Ryan Dosier – Greetings Muppet fans! Today we have a mission for you. Our friend Ivan Guerrero submitted a great idea for an article to me: Your Most Prized Muppet Possession. He described it to me as sort of a condensed version of our popular Muppet Fan’s Muppet Collection Chronicle series. What is the article, you ask? Well, it’s simple. It’s a spotlight of numerous Muppet fans with pictures and descriptions of their very favorite piece of Muppety memorabilia. This doesn’t have to be an item that is ridiculously expensive, it just has to be something meaningful and special to you. Here, let me give you an example from my collection:
Palisades Toys Series 5 Gonzo the Great Action Figure
This figure is nothing extraordinary in the sense of rarity or spectacularity (peculiarly not a word) or anything like that… but it is ridiculously special to me. This action figure of Gonzo in his classic purple tuxedo, with Camilla included, holds the biggest place in my heart for being the very first piece of Muppet merchandise I purchased with my own money when I was 14. It was also what kicked off my Muppet fandom oh those many years ago. I can tell you exactly where I bought Gonzo, and exactly how it was the turning point that changed my life into the Muppety wonderment it has become. I take Gonzo with me whenever I travel alone as my personal good luck charm and to remind me of my humble beginnings, no matter where I find myself.
See? Wasn’t that simple and a nice read? That’s seriously all you have to do. Type up a paragraph about Your Most Prized Muppet Possession and take a picture of it, send it to us via email to email@example.com and then we’ll collect them all and post them into one big article of prized Muppet awesome!
So email your stuff and we hope to feature you and your prized Muppet possessions on The Muppet Mindset very soon!
