As part of her Make-A-Wish request, 11-year old Kristina Donnelly (1987-1999) performed the role of Baab the Sheep Towards the end of the time she was on the Muppets From Space set, they called production to a stop and Steve Whitmire and Dave Goelz called her up on the set of the boarding house dining room in front of the cast and crew. They gave her a special edition of the Hensonville News Observer, Baab the Sheep (the puppet she performed), and a bag full of dolls and character straws and other assorted things. Kristina got her role in Muppets From Space through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Her original request was to be an actress in a Muppet movie, but when Steve Whitmire and Dave Goelz (two of the main Muppet Performers) gave her a choice to either act or puppeteer, she chose to puppeteer. And along came Baab the Sheep. She spent a long time on the set of Muppets From Space, and had a lot of fun with the Muppet company, but her favorite people to be around were Steve and Dave. Her favorite Muppet was Rizzo the Rat (one of Steve Whitmire's characters).
