This week I’m joined by Muppeteer Bill Barretta! Bill and I discuss his numerous Muppet characters, his training as an actor (and how that prepared him for his eventual entrance in the Muppet world), and some of his favorite Muppet moments. Many thanks to Gene as well.

The MuppetCast is sponsored by Swanson PC and Bell, Book & Comic. Life should be more Fun!

I had a great time at Dayton Disneyana this weekend. Many thanks to everyone at the “Plane Crazy” chapter for making room for me, and for all the work they did bringing the one & only Paige O’Hara to the convention. See you next year!

Here are a few YouTube videos featuring Bill’s characters:

Gene and Bill as “The Fiama Brothers”
