Muppets!

After 20 years at the park,
I let my hair grow long, didn't shave and
I got a job with the Muppets!
working on the new Muppet show "Muppets Tonight"
as a prop builder...

With the new Muppet movie that just came out,
I thought I'd share a few photos from my Muppet Days!

Here I am with Fozzie and my friend Paul
who was a costumer on the show...

We had lots of really great guest stars on the show
one of my favorite was Don Rickles...
for being an insult comic, I have to say
he's one of the nicest people in show business

I couldn't resist putting on Kermit for a photo!
Because of the scale of the Muppets
everything had to be specially made...
very little could be just store bought...
In the next few days
I'll post more of the props I made
but here's a few...

Kermits bamboo cane.
made out of a Aluminum rod...

2 canes were made...
One for close up shots and one for distance.

when the Muppets had a press conference,
I had to make Rizzo a directors chair...

One of my favorites
GONZO!

I love that pic of you with Fozzie - he's always hamming it up. Actually, it's Miss Piggy who hams it up. Get it? HAMS it up? Wokka wokka!
