    HI ho, guys.I've loved the muppets all my life, especially:eek:. I love the magic of Henson's creatures, and the thing's Jim could do. I love the Muppet's take Manhattan, closely followed by the Muppet movie! I don't like Muppet's from space much, sorry:concern:. Of course, I love the Muppet Show, but who doesn't? I have always dreamed to work with the Muppet's, so I hope I can write many fan fiction's.

    Hi, Jim and Frank! Welcome to the forum. And don't worry there, not many people care for MFS 'round these parts, so you're not alone (I'm one of them, in fact). And that will be great if you're going to be writing some fan-fics. We always love new MC fanficers come in. :) (love the username, btw)

    Thanks Hubert, the words match perfectly. Please look at my first fan fiction, Kermit's diary. I've only just started it off, but I need comments so I can continue. Please check it out, thank you.

    That's alright Floyd, but out of all the Muppet movie's it's probably the most unMuppety.

    What a wonderful surprise to find a place to talk about Muppets! I look forward to reading everything. I did a search for Muppet Show Blu Ray and the first result was the post from here. I in high school when The Muppet Show aired and it's strange but every teenager in our neighborhood would come over to watch it with me. So I've been too old for them since the day they aired.

    Hi, Muppetbabylover! Welcome to Muppet Central Forum.
    I hope you enjoy your stay. My mother used to watch The Muppet Show in Wales. I always loved The Muppet Show ever since I first watched it on television. The Muppets have been one of the fads of the 1970's.

    Hi to all! I'm new to this forum. In fact, just joined today. I been a big fan of the Muppets since Sesame Street started it's run way back when in, I think it was 1969. I was six and found them wonderful and continue to feel the same way about them. I love the Muppet show and the movies and countless specials. They're the reason I wanted to be a puppeteer. So there you have it.

    Hi, Artberto, welcome to the forum! Sesame did start in 1969, and it's nice to hear that you've been a fan for so long! And it's also great that you want to be/are a puppeteer. You might find the puppetry section of the forum great for advice, tips, and even sharing your work

    Thank you. Though I have loved puppetry the better part of my life I didn't become a puppeteer until I was in my late thirties. I started with marionettes at a puppet theater in Dallas learning how to operate them, then, out of need, teaching myself how to fix them. Eventually I started to make them too. Still, my knowledge is quite limited to the work I done. I've never been to a workshop or to a convention. I'd love to do both someday but in the meantime I learn from books and videos along with a lot of trail and error. I glad to be a part of this group with like minded folk. I look forward to chatting, learning and sharing whatever I can from the little I know.

    I work as freelance artist. which covers a lot of ground for me. I've worked as an actor, as a circus clown and of course, a puppeteer. Presently, I do educational presentations as a comical character who teaches about water conservation and preservation to elementary school- age children. Some of it does involve puppetry but only in a minor way. Last year I did some puppetry at Seaworld using marionettes in cabaret style. The marionettes were Halloween themed. I'm also an illustrator. And a parent which keeps me pretty busy too.

    Cheers is a great show. I know it well. All the characters would look great as Muppets.

    It's nice to see you, Artberto. I'm so surprised that you are a fan of Sesame Street since it started in 1969. Anyway, welcome to Muppet Central Forum. I hope you enjoy your stay. I hope you enjoy puppetry! :)

    Wow! That's awesome. I'm sure the audience loved it. Great job!

    Hey All, I'm new to the forum! I've checked this forum for awhile now concerning any news and rumors. I've always been a Henson fan with The Muppet Show and Dark Crystal being my favorites. I recently went through my large collection of figures (Muppets, Star Wars, etc.) and I'm hoping to do some trading with other fans. Cheers!
