    Hi everyone! I'm Mike!
    I grew up with Sesame Street and watched the Muppets when they first came out. Life long fan of Jim Henson and everyone that has had the creativity to bring them to life! I'm an actor/comedian and a sometime writer, but my wife is the real talent there! Which brings me to this point here. I'm going to turn her children's books into a show! Originally I was going to cartoon route, but after a quick visit with Mike Quinn at an event I was inspired to go with Muppets! So be prepared to have me asking about builds and any info I can get to make this show the best! It's going to be a long journey but I think in the end a very satisfying one!

    KissCartoon apparently got shut down. KimCartoon is the new site.

    I actually found this by accident lol! I went to sign up for Mike's web page for learning how to work with muppets and stumbled on to this forum. I've watched a few building videos on YouTube and look forward to the web series coming soon. In the mean time I'm sketching the characters for the show and making story boards. I've done some voice acting for Star Wars fan films and my Scottish accent is spot on(had a fellow from Glascow convinced we grew up blocks from each other) so I will be doing at least three of the characters. I'm hoping to have at least five of the characters built by the end of summer, and have at least the first four books story boarded and some rough shots done then too. My plan is to debute the pilot episode by December, then start to market it while filming more of the books.

    KissCartoon did not get shut down. Last time I checked, the site was still up.

    No, KissCartoon got shut down, because i think it got too many copyright strikes. I'm pretty sure KimCartoon is by the same people behind KissCartoon, and that it's their new site. Do NOT go to the KissCartoon with ".io" at the end, it's fake and loaded with pop-ups and viruses.

    I'm on KissCartoon right now and I am not getting any pop-ups and viruses at all. The site doesn't like fake at all to me in my opinion.

    Yep. It seems they're equals, or possibly some pages are shut down.

    Why though?

    No idea. Maybe they're the same creators and that's just a backup website.

    Hello Muppet Central! I found this wonderful site last night, and have been going nuts over it! I started watching the Sesame Street when I was a baby, and my grandma made me an Elmo plush, as well as Elmo pajamas for me (and matching ones for Elmo!). When I was in first grade I started watching the Muppet Show as well as Fraggle Rock (my great grandparents had all of them on DVD). I have always been interested in making my own Muppets, as close as they can be to in the show. I am 17 and don't have a lot of money, so I am limited on supplies and patterns. For my first build I am using my 1978 Animal Fisher Price, and adding wires as well as Ostrich Feathers to his head (that is what the original animal was made out of). Then I'd like to build a muppet from scratch. Does anyone have any ideas who to start with? I am thinking Elmo, because he was always my best friend and seems easy enough. Does anyone have any tips/free patters/dimensions for me? Anything would be lovely. So happy to have found this site and looking forward to some cool builds:)
