    I am so jealous! I had no idea there were so many Brit Muppet fans around here. I am not alone :)

    Kermit of Blue Peter, joy!

    Ant, Yes we were just beside you when you were talking to Steve. The person with you was complimenting Steve on performing Statler, I think? He said he loved the two old guys.

    Mr Humbug, Where in London are you? Do you collect also?

    Thanks so much for sharing, guys. It's neat to think that our favorite muppeteers are so available and friendly, but it's also nice when they get to interact with such personable and sensible fans. (I am SO green with envy that you had your picture taken with Kermit.) *Sigh*

    Hi Ant (muppetloving),

    Nice to see another fan went to meet Kermit. Shame we didnt get chance to speak. Are you a collector as well as a fan?


    Maybe next time.

    Well in 1989, Hensons made a TV series with Tyne Television called 'The Ghost Of Faffner Hall. - Several fairly notable Muppeteers performed on the programme. (well 3 of them had been TMS puppeteers - and two of those members of The Eight).

    Also, here's a teaser for you. From the 10 to 15 February 1997, the muppeteer who performed the title role in GoFH, was appearing on the stage of Theatre Royal Newcastle in a Chekov play.

    I was there....sort of

    That's really freaky..... I don't get on this forum very often, but was just reading these threads about the UK.

    I was on holiday in Newcastle in 1989 with my parents, and we stayed in a very posh hotel (I'll ask my dad the name, if you need to know!) and one morning at breakfast..... Jim Henson was there at a table just a few metres away. We could never work out why he would be in Newcastle.... but I guess that programme is why.

    I was only 15 at the time (I'm now 32) and so was too shy and scared to say anthing to him.................. which of course I completely regret now

    Wow, I am also sooo jealous; it seems all the cool things happen in London, LOL! I'm glad all the stories about how personable the muppeteers are are true!
    Melissa, how exactly do you know Steve, if you don't mind me asking?

    Hey Kermie! Hope all is good, the link above is miss piggy in the shop window in selfridges. She was premoting the Muppets Wizard of Oz movie. I also copied the images to my site. Not sure if she is still in the window tho.

    peace,

    Anthony.
