This week, the annual Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony was held and, of course, Sesame Street won quite a few of them! In fact, Sesame was tied for the most trophies won this year!

  • Outstanding Achievement in Multiple Camera Editing
  • Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing – Live Action 
  • Outstanding Achievement in Sound Editing – Live Action

D23, the official Disney fan club, posted a great article all about Rowlf the Dog last Thursday and somehow we missed it until this week. The article covers quite a few fun facts about Rowlf, and gives lots of credit to Jim Henson, The Jimmy Dean Show, and lots more. It’s really a wonderful look at Muppet history, which is always exciting to see from Disney. It’s also quite nice to see Rowlf get some more love.

Remember a few months ago when those awesome photos of Ricky Gervais, Constantine, and Matt Vogel started making the rounds? Well, Brad Trent, the hugely talented photographer who shot the photos, recently posted some behind the scenes shots from the awesome photo shoot. Check out the full article for all of them, but below are five our favorites from the post.

Earlier this week, Ryan Dosier (hey, that’s me!) held an impromptu live-tweet of a few episodes of Season 1 of The Muppet Show on The Muppet Mindset’s Twitter account (@MuppetMindset). It was a lot of fun and a lot of people seemed to enjoy it, so we’re going to do it again–and invite you to join us! On Monday, June 30 at 7:30pm Central Time/5:30pm PST, I’ll be watching The Muppet Show Episodes 201 and 202 (the first two episodes of Season 2) and live tweeting from @MuppetMindset. Join us in the watching, join us in the tweeting, join us in the fun! We hope to see you then, Muppet fans!
