(Kind of) Weekly Muppet Quotes Spotlight: Jerry Nelson

Casey Daron - As every Muppet fan knows, legendary Muppeteer Jerry Nelson has passed away a few weeks ago. It really hit me hard, because he was one of the few Muppeteers I actually wanted to meet in person. I sent him a letter a week before he passed, telling him about my fandom, and how he was such a great guy. I don't think he received it. Jerry was a great man. He will never be forgotten. Mr. Nelson will always be inside our hearts. In honor of him, I have collected a set of quotes from his most memorable characters. Thank you, Mr. Nelson, for the enjoyment you brought into our lives.
