Discussion in 'Henson People' started by Gerard, Jul 8, 2003.
Your'e right, If I had an interview with him, I wouldn't ask him what his favourite food was.
I sent a letter to Frank Oz, I haven't got a reply yet, but in it I asked for his favourite food. Maybe I'll get an answer from that...
Write to firstname.lastname@example.org
They ALWAYS answer. Tell them what you are doing, and then ask them if they know. They may not know, but at least then you will have confirmation taht you don't know and you can ask for permision to *looks around* skip the part.
Did you send Frank a letter or an email? How did you get the address?
It's in MC's FAQs section...
Yeh, I found it in the FAQ section. I sent it by snail mail. No reply today either, ... It'll arrive tomorrow. (optimistic .)
Oh well... not today. Tomorrow. Does anybody know how long it takes for mail to get from the US to Australia?
He may not reply for months. SOmetimes their fanmail builds up at the offices I think before being sent on, then he needs to find time to reply to everyone, so don't ckeck the box everyday!!!
I think that the best bet is email@example.com they may beable to contact Frank faster if they don't know, or I am sure taht one of Jim's kids will be in the office soon.
I didnt realise you sent a letter via snail mail, That could take months, I would think you would be quite lucky if you got a reply from Frank Oz this year, he is pretty busy with films these days I have heard.
How long ago did you send the letter.
Sorry to be so negative when you were hoping to get it anyday. It takes a while for letters and parcels to get the US and then theyve gotta get back.
The good news: I got the letter today .
The bad news: It said,
Thankyou for your letter I receive so many interesting ones etc...
So if any one knows his favourite food, please tell me.
It actually only took 3 weeks!
Thats great news, you must be a pretty lucky person for them to reply that quickly. Did you get any autographed photos or anything like that?
I should definately write to the henson company, I would love an autograph or anything, even a letter back from them and I know many people have got them.
Did you send some stamps with the envelope? so they could send one back?
Come on, it won't cost anything.
I did send an e-mail yesterday, and got a reply ! Jim Henson's favourite food was asparagus blankets ! Take a slice of white bread and lightly toast it. Butter one side. Wrap buttered side around one cooked asparagus. Then, some melt butter in a frying pan. When butter is melted, place toast wrapped asparagus in frying pan and lightly saute it (or them - you can do more then one at a time), turn a bit as you saute until you are satisfied with the color. Serve. Voila! Asparagus Blankets.
Thankyou so much Henson Company!
P.S: I got Frank's signature on the letter, and didn't enclose a self addressed envelope or anything, Paul.
Wow, cool huh?
Muppet Central should put that on the FAQ!!!
That is great, I will definately send some emails and letters to the Henson company now.
That asparagus blanket recipe sounds great, lol. its making me hungry!
Mmm...Asparagoose. That looks like a wonderful recipe!
I'm just surfing around the board finding all this neat topics.
Actually I never thought what Henson's favorite food was, so that's cool.
I still want to write, I'd like to get a photo of some of my fave Muppets, that would be awesome. I never thought to write to them before, always thought that they were too busy.
Well, this explains the singing food.
Have FUN (and think like Jim) instead of worrying about the exact favorite food...
The mere fact that you intend to dress as Jim and answer questions at school speaks volumes about his contributions to the world.
His exact favorite food though interesting, isn't necessarily the point of the project. I think your teacher is trying to get you to think in terms like the person you admire.
Jim was a master at having fun and bringing (that) best part out of those he worked with. It's probably safe to say he wouldn't be offended if you got the exact food wrong (if your intentions) are good and you try to think like him by having fun with this!
Perhaps something as simple as cookies, or complicated as dressing up and preparing something as the Swedish Chef!
Think like Jim... and have fun. Others will too.
Good Luck! And please let me know what you end up doing!
It might also explain Gonzo's "asparagus eggs" in the Paul Simon episode of TMS!
It's so cool that we have this forum to learn all these interesting little tid-bits of Muppeteer info! The books about Jim Henson and his work are usually pretty in depth (except the ones for younger readers) and have lots of cool stories, ideas, sketches and sometimes rare photos.
But as a Muppet fan, I can never get enough of the "little known facts"! I'm sure that there are dozens of stories and facts that the Henson family and the Muppeteers could share in future publications. And we, the Muppet fans, would just eat it all up. I'm so glad that books like "The Works", "The Wisdom of Big Bird" and "Designs and Doodles" are available.
We ALL know "Jim Henson created Kermit the Frog"-type facts, (which is all fine and good) but when we read something we didn't know about Jim before, (like his favorite food) it's a real treat! It gives me a mental picture of Jim munching on one of these breaded asparagus things while doodling a picture of a new Muppet idea in the New York Workshop.
To me, reading about Henson-related trivia like this is always a treat! I always love learning something new about Jim Henson!
I've heard his favorite dessert was blueberry pie.
At Muppetvision every year on the anniversary of his death they put blueberry pie out, and it ALWAYS dissapears. Some people think it could be the ghost of Jim eating it(but that could be the 3rd shift workers too....).
