Who doesn’t love the Muppets? These two were my dad’s favorites (I think Animal is my favorite, too) and the Muppets are just plain fun to draw anyway. We miss you, Jim Henson! Drew this one night playing around with some of my kids’ magic markers and crayons. We had been talking about the muppets earlier in the night - and there you have it - muppet sketch as a result.
It’s my blog and if I say we’re gonna watch Gene Barretta do a folksy rendition of the Powerpuff Girls theme song, then we’re gonna watch Bill’s brother do a folksy rendition of the Powerpuf Girls theme song!

"The Muppets Studio asked me to meet with Jerry and talk about his characters… It was very cool being in the room for that—kind of like a master class in character. He talked about Floyd’s roots and his take on The Electric Mayhem along with some insight about Robin and some of his other characters. He talked about The Muppet Show days and the genesis of [his] characters. It think it was handled in the right way, since Jerry wasn’t performing those characters anymore, but Muppets wanted to start using them again with consistent performers."
