The Fisher-Price Animal puppet!!!

My all-time favourite Muppet collectable is the Fisher-Price Animal Muppet made between 1976 -1979. Although I had watched Sesame Street, The Muppet Show and owned several toy Muppet puppets (Big Bird, Kermit, Miss Piggy) it was the Animal puppet that got me hooked on collecting Muppet memorabilia! I wanted one of these soooooo badly when I was a kid, but by the time I had convinced my parents of its importance to my well being (and that it was worth the cost - this was an expensive toy in the late 70's!), Fisher-Price had stopped producing their Muppet show series of toys. Thus, the hunt began, and over many years I searched flea-markets and garage sales to no avail, (there was no e-bay back then, or an Internet...or computers!) until one day when I was 16 I got one as a gift from a high school friend who knew how obsessed I was about the Muppets. At last! Ironically, it was the last character I needed to complete the Fisher-Price series of plush puppets and dolls, as in my search for the Animal puppet I had collected all the others in the set!

I've added a few items to "Other Henson Worlds" and the "Muppets" pages...take a look! :)

To this is going take a while!

I've searched through my photos and have found all the images that I had used on the old website. Now I just have to re-crop them and post them here on the right pages. There's a lot of Muppet stuff to go through so it will take a while before this blog starts to look full, but keep checking back as I'll be adding pictures daily.

Also, I just bought one of the new Fraggle Rock bobble head dolls by Manhattan Toys! Very cool. They had Gobo and Wembley at the store. It was a hard choice but I went with Gobo. I had to get at least one, I couldn't help myself!!! :)

Better late than never!

I know it's strange but this is actually my first blog ever! Soon, I'll be posting all of the info about collecting Muppet Memorabilia and other nifty stuff that I once had on my webpage, which is now offline. That's right, in a few days "Mikey's Muppet Memorabilia Museum" will be returning to the web, right here at my new blog! So check back for updates, bye for now.
