    Hey everyone, I'm new here. Been a Jim Henson fan since I was little and have always had a true love for him. Recently got an original script from the show and a cast from the creature shop. I love everything Jim Henson.

    Hi GURMAN, welcome to the forum! You'll find you're just like us, as we're all Jim fans here. :jim:

    Your mentioning of that original script is sparking my interest. What episode's script to you acquire? That sounds like a really awesome piece. :)

    Hi Gurman. Nice to have you here.
    This original script sounds cool (Muppet Show? Muppets Tonight?), as does the cast. Do you mean a cast that is used to sculpt/mold new characters? If so, please post photos or explain more about these things. I am very interested in these things just like Pepe the King Prawn is interested in a twenty-four year-old lady, hokay (cue laughing like Pepe). :rolleyes:
    Anyway, all kidding aside, welcome and just be sure to watch your step. Robin the Frog is so small that he sometimes isn't noticed...oops.

    Hi Ho!

    Long time lurker, first time poster. I've been a Jim Henson fan since I was very little, and I think I always will be! My favorite bits of Muppet entertainment are 'The Muppet Movie' and 'A Muppet Family Christmas'.

    In the real world I'm a freelance web designer/developer, and I run a geek culture blog called Top Hat Sasquatch, which has quite a bit of Muppet content.

    I look forward to hanging out here!

    It's nice to meet you, TommyDay and GURMAN. Welcome to Muppet Central Forum. I hope you have fun here in the forum, chatting with us members. I love it when you're Muppet fans, just like me. :)

    Original Muppet Show Script from Bryan Holgate the Art Director, it's the Elton John Episode. I will post pictures of that soon. Also the cast I posted the picture in the fantasy world section.

    Wow. That's amazing.
    You have a great find there. The Elton John episode happens to be one of my favorite TMS episodes ever. :)

    Man, with so many new members always coming in, I hope I don't get lost in the wave. XD

    Anyway, I've been lurking a little for a while as well, and I didn't know if I should just post some of my sketches in the Fanart section and introduce myself there, or if it was more "proper" to do it here first. I opted with what I felt was the safest route. xD
    Now, I felt a little... intimidated and insecure about joining any Muppet forums at first, just because I don't know my Muppets forwards and backwards like a lot of others seem to most of the time, and especially because I'm largely just into Sesame Street Muppets. But eh, I've decided now that that was kinda silly, so... here I am.

    Uh... hi? 8D;

    Hi, ShakaRaka! Welcome to the Muppet Central forum and uh... you should a great time here.

    That all right! I understand that you only know Sesame Street Muppets. I would LOVE to see your FanArt. Guess what? You are not the only... what kind of drawing is that on your avatar?

    FrackleFan2012 Well-Known Member

    LOL! Hey. Nice to meet you, ShakaRaka. I'm sorry that you don't know most Muppets stuff, except for Sesame Street. You can post your Muppet artwork in the "Fan Fiction and Fan Art" section of the forum. Anyway, I'm FrackleFan2012 and I'm pleased to welcome you to the Muppet Central Forum! :) (shakes hands with ShakaRaka)
    I hope you have a lovely time here and meet other members who are fans of the Muppets.

    Welcome to the forum. Trust me, I've been here for 6 years and I never have felt like I could keep up with people in their knowledge of the muppets. But don't let that stop you. You'll find that one section of the forum to move into and never leave XD

    Hee! Thanks, guys! ^^ And it's not that I'm not familiar with the "Muppet Show"-centric Muppets - I mean, I watched some of the movies growing up, even if it was kind of a long time ago, and I've seen an episode or two of the show on Youtube - I just haven't sat down to watch more and really familiarize myself with them enough that I feel confident enough to, say, write good fanfiction for them or something. (Just hypothetically; I'm not making any promises. xD)
    With the characters of Sesame Street, I actually do feel that connection. Probably because they're just a liiittle more ingrained in my childhood than the others. I dunno.

    But I promise to attempt to remedy that in the near future! *resolute fingerpoint up*

    ... OH! And the drawing in my Avatar is my own attempt at Oscar, btw.

    Oh, no. I knew exactly what you were saying. I'm sort of in the same boat...I've pretty much only seen what's available on DVD. I don't think my knowledge of the muppets is anything spectacular. All I meant was that you don't have to know everything to be welcome here. I stick to the general section and don't even bother with the muppets section. XD

    ShakaRaka Member

    Oh, I was replying more to the others. Unless I misunderstood what they meant, too. xD Ah well. Thanks everyone!
    Anyway, off to the Fanart Section.

    Hi there, ShakaRaka. I feel like I'm in the same boat as you because I am familiar with only Sesame Street and Muppet Show characters. I really don't know much about the Dark Crystal, or Emmet Otter's cast, or the Muppet Tonight characters. But I am learning a lot from being here on this forum.

    I also do a little bit of fan art every now and then. I have a full-color cartoon of the Muppet Show cast, and it has gotten positive feedback. Maybe we could share some fan art, perhaps? Great to have you here!

    Good one, ShakaRaka! When I was younger, I used to act like Oscar by saying opposite things, but what the hey. I am more of a Prarie Dawn kind of cute girl. Okay! So, nobody's perfect, but I DID grow up with Sesame Street. (sighs) Back then, my mom used to be a fan of Sesame Street when she introduce to me to it.

    My, but it has been a long time since I posted here! It took me most of the day to catch up, since there was no way I was missing posts by any new people!
    First of all, to all the new members, welcome! I'm Kathleen, though most people call me Kate. I don't put too much thought into nicknames, so just call me whatever variation of that you like! lol
    Becky, I'm in the same boat, in college and somewhat lonely for muppety friends! Good thing we got us here!
    Sarge, I love MFS, so you're in good company there!
    is my favorite muppet, or at least very high on the list.
    I was also pleasantly suprised to see the return of some MC legends from days gone by! Rian and Quinn, I may have come in just as you were going out, but I still remember you! Welcome back, and I hope you mannage to stick around! "You can not leave the magic."

    I find myself mostly around the fanfiction these days, probably because my crazy life means that I find myself coming here in short spiratic bursts these days. Anyway, that means I don't know how much I'll see of all of you for now, depending on where you tend to hang out when you're here, but if you'll stick around, I'm sure I'll catch up with you eventually! Happy to meet you all!
