As a fan of the Muppets, I felt I should post the sad news of the passing of one of the greats- Jerry Nelson. The man behind such characters as Kermit's nephew Robin, Lew Zealand and Floyd Pepper died at his home in Massachusetts last night. On Sesame Street, he was best known as Count Von Count, among many others and he was Gobo Fraggle and Marjory the Trash Heap on Fraggle Rock. Others may also know him as The Ghost Of Christmas Present in The Muppets Christmas Carol.

Nelson died aged 78, he had been suffering from emphysema for years. Story- click

It is frightening to think that the Muppets (or the people who made them so real) are growing old and dying.
