    Many of you may have heard of a man who works with the Muppets named Peter Linz. Recently I have been talking with Peter about sevral things one of which was the old "Ask Jim Lewis" Thread that we had here on the forums. At first he was kind of nervous about starting one for him, but as we talked and as he read over some of the past things I have done he felt like this would be a great way to get in touch with his fans.

    Here is a quick look at his Muppet wiki page:


    The same rules that we had for "Ask Jim" thread apply to this one as well. The main one being only one question at a time.

    With that out of the way lets get the questions and answers flowing!

    Here is a note from Peter:

    Hello! I am fozzie....... . That's all I'm going to leave it at. Anyways, I'm so happy at the success of the last two Muppet movies ( well, not MMW that much..). I always love doing stuff that will help my fans know a bit more about me, such as Q&As. Remember, any questions you want to ask me, ASK IT ON THIS THREAD! ( And, if you figure out what my username is, please don't ruin it for others.) Well, have a great day! Bye!

    Oh sure when I said one question at a time I meant one question, per member at a time.

    Here is a answer from Peter:

    Hello, muppetspot2! Working on Bear in the Big Blue House was a joy, but I need to know what puppet on the show you were talking about. Bear? Ojo? Tutter? Thanks, and leave the answer below.

    Hi Peter.

    Do you still have any puppets from "The Puzzle Place"? Skye and Nuzzle were my introduction to your great work.

    Hi Colleen! thanks for all your wonderful questions, but as I said only one question per member per post. We will let it slide this time and just answer one at a time, but just keep that in mind. Thanks.

    I know this isn't really a question (and is presumptuous of me), but I'd really value to opinion of someone who is, one, a professional and, two, actually funny.

    Would you mind taking a look at a few of my videos and giving me your thoughts on how I could improve? (Hey, I guess I do have a question!)

    Hello Peter, one question I have is, did you like performing Snook in the TV show It's a Big Big World better, which was one of my favorite shows as a child, or Walter from the muppets?

    Hello, Peter. My real name is Renee and what I would like to know most of all is how did you create the voice for Tutter?

    Since you joined the Henson company in 1991, did you ever get to meet Richard Hunt before he passed away?

    Hey Peter!:fanatic: I'm pretty much geeking out like Walter right now because I can't believe I'm asking a question to one of my favorite muppet performers!!

    As a fan of Walter myself (hence my username;)), I'm curious, I don't mind if you're not allowed to spoil anything, but - what's next for Walter? Are there any upcoming projects or productions he'll be starring in??:fanatic:

    Hey, Peter, I have another question, I saw the Star Wars parody for Sesame Street for the Crumbly Pictures for Cookie Monster and you played the Mark Hamil puppet, what was that like?
