Your Thoughts: MC's 15th Birthday

    Happy birthday! Muppet Central is now 15 years old. The site debuted 15 years ago on January 28, 1998.

    Back when the site first started The Jim Henson Company still owned all of their original properties including the Muppets and Sesame Street. Two new feature films were in development simultaneously, Muppets From Space and Elmo in Grouchland. The Children's Television Workshop was gearing up for their upcoming 30th anniversary and The Jim Henson Company was developing an ambitious sci-fi series that would eventually become Farscape. Even though many changes have occurred throughout the EM.TV and Disney years, we’ve been honored to be a small part of it and to provide a place for fan discussion and interaction.

    We want to thank all of the staff, past and present who have given so much of their time and giftings to make Muppet Central a great place. Every member here is a vital part of what makes Muppet Central special. Thanks for doing your part in keeping Jim Henson’s vision of the Muppets alive. We believe great days are ahead.

    While we’re celebrating fifteen years, we are also looking towards the future. What do you think the future holds for the Muppets especially with their eighth (!) feature film on the horizon for March 2014? Sesame Street is in uncharted waters as they dearly miss two beloved veterans in Kevin Clash and Jerry Nelson. Fraggle Rock is also celebrating 30 years. What is your prediction for 2013? Let us know!

    Share your opinions in the below discussion and let us know what you think will happen with the Muppets in this upcoming year.

    :eek: She doesn't like virtual pie? Preposterous!

    I love how unfitting this thread has been to the occasion, yet how fitting it has been seeing that we're being the idiots we are on here.

    Once again, happy birthday to MC! :)

    Me too! I had no idea that Fraggle Rock was on television 30 years ago. I did not see that show until 1993 or was it 1994? Who cares! 15 years of MC? I only been on this site for one year. :excited: :coy: :smirk:

    Here's to another 15 years Muppet Central. I'm happy that I had joined this year although I wish I did earlier on. I've always loved the Muppets, and have been growing to love them more as an adult. As a child, I grew up watching "Sesame Street" and it is sad to see Jerry Nelson and Kevin Clash gone. I only hope Clash can find another job that can make him happy, like working on projects for the Henson company or going back to playing Clifford and working for Disney.
