    Holy crap on a stick, man. HOW on Earth did you get all of those!! I'm lucky to have a stamped-signature picture of Jim with Kermit. >>

    :eek: Which at the moment is just about ruined, as my cousin decided to use the back of it as a piece of paper.

    That's amazing! Hey, uh, how'd you get those letters? I mean, yes the autograph is easy, but two pages of letter? Amazing.

    Besides sending a request for an autograph, is there anything else required? :)

    Sometimes a SASE helps, but not always... if your friendly and polite, compliment their work, and ask tons of questions!
    Those were my main points to getting responses...

    Thanks all

    As for other autographs, all I got was Mr. T :smirk:

    What did you say in the letter to them asking for the autograph that would get them to write back a two page letter? That's aweeesome!
  12. travellingpat

    travellingpat Well-Known Member

    Well I asked them about the days on TMS, what their fav character and movie, for advice, seperate questions about each character so it doesnt look like a form letter, who their fav guest star was, any fav memories, what was jim and richard like, that kind of stuff
  13. MeepBorkMeep

    MeepBorkMeep Well-Known Member

    Hmm. Simple, yet brilliant. What were there responses like? If you want to share, that is. Thanks so much for telling all this stuff. ;)

    If I ever sell a script and get Frank Oz to direct, I'll see what I can get off him.

    I only have a signed headshot from Frank Oz, and a picture "signed" by Big Bird and Oscar from Carroll Spinney. I would love for Mr. Spinney to sign my copy of The Wisdom of Big Bird, but that isn't exactly possible unless I suddenly meet him one day.
