    It was when I was able to view that special. It's been a while since I've seen it.

    I'm not too sure if the story goes that he had gotten rather inebriated the night before. As I said, it's been a while since I last watched it. I just know there was some reason Duncan felt he couldn't do it and Jim wasn't too happy about it.

    UPDATE:

    Actually, now I think about it further, I believe Duncan was just feeling too anxious to do the pitch, so Jim did it himself instead. I don't know where I got the hangover element from :oops:. How embarrasing! Sorry about that error and sorry if, by any chance, Duncan himself or anyone who knows him read that post! :eek: As I said, I hadn't seen it in a while. I had it downloaded, as the special features (or DVDs at the time) weren't available (and still aren't! :mad:) . I'd lost the file a while ago so I couldn't check it, just to get every detail of the story right.

    What could that Mean?

    It's OK, what he said was was that there had been a celebration the night before and he "didn't quite feel up to it." ; ) Hehe. So you're fine, it's not a big deal. :)

    Yeah and I hear that someone on Youtube told me that Jim Henson was Frank's best friend.

    That's true and Jim Henson was Frank Oz's best friend.

    In Jim Henson: The Works, Jerry Nelson said that he'd only seen Jim get angry twice. He mentioned the one time that others pointed out, but it would be interesting to know what happened the other time, if Jerry Nelson still remembers (and assuming it's nothing too personal).

    Ever since I saw that quote I wondered what episode it was. It's hard to believe Jerry Nelson wouldn't be given anything significant to do in a single episode. If I had to guess, I'd say it was the Leo Sayer episode. The only times we hear his voice is in the chorus and when Crazy Harry makes a brief chuckle. Otherwise, he doesn't have any major speaking parts there.

    I hear one of the muppet bulders said that he only flip pages of a script when he gets upset.
    I think that he could get a papper cut forthat.
