My name is Jake Thompson and I am 10 years old. I was first introduced to The Muppets when I was 2. My mom and dad gave me season 1 of the Muppet Show and it was all I watched. I have home videos of me going around the house singing along with guest stars Roger Miller, and Ethel Merman. I watched it so much that I eventually had to buy another set.
Over the past 8 years I have collected so much Muppet collectables that when we moved we had to buy a house with an extra room in it for all of my stuff. You can also look up some Muppet blogs I did on YouTube. My most recent Halloween costume was Jim Henson. I painted on a beard, dressed like Jim and had my Muppet Whatnot. I also collect things from projects that Jim or any other Muppet performer has worked on.
My dream is to someday meet Steve Whitmire, Peter Linz and all the rest of the gang.
My future plans when I grow up is to work as a puppeteer with Sesame Street, The Muppets and any other projects that may be going by then. Watch out for my name because you never know who I will be performing in the future.
