    I especially love his performance of "When the River Meets the Sea" at Jim's funeral. He & Louise Gold did a very touching rendition of it.
    Come to think of it, every vocal performance by Jerry was great, especially:
    • "The Batty Bat" (Count von Count)
    • "That Furry Blue Mommy of Mine" (Herry Monster)
    • "X Marks the Spot" (Sherlock Hemlock)
    • "Telephone Rock" (Little Jerry)
    • "One Thing Leads to Another" (Biff & Judy Collins)
    • "Simon's Guessing Game" (Simon Soundman, SS Episode 406)
    • "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" (Floyd Pepper)
    • "Halfway Down the Stairs" (Robin the Frog)
    • "Henrietta's Wedding" (Slim Wilson with Louise Gold Muppet, MS Episode 211)
    • "Sheik of Araby" (Uncle Deadly, MS Episode 212)
    • "When the River Meets the Sea" (Emmet Otter)
    • "Shine on Me" (Gobo)

    When I first saw that picture, it was bigger. Thanks for posting it up.

    Oops, I included the wrong "full resolution" link. It should be this one.
  5. FrackleFan2012 Well-Known Member

    YAY! It's back! Thank you, Vincent!
    I hope Disney and The Muppets Studio doesn't take away the photo from Muppet Wiki.
  6. Vincent Liu Well-Known Member

    That is not the Muppet Wiki, actually.
  7. FrackleFan2012 Well-Known Member

    Then, what is that from?
  8. Vincent Liu Well-Known Member

    Something called the Grouches Wiki which I think is a complete rip-off of Muppet Wiki
    You should be able to view it by the link.

    I just saw on the newsstand Life Magazine's annual book of celebrities who passed away this year, and Jerry made the last page! Carroll Spinney drew a beautiful picture of Big Bird, with a tear in his eye, saying goodbye to Jerry, with the Count, Mumford, Herry, and Fat Blue surrounding him.
    This is quite an achievement, since outside of Muppet circles, Jerry Nelson isn't exactly a household name. Even when Jim died, even though he got his picture on the covers of a few magazines, his death was marginalized in the news, only because Sammy Davis, Jr. died the same day.

    Unfortunately haven't got a scanner handy, but if you stop by any magazine stand/drugstore/supermarket, you can check it out and be as surprised as I was.

    Cool about the Life Magazine page thing. Maybe someone else around here has a copy of the magazine that they could scan up a picture?
  16. muppetlover123 Well-Known Member

    maybe you could find the magazines website?

    I believe that picture was first at The Museum of Moving Image, where they held the Jerry Nelson Memorial.
  18. FrackleFan2012 Well-Known Member

    I do think so.
  19. Collgoff Well-Known Member

    I think so too!
