    I find all of this stuff on websites like Youtube, Deviantart, and Tumblr. Then, I type in "Jerry Nelson" to find those results.

    Here's a tribute video of The Count counting the voices of Jerry Nelson. This was made by Deparrie.

    Here's a video posted by The Jim Henson Foundation of a audio clip of Jerry Nelson reading "It's Not Easy Being Green" in Gobo Fraggle's voice.

    Here's the link to The Count's interview for BBC Radio 4's More or Less from December 11, 2009. :batty:

    I'm not sure if Jerry Nelson actually did the puppetry for The Count during this interview or if Jerry just spoke in The Count's voice.

    Uh...I think the video's a misnomer, Frackleman. :smirk: Is there anyway to correct that?

    I don't understand what you meant, theSHE124.
    Is it all my fault?
    Which video is a misnomer?
  7. FrackleFan2012 Well-Known Member

    I made the correction.
    Here's a video posted by The Jim Henson Foundation of an audio clip of Jerry Nelson reading a quote by Gobo Fraggle from the book, "It's Not Easy Being Green".

    Is that much better, theSHE124?

    Oh! I thought it was something else! I do have that book! It was given to me as a birthday present, and I'm drawing my own picture in it. :)

    I what to thank you all for your posts. It's so nice to know I'm not alone in feeling the way I do. Nobody around me understands how or why the death of someone I never met or even knew breaks my heart the way it does. I barley understand it myself. I just know my heart holds a very special place for Jim Henson and all his puppeteers. They are all loving people, people who I think mirror my own heart. People I think would understand me if I just had the chance to met them. I'm a sensitive person and have struggle with being this way all my life. The world thinks men are supposed to be a cretin way. I've always had a big heart, and so did Jim, Richard, and Jerry. You can see that in all that they did in their lives. I had hoped to met them someday, but will never get that chance. They taught the world so much, and I just wanted to personal thank them for that, and I beg you if by any chance any of the other remaining Henson Company performers comes across this post to E-Mail, so that I might get that chance that I never had with Jerry, Richard, and Jim. The loss of Jerry has been tearing me up for almost a week now. I miss him and feel so alone in that grief, but reading threw these posts, even though I have no one to talk to about it I know I'm not alone in my feelings. Thank you all again. :jim::smirk:;)

    You to, Skeeter 2 B.
    I miss Jerry Nelson, too.
    He taught us how to count and how to catch the tail by the tiger.
    To me, he was one of the greatest legendary Muppet performers of all-time.
    As said by the Trash Heap, "You Cannot Leave the Magic."

    You would think that Sesame Street would finally release that storyline on DVD already.

    Yeah. I hope they would.
    It's surprising that Sesame Workshop never released any of the Slimey in Space episodes on DVD or on iTunes yet.

    Message I get:
    "This video contains content from Lionsgate, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds."

    Yes, I live in the USA. Videos are illegal here for some odd reason in the USA if Lionsgate owns rights to it and they are very strict about it. :smirk:
