    I'm the new person here and I thought I'd share some stuff. I've liked the Muppets for as long as I can remember and have been watching them ever since. I remember meeting bot Jane and Cheryl Henson at "The Vision of Jim Henson Exhibit" @ the University of Maryland I believe I may have there autographs someplace. I really like the new Muppet figure assortment and I plan on collecting them all. So, that's basically it for me.

    Well, I've actually been here a little while but since i just dove in head first so to speak I missed this thread until now.

    I'm John and I'm an artist. 'Sounds like an AA introduction doesn't it? I was one of the original Sesame St. kids(meaning the first kids who watched SS. I was never "on" the show) and so I jumped on the Muppet Show and watched it religiously when it first came on. I kind of lost touch though in the mid eighties after Labyrinth. I Didn't have cable so I only ever saw Fraggle Rock a couple of times for instance. I basically spend my time working, hanging out with the world's coolest wife and bouncing back and forth between various obsessions: Muppets, obscure music, Painting, Juggling, Composing, Movies...

    Anyone who isn't old?

    I'm very new to this forum...and muppetcentral, but I was just wondering...is there anyone who isn't older than 20 here? I feel so alone... I've been a muppet fan since early childhood from watching the muppet movies over and over again along with Sesame Street. I now collect as much merchandise as I can (if I like it/can afford it) :). I'm only 14 and I feel very strange after I read all these posts and websites from people who are twice my age or more! If you are a muppet fan my age, I'd love to get in touch with you...because the muppets just aren't popular with my age group!

    Thankyou all very much,


    PS. I am also very into Lord of The Rings, The Neverhood, and the MYST series! :D

    Hello! I had a great idea a while back! I decided it would be fantastic to make stop-motion films with the muppet figures!!! I've only done some tests so far...and I can't do the voices...so they will probably be pretty wierd and non-muppety except I'll do some musical ones sometimes... I just can't do the voices...

    Oh and I don't have a website..so if anyone wants to see the videos it would be VERRRRRRRY nice of you to put them on yours!!:D

    I wonder who here CAN do the voices ... my father used to do a good Kermit and many other voices ... I've attempted Kermit, but it's more like a bad Ernie.

    I try out a lotta voices .... look strange walking around L.A. at night practicing saying "but befoooore we go ..."

    I probably should have done this a long time ago, but ...

    My name is Guillermo Gomez. I'm 19. I'm a student at DeAnza college, and I am taking courses in animation because I want to create my own animated shorts and become the next Mike Judge. My hobbies include drawing, surfing the net, posting on mesage boards like these, adding to my media collection, screwing around with my friends, and drawing. I've been drawing since I was 7, and have enjoyed Sesame Street since I was 3.

    While you're at it, Garrett, see if you find any classic WB cartoons such as listed on my want list link below. I'm a fiend for those.

    PS. BETA? That explains the quality of the Jim Henson Hour episode you sent me. Which I liked very much, BTW.

    I sent you a Henson Hour ep? I don't remember sending anyone anything! Weird. Sure it was me? Probably Sweet Vacation/The Soldier and Death right? I love that ep.

    My Beta tapes actually look better than that! The quality of that ep is explained by it being recorded at SLP when I was a kid, on a crappy VCR, then RERECORDED (duped) to ANOTHER TAPE also when I was a kid ALSO ON SLP .... which results in utterly horrible quality. Sigh .... We were young and naive about SLP/SP then ...

    Phillip says he'll be sending me some nicer stuff in exchange for some junk I had laying around.

    As for the USC archives, they have dismantled them and put them into storage. They literally got rid of anything that isn't utterly mainstream and available on DVD. They used to have great stuff like the Pogo Special Birthday Special etc. Sigh .... so, no going. No Muppet stuff anymore even.

    We had all the Pink Panther tapes when I was a kid but I don't recognize the titles on your list. I dunno if I'd remember Pink Panther titles anyway. (Dad did some Pink licensing.)

    I do have a bad copy of Tales From the Far Side. The one I'd REALLY like to see is Tales from the Far Side II .... which was only released on an expensive video from Larson himself ....

    Precisely. It was along with all that rare Monty Python stuff. Take it from me, guys, he's got quite a selection when it comes to Python.

    The Pink Panther list I made is of cartoons that I have not found available on any video compilations in the United States. I did just purchase a PAL-VHS compilation tape containing some of the titles on my list, and it should be arriving soon.

    When that video offer came in a Far Side daily calendar, I begged my mom to get me one of 'em. :( I think they might be available in PAL format in the UK.

    Hey Garrett - got any Fraggle Rock? I'm also fiending for that. Check my inventory!
  13. tygerbug

    tygerbug Active Member

    Yeah, I saw the same offer in the same calendar. Lemme know if that ever turns up in tape trades.

    Thanks for digging the Python stuff. Forget what I sent you now, but I consider myself to have pretty much anything important when it comes to Python. =) I think I have a vague memory of this. Prolly sent you Rutland Weekend Sprimpo, with the Ricochet Brothers.

    I am verry unknowing when it comes to Fraggle Rock. Have mostly nothin'. About 12 episodes, apparently episodes 1-8 and maybe 9-12, turned up in the garage in low quality beta versions taped off of HBO when they first aired. I sent them to Philip to look at.

    Hey there, I am a 14 year old muppet fan. It's funny my sister (who is 3 years older than me) makes jokes that she started my interest in muppets by coloring a picture of baby animal in a coloring book and putting on my crib in the hospital when i was born

    Hello! I guess fate lead me to this thread since I'm new here. I've been a Muppet fan for a long as I can remember. I've made sure that my son gets the Muppet experience, also. The Muppets are something that the whole family can watch together, what with the puppet appeal for kids and the humor that adults can appreciate. I'll always believe that Jim Henson was a creative/entertainment genious before his time.

    Welcome to the fourm, Ornery! (LOL... I just love that name!) It's always nice to hear of someone exposing the new generation to the Muppets. We're glad you found us.

    Hello all.

    Old-timers here will remember me from the early days of Muppet Central when you guys had that Delphi forum. I was known as MuppetFan79 (lame name) on the boards, but my real name was (and still is) Rich Borosky. I hung around here a lot in 1999, and even helped author a couple of quizzes. I recently dug out my box of Muppet tapes , so I thought I'd stop in and say hi. I hope SOMEONE out there remembers me...

    Thanks Phil.

    I'm glad to know that someone remembers me. I hope to stick around for a while...
