    The FR one-shot a tribute to Jerry Nelson? Yes! I will do the best I can and trust me, no mix ups. Just Fraggle Rock, because I guess that was show I remember the most as a child, before Sesame Street, and anything else.

    It's hard to believe that it's been a year since Jerry Nelson passed away. I remember the day I found out he died like it was yesterday. I just couldn't believe it. Jerry Nelson, one of the greatest Muppet performers of all time,was dead. Just thinking about it is making me a little teary eyed. Rest in peace, Mr. Nelson.

    Well, it's been a year pretty much, but it still seems like yesterday that I logged onto Facebook, and the first thing I saw on my homepage was that Muppet Wiki posted picture of Jerry Nelson with the caption: "RIP, Jerry. We love you. <3", which left me speechless for a few minutes. Here we are 365 days later, and I'm spending as much time as I can here on Muppet Central, listening to every song on the radio that has been chosen to honor Jerry, while I wear a shirt with The Count on it. Later on, I will also watch Stephanie D’Abruzzo's famous clip montage of 150 of Jerry's characters.

    To see what I did in honor of Jerry 2 weeks ago, go to the 379th post of this thread: http://www.muppetcentral.com/forum/threads/international-skits-on-youtube.30514/page-19

    RIP, Jerry! As usual, I hope you're having one wonderful time with Jim and Richard up there!

    R.I.P Jerry Nelson :sing:(1975-2004) :fishy: (1978-2001) :crazy: (1975-2004) :cluck: (1978-2004) :boo: (1975; 1992-2003) :smirk: (the run of Fraggle Rock) :jim: (1975-? Discontinued) :search: (1970's-Early 2000s) and whether you're a muppet fan or you've never seen Sesame Street :batty: was his most popular character of all! :batty: (1972-2012). Though it's unfortunate that in the news reports of his death they didn't even mention his work on the muppet show or fraggle rock. R.I.P Jerry R.I.P

    Not to mention some SS skits with Jon Stone, Joe Raposo, and Jeff Moss. Jerry Juhl and Jane Henson help out too. RIP to our beloved "J friends."

    Jerry Nelson impacted me right from the start when I was less than four years old when he performed my favorite character on Sesame Street, The Count. Later on I loved watching him as the hip Sgt. Floyd Pepper, Lew Zealand and Crazy Harry and many others on The Muppet Show and the muppet films from the original TMM and even when he was ill in TM'11 as the announcer. After hearing about his death two years ago, it was quite sad, and he is still missed. RIP :(. Now here is my all time favorite Sgt. Floyd Pepper, Lew Zealand moments.



    My favorite Lew Zealand moment is in the TMS episode of his first appearance at the end of "The Wedding Sketch".

    I watched MMW again(!!!) last night and heard Jerry's voiceover which was an absolutely lovely gesture on Disney's part.

    Whilst I still mourn, and argue that no-one will ever match the original talents that created our beloved characters, we are very lucky to have a bunch of guys carry on the legacy of them with the love and passion they share with the fans.

    Rest in peace Jerry Nelson, you will not be forgotten.

    Wow...2 years ago already...RIP Jerry! Not even your most famous character can keep track of every single person who loves and misses you dearly!

    On another note, please check out my YouTube channel (classicssmfan) for a few goodies that I'll be honoring Jerry Nelson with.

    Here's what I put on Facebook: It was 2 years ago today that Muppeteer Jerry Nelson passed away. Jerry played lots of wonderful characters like the Count von Count, The Amazing Mumford, Herry Monster, Mr. Johnson, Floyd Pepper, Robin the Frog, Lew Zealand, Crazy Harry, and Gobo Fraggle. To celebrate him, here is the episode Sesame Street did as a tribute to him. Here's the cast: Marty Robinson as Telly, Leslie Carrara as Sigrid and Abby Cadabby, Eric Jacobson as Lars and Grover, Kevin Clash as Elmo, David Rudman as Cookie Monster, Fran Brill as Prairie Dawn, Carmen Osbahr as Rosita, Jerry Nelson (archived audio) as the Count, Alan Muraoka as Alan, Sonia Manzano as Maria, Chris Knowings as Chris, Nitya Vidyasagar as Leela, Roscoe Orman as Gordon, Alison Bartlett as Gina, Bob McGrath as Bob, and Emilio Delgado as Luis. Bert and Ernie, Baby Bear, Oscar the Grouch, the Two-Headed Monster, and Zoe also appear. http://www.sesamestreet.org/video_player/-/pgpv/videoplayer/0/9c57ade5-3af3-4953-9c52-63e02a19a873

    Whoa, OK, did you really feel the need to list all the performers and actors in the episode?

    I just wanted to show credits or something like that. The show certainly doesn't do that.
