Hi everyone, it's your 'ol buddy Vic Romano here, hoping to provide you with some real quality entertainment over this here l'il device we've come to know as the in-tur-net. Inspired by ToughPigs, and prompted by my good friend Beau here at MC, I thought you all would enjoy reading some older Muppet story publications on-line. But first, credit given where credit is due, and that's to the originators of this idea; ToughPigs; a great resource to any Muppet Fan, so here's their collection: The Tale of the Bunny Picnic Written by: Louise Gikcow, Illustrated by: Diane Dawson Hearn One of my favorites as a kid: The Many Face of Ernie Written by: Judy Freudberg, Tony Geiss & Herbert Hartig; Illustrated by: Norman Chartier I'll Miss You Mr. Hooper Based on the television script by: Norman Stiles, Illustrated by: Joe Mathieu I Can't Wait Until Christmas Written by: Linda Lee Maifair, Illustrated by: Joe Ewers Another fav from my youth: The Great Twiddlebug Mystery Written by: Revena Dwight, Illustrated by Roger Bradfield The Case of the Missing Mother Written by: James Howe, Illustrated by William Cleaver Cookie Monster and the Cookie Tree Written by: David Korr, Illustrated by Joe Mathieu Now my setup won't be nearly as fancy as ToughPigs, but I hope you'll bear with me. This first book is actually the reason for this thread. Not too long ago, in a forum not so far away; I posted about a book where Beauregard saves the day (The actual title of the book) by freeing monsters locked in the theatre's basement. Muppet Central's own Beau wasn't aware of this book and I told him I'd post it when I got the chance, so here's that chance, making this next book's post dedicated to the guy we all love, Muppet Central's long standing citizen and all around crazy cat from the UK: Beauregard Now this was a very ambitious project indeed, so the only site I know of to do this is PhotoBucket, so unfortunately, the only way to show it to you is one page at a time, but I assure you that it's worth it (especially you, Beau!). And besides, you can save these images to your hard disk's if'n you please and enjoy them yourselves whenever you want. Bo Saves the Day Written by: Jocelyn Stevenson, Illustrated by: Richard Walz Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page 8 Page 9 Page 10 Page 11 Page 12 Page 13 Page 14 Page 15 Page 16 Page 17 Page 18 Page 19 Page 20 Page 21 Page 22 Page 23 Page 24 Page 25 Page 26 Page 27 Page 28 Page 29 Page 30 Page 31 Page 32 This next one is one of my all time favorites and is our next selection due to a topic about a song from the Muppet Show called “Friendship” discussed by a few members after hearing it on MCR. The song is sung by Kermit and Robin, and it seems that the episode it's from and our next book have some similarities. Another interesting note, is that this is one of the few Muppet books that is written and illustrated by the same person. As far as the art is concerned, I feel Mr. Stevenson really captures the personality of the gang and moves them into a very cartoon-sight-gagged world very wonderfully. The Whale Tale Written and Illustrated by: John Stevenson Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page 8 Page 9 Page 10 Page 11 Page 12 Page 13 Page 14 Page 15 Page 16 Page 17 Page 18 Page 19 Page 20 Page 21 Page 22 Page 23 Page 24 Page 25 Page 26 Page 27 Page 28 Page 29 Page 30 Page 31 Page 32 That's all for now, but if this thread gets a good response, then you can be sure more books will be posted, continuing with: Muppet Manners and Robin Hood.
