I just now found out that Jerry Nelson, longtime puppeteer for the Muppets, passed away on August 23rd at the age of 78.
He performed the voices of many characters, including Robin the Frog, Floyd Pepper (of Electric Mayhem), Lew Zealand, Camilla the Chicken, the Count on Sesame Street, and Gobo Fraggle, Pa Gorg and Marjorie the Trash Heap on Fraggle Rock (my all-time favorite TV show).
Farewell, Jerry Nelson. You will be greatly missed, but your legacy will live on in the life you gave to so many wonderful characters.
