This is so lovely and heartfelt. I’ll be right back, I have to go wipe my eyes.

This is Kermit the frog, puppet-eering Jim Henson, by Mike Mitchell.
I’m a huge fan of Mitchell’s artwork, and the Muppets, so I figured it appropriate on the 22nd anniversary of Henson’s passing, to post this picture.

They really don’t look at me when they see Elmo. They run to Elmo because it’s a friend of theirs that they’ve been talking to and communicating with and singing with for so many years. We’ve found that the delusion is not broken by seeing us puppeteers. — Kevin Clash

Man, this quote is cool, Kevin Clash is awesome… but I saw a picture of Elmo and read the beginning of the quote “They really don’t look at me when they see Elmo.” and I heard it in Elmo’s voice and it was the saddest thing ever.

Oh yeah, that’s happened to me lots of times :-) Its also really funny when full grown adults get so engrossed in talking to “Dusk the Fuzzygoth” while I’m standing right there, and then suddenly blink really hard as they realize they’re talking to a hand covered in felt, and then fall right back into conversation with the puppet.
The weirdest thing for me is when I bring my puppet around to sci fi cons, and there are storm troopers and movie set worthy zombie costumes and people dressed as giant lego people, and yet every person I walk past is all “ZOMG ITS A MUPPET!!!”

My first Muppet movie :-)
seanreidy:

In honor of the new movie ”The Muppets” my friend Tim painted this picture of “Muppets Take Manhattan” as a “Choose Your Own Adventure Book.”
I keep telling him to start a Tumblr to showcase this kind of stuff but he hasn’t done it yet. What a talented jerk.

THIS WAS VERY FUN TO DRAW.
nparts:


The Muppets are back on the big screen!
But what have they been doing for the last 12 years? Steve Murray takes a look at some of their failed casting attempts. Also! Chris Knight gives their new outing FOUR STARS! Also!Gonzo wins our Tournament of Muppets! Man, it’s a good day to be a Muppet.



This is quite brilliant.

This is amazing. I think Dr. Bunsen Honeydew as Walter White is my favorite!
