NEWS UPDATE: March 25, 2010
Do you have a Facebook? Did you know that a bunch of Sesame Street Muppets do too? That's right, Sesame Workshop has recently created official fan pages for Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster, Oscar the Grouch, Bert and Ernie, Grover, and Rosita. The Sesame Street Facebook fan page says that even more pages for characters are on the way. I wonder if Oscar accepts anyone's friend request?
The Jim Henson Company has released an hysterical new video as part of its podcast. It's only two minutes long and it'll probably make your day, so why aren't you watching it already?
Our ergonomic (look it up) friends at ToughPigs have analyzed the character of my personal favorite Muppet, The Great Gonzo. While I don't necessarily agree with everything they said, it's still very well written and an extremely entertaining read (just as everything on ToughPigs is).
Be sure to come back to The Muppet Mindset tomorrow. I had the fabulous opportunity to interview yet another Muppeteer and part one of that interview will be going up tomorrow. Trust me... you won't want to miss it!
And, to close, remember to go vote in round 2 of The Muppet Madness Tournament! Elmo is in a heated race with Bert and Ernie and Fozzie is currently ham-hocking the pig with 66% of the vote. So if you're not pleased with that (or if Miss Piggy is paying you to be not pleased with that) go vote! As for me? I'm with the bear all the way!
