OMG That is so funny! They're even rockin' with the monocle and beard! You are awesome, Frackleman!
I didn't take those photos but thanks for the comment. I love it when Abby, Zoe, Rosita, and Prairie Dawn all are wearing beards even though they are girls. LOL!
This may be a sign that The Count will appear in new material including TV appearances and newly-produced segments.
You really think so?
Yes, I do. The Count can't be retired. He's one of the most popular Sesame Street characters.
Hey everyone... I wrote a letter yesterday to tv Guide about how they didn't mention Jerry Nelson in the in memoriam section for 2012 (the issue came in the mail yesterday...I figure they will probably ignore me...but if a bunch of muppet fans right in maybe they will print one of the letters we write and give Jerry the respect and acknowledgement he deserves.... the e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org people may not know his name but he has had an impact equal (or greater than) to larry hagman or dick clark on the world of television
I love the pictures!!! its strange to me that they include Prairie dawn, I hope she would appear more often in the future!
I hope the new muppet movie will have The memory of Jerry Nelson.
Yup. Jerry should did. I hope Jerry Nelson gets a mention during the "In Memorian" montage of the Daytime Emmy Awards, best known for performing The Count.
I hope so, too.
Jerry Nelson and the Count appear in JibJab's annual year in review video:
There's also "Stay out of Chick-fil-A", which I find amusing.
Uh, should the video's theme be excluded from this thread? Well, in my opinion, the end of the world shouldn't be joked around.
The Mayan calendar thing has been a joke ever since the news came out.
I saw that video a few hours ago. Needless to say I was glad when I saw Jerry.
Yup. Me too.
I had a question: Listening to "Eye of the Storm" from Truro Daydreams (such a beautiful and poignant song, favorite one on the album), and I was wondering: Does anyone know who Matt is? He references Jim Henson, Richard Hunt, his daughter, and I think the Jon is Jon Stone.
Anyway, such a beautiful album all around. Really moving experience.
I believe the "Matt" you're talking about is Matt Vogel, who is a current puppeteer on Sesame Street and The Muppets. I think Matt may do The Count in the future because Jerry Nelson said that Matt would be the best performer of The Count if Jerry dies.
I bet Jerry put it down on his will!
I thought that at first, but all of the other names mentioned in the song are people who have died.
Although it's possible; it doesn't make mention of "Matt" in the song being dead, only Matt telling Jerry Nelson that his turn is going to come.
I'm late but yeah, the JibJab video having Jerry was terrific. I was very mad Jerry was left out of the tribute section of Katie Couric's "2012-in-review" special.
Separate names with a comma.
