    Happy 12th birthday Muppet Central! This site would be nothing if it weren't for all you crazy people. ;) The fans are one of the best parts of Muppet Central, so this is your birthday too!

    And I am so proud of my Kermie (Phillip) for all that you do. I see how much love you have for this site and how dedicated you are to making it the best it can be and I love you for that. It's been a long and wonderful journey to make with you and I'm looking forward to many, many more Muppety moments to share with you, our two boys, and all the fantastic Muppet fans that make Muppet Central their home.

    Now, did someone say cupcakes? I'm waiting for mine! :mad:

    I remember the Muppet Central chat room!

    Does that make me cool?

    Well, if you asked ME, your screen name makes you cool! (Hee hee) Remembering the chat room just seals the deal! (Bonus points if you remember Jerry Nelson in the chat room)

    I totally did a double take when I saw your siggy and was like, God, that link I have in my siggy, I don't even remember having that site! LOL I thought I just hadn't updated my signature in ages.

    Random story: I once told one of my friends that his screenname was uncreative as it was just his first initial, last name. He countered saying mine (muppetfreak) was uncreative. I countered with "Mine would be only be uncreative if my name were Marla Uppetfreak!" This, of course, become my nickname for a while.

    I am an old time member but I stopped being active when I worked for Sesame and now I am mostly a lurker. Trying to get back into the groove. I do not remember Jerry Nelson in the chat! How'd I miss that?

    Gratuitous Skeksis bc he is awesome: :scary:

    Wow. 12 years? That's staggering. And I came to online Muppet fandom in Jan. 2000, so it's a 10-year anniversary for me!

    Congratulations, Phil and Cindy, and everyone else who have put such hard work into this site over the years. Keep it up!

    And, now, just because I'm not here that often, I'm going to post with several little Muppet smilies. LOL!

    I remember first logging onto the old Delphi forums for the very first time from our college library in the summer of 1998. A lot has changed since then for the Muppets, the website, and of course for me personally.

    During the years that followed college I was fortunate enough to discover that one of our members was also a neighbor in my first apartment. He remains to this day a dear friend and trusted confidant. Another former forum member was responsible for helping my wife find her first teaching job after being laid off fro ma previous employer.

    As a Muppet fan, I've been fortunate enough to meet many of the people behind and under the Muppets and even had the chance to watch a few of them work. They are truly an amazing and talented group of people and I hope that we are fortunate enough to enjoy their work for many years to come.

    oh, and one other thing that's happened in the last 12 years...I've finally crossed that magical border known as "senior membership". Yes, it's taken me 12 years to get here but this post marks my 1000th posting. Happy birthday MC! And I hope that in 12 years I will be sharing my 2000th post.

    Happy birthday! I've discovered this great site some years ago and was like to find a treasure for my muppet style life. Thank you for everything. And my wishes for this 2010 are the last two seasons of TMS on DVD and after that whatever thing will be welcome.

    Happy 12 Years, MC! I remember trolling the site way back when it had the old design. I had actually found it through the now-defunct "Sesame Seventies" site about the old Disco records.

    Plus, the anniversary menu has always been one of my favorite ones!

    I first found Muppet Central in 2005 and now it is the best excuse I have to NOT do school work! (I take a correspondence course! ;))

    May it stand for as long as there are Muppets, and even longer than that!

    Congratulations MC! although i very rarely ever post anymore i still check the site all the time. I remember the first time i saw the site and knew i had to get into somehow. I'm just thinking back to the "retro format" as well as the old Henson.com and Muppetworld.com site at the time as well. This site as well as the others have grown so much and I'm sure will continue to do so! I miss all my MC friends!:)

    12 years eh? Seems like only yesterday I discovered this site. I do remember my parents went online around that time. Although I don't post very much anymore, allow me to say, here's to the next 12 years!

    Happy 12th Birthday Muppet Central, I can't remember when I first found this site, I know it was after Delphi and the redesign, probably 2002

    Happy Birthday, Muppet Central! I just joined, which is a testament to what a fantastic site that you have - 12 years old and going strong.

    One question: why does the news link on the site only go to 2007? Is that portion of the site not updated any longer?
