just about passed out when I got my picture with Red and Mokey. Mr. Frith had made an exclusive illustration for the 30th anniversary to be distributed at the con, and they all had signed it. It was a remarkable day. Ms. Prell and Ms. Mullen said that they probably hadn't performed these two characters together since Jim Henson's memorial service. Wow.

    I saw you and Janken, Slackbot, but I didn't get a chance to say hello. So, hello from the guy with the mismatched shoes who sat next to you in line for the Muppet panel at LAST year's con.

    You are telling the truth, AndyWan! I finally had a great day! :excited::excited::excited: The lines were long, but the wait was worth it! Slackbot, I got to meet up with you in line to the panels! I told I was in a costume of Dipper Pines.

    So overwhelming...good thing me and my peeps left before our brains could explode! I need to journal this down before explaining it to you guys...:busy:
