I cant tell you how big a fan I am of the Muppets/Sesame Street Characters. I just love 'em. I even have a big book on Sesame Street ("Sesame Street Unpaved") and a book of quotes by Jim Henson, The Muppets, & Friends ("It's Not Easy Being Green"). It's quite amazing what Jim Henson did with his life and what an impact he left on this world. (Favorite quote by Jim: "My hope still is to leave the world a bit better than when I got here.").
note: there was to be a video of Caroll Spinney but for some reason the video wasnt working in Blogger, so here's the link: http://cosmos.bcst.yahoo.com/up/player/popup/?cl=8346001
