In July of 1999, Jerry Nelson, whose Muppet characters include The Count, Herry Monster, Sherlock Hemlock, Mumford the Magnificent, Floyd Pepper, and Robin the Frog (to name just a few), celebrated his 65th birthday. His wife Jan threw him a big surprise birthday party at their summer home, and friends of Jerry's from all over the US (and Canada!) came to celebrate this very special man. My gift to Jerry was an original recording of a scene and song I wrote for him, featuring the vocal talents of all the principal Muppet performers from Sesame Street, The Muppet Show, and Fraggle Rock. It was a wonderful evening, for a wonderful man.
