Fan (end of the) Week 2018 – Part 1

Jarrod Fairclough – Fan Week began in 2016 as a way to showcase the fandom of The Muppets in a larger way.  In 2016, we had over 40 people send in material.  In 2017, it was almost double that.  This year however there seemed to be a huge downfall, with nowhere near enough material to cover a week, which disappointed us here.  However, rather than cancel Fan Week 2018 entirely and penalise those who did send stuff in, we decided to spend the last 2 days this week celebrating in a reduced way.  Today you’ll see what we had sent to us, and tomorrow Kieran Moore returns with another Top 10 Covers list, as per tradition.

Brad sent in this amazing cartoon of Matt Vogel and Kermit the Frog!

Troy sent us these 2 great little Lips drawing, the first of which harkens back to his hilarious line in The Muppets episode 2, ‘Hostile Makeover’.Lips - Troy

Marc sent in a fairly impressive Kermit the Frog balloon animal!

Our old pal Michael sent in this doodle of the Sesame Street Muppets on a rafting trip.  It’s nice to see Sherlock Hemlock and Bruno the Trashman get an invite!Sesame rafting - Michael

Finally, Christy sent us this cute drawing of Summer Penguin from Muppet Babies.  Summer’s only a new character, but she deserves all the love in the world.Summer - Christy
