    --------------
    Hector Berlioz, Ambrose Bierce, China Mieville, Brian Williams, Sam Neill. For various reasons. I find anyone who has the strength to keep chasing a dream despite the odds and the general stupidity of the unappreciative masses inspiring, and this would naturally include ALL of the Muppeteers.

    Aside from Muppeteers, who are a given for anyone on here, the first one to come to my mind is John Muir for being someone that respected and helped preserve the environment for the future to admire.

    Jim Henson was my most biggest inspiration. Other people who have inspired me to create my cartoons are....

    Richard Mueller who wrote for cartoons like Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, Darkstalkers, and The Real Ghostbusters.

    Scott Shaw! who did storyboards for Hanna-Barbera cartoons as well as DC comics.

    Tom Ruegger who wrote and helped create Tiny Toons, Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, and Animalia.

    Sid and Marty Krofft for their fantasy filled Saturday morning puppet shows.

    Voice actor Rob Paulsen who voiced neat characters like Yakko, Pinky, and many others.

    John and Faith Hubley who animated stuff for Sesame Street and the Electric Company like Letterman.

    And William Hanna and Joe Barbera who created wonderful characters like Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Scooby Doo, and The Flintstones.

    I wouldnt've created my webcomics without inspiration from all these talented people.

    People who inspired me?

    John Denver - his music and nature of his songs
    Jim Henson - singing, danicing, and sometimes going through a life you'll never forget
    Jerry Nelson - hos songong, his characters always brighten up my day

    That's all I can think of.

    Jim Henson is my biggest inspiration, but I will add a couple more:

    Frank Oz, because he's been working for about 50 years, and that's been a true gift.
    Jerry Nelson, because his singing is awesome.
    Dav Pilkey, because his books are so silly, and he has inspired me in my fan fiction.
    Dave Goelz, because he performs one of my favorite characters, Gonzo.
    Richard Hunt, because he seemed like he was always very joyful and happy.
    Moe Howard, because he gets to slap people. His job must've been fun.
    Larry Fine, because even though he cried a lot, he would always get his work done.
    Curly Howard, because he is so funny.
    Shemp Howard, because he is my favorite Three Stooge.
    Stan Laurel, because he is just so amazing, and he barely even speaks.
    Oliver Hardy, because he contributed to Stan Laurel, so that means he is awesome.
    Bud Abbott, because he plays a GREAT straight man.
    Lou Costello, because he just wanted to make people laugh, like the rest of ^^^^^^.
    Dr. Seuss, because his doodles could be really funny.
    Walt Disney, because I love his animation!!!
