Halfway Down the Stairs

Halfway Down the Stairs

If you are a Muppet fan, you probably already know the world lost an incredibly talented, creative man Thursday night. Jerry Nelson passed away at the age of 78.

If his name doesn’t sound familiar, perhaps his characters do. He performed many, many, characters, including Count Von Count, The Amazing Mumford (“A la peanut butter sandwiches!”) and the original Snuffy on “Sesame Street,” Gobo Fraggle, Pa Gorg, and Marjorie the trash heap on “Fraggle Rock,” and Floyd Pepper, Lew Zealand, and Robin on “The Muppet Show,” as well as voice-overs such as “Pigs in Space!” and the announcer voice in Disney’s “The Muppets.”
