    Aw, what a lovely interview! It's nice to hear his natural voice, even though he sounds so much like some of his characters!

    Jerry's OK, then? (Whew!) I heard he wasn't feeling well there for a while and I am so relieved to hear he sounded good in the interview. (If you're still visiting MC from time to time, you're in my prayers, Jerry!)

    I haven't had time to listen to the interview yet, I can't now 'cause I'm at work. (Checkin' MC during my break);)

    I read at Tough Pigs where someone saw him voice, but not perform Fat Blue (Mr. Johnson) for a recent sketch and everyone applauded him! Wish I could've been there to applaud him too...(sigh)

    Maybe the Fraggle Rock movie will be his last hurrah as far as performing characters. I could see him doing the voice for Count et al. while someone else performs the puppets for a while.

    I agree with Jamie. Jerry really is at the heart of Fraggle Rock. It's impossible to imagine the Rock without him.

    ZNS's Poem

    Zachary, That is a beautiful tribute poem.
    I love the way you wove his characters into the fabric of the piece.
    Very nice and thank you for sharing that with us.

    Morgan-Clueless, The best way to do great voices is to play with your voice. Get to know all the things it can do and sounds it can make. Put it through its paces everyday. Clue for Clueless, do this in private or you will drive your parents or brothers or sisters or friends abso-every-kindo-lutely way crazy. Listen to Bobby McFerrin
    <http://www.bobbymcferrin.com/> Be the very best you can be and it will be plenty good enough.

    I know this is answering a post made years ago but: I know nothing about the Fraggle film, they have not contacted me and I lived in Franklin, Indiana for half a year when I was eight but can't think of a reason to return.

    I bet I can give you even fewer reasons to come to Southern Illinois... ;)

    Mr. Nelson, please know that I'm incredibly honored to be on the same forum with you. And I'd like to thank you a million times over for sending me a signed picture of The Count a couple of years ago. I know you probably don't remember signing it for me, but my name is Ryan Dosier and it means more than you know!

    Take care, Jerry! Thanks for popping in to visit us here!

    Facebook Interview with Jerry Nelson

    I've decided to possibly do an Online Interview with Jerry. :search::smirk::batty: And I was wondering if you guys have any questions that you'd like him to answer.. If you have any suggestions please feel free to let me know. Thank you.

    Well let me be the first to post a question here.

    Jerry, in all of the years that you have worked for the Muppets, what advice would you give to somebody who would try to go into performing puppets?

    I ask this because because I am trying my work and making my own videos and experimenting with a puppet on camera and in front of a mirror. Thanx.

    Thanks for that question, that's something I've been wondering aswell. But I will ask him that sometime soon, I just wanted to wait till I have atleast 5 or 6 questions.. I hope you don't mind.

    Here's one question I'd like you to ask Jerry. "What's your favorite Muppet to perform during your time as a Muppeteer?"
