  • Hi.  I recently found these at home and they are both in original packaging.  They are from 1981.  I cannot find very much info about these on the internet, other than your pics.  I am wondering if these are valuable at all.  Can you possibly provide any other information on these 2.  Thanks for any help you can provide.

  • Hey, Danny! I found some transcripts of some old MuppetZine articles in a text file kicking around in a folder buried on my hard drive (don't recall when/where I acquired it). I really enjoyed re-living Muppet fandom of the 90's by re-reading the articles (still holds up even after 20 years). I put some of the more encyclopedicly-notable ones (i.e. ones that we've cited as sources for quotes in articles on the wiki and such) so that others could reference them and enjoy the now-historical information in context. See the archive here. Hope this is cool... if not, feel free to go ahead and take 'em down.

  • Hi, Can you help me identify a Muppet toy? It says 1978 Gabriel/CBS Toys on the bottom, just like my Sesame Street vinyl toys from that era, but I don't know the character.  Here's a picture: http://oi62.tinypic.com/t6wh29.jpg

  • First of all, hilo. (hi + hello) Second of all, happy 45 years of Sesame Street.

    Apparently, We're Doing a Sequel... Gonzo predicted the future. Toy Story 4 is being made. I know, I know.

  • For many years now people have celebrated Grouch Day on October 15.  I have enjoyed my grumpy day each year.  However, credit has not been given to the original "Grouch".  although Oscar is a wonderful icon deserving recognition, the history of the day can be confirmed in Chase's Calender of Events.  Now retired elementary school  teacher, Alan Miller, was given the honor of the dedicated day by a former student whose grandfather was co-founder of the publication back in the 80's.  In good fun, she asked her grandfather to make it official that she had the world's grouchiest teacher.  Al's birthday, Oct. 15. was celebrated yearly at  Carter Middle School in Clio MI with kids being issued a "Grouch License" allowing them to be grouchy all day.  He would also allow them to sit in wastebaskets to have their pictures taken as "throwaway children".  I taught with him for many years and enjoyed listening to calls from classrooms around the world asking what it was like to have the grouchiest teacher.  He is a very interesting character that  I think you would benefit from by getting to know him. If you want to know more feel free to contact me, or better yet, call the ole curmudgeon yerself!  I can provide you with contact information.

  • I'm about to add a bunch of linen stuff I found on ebay, but I thought you should know about this seller. There's bound to be stuff in there we don't have yet.

    • Yeah, he's been around forever. He has nice stuff, but it's crazy overpriced, so everything gets relisted a dozen times. But I suppose it makes him happy.

      I can't believe it took me two weeks to respond -- work's been crazy and stressful. I'm trying to clear out more space for happy wiki times.

    • Hooray for that -- always makes me happy to see you around here because I know it means you found some free time to play :)
