It’s the season finale of The MuppetCast, and boy do we go out with a bang! Capping off the 2010-2011 season is a spectacular giveaway of an authentic “The Muppets” movie poster, direct from Disney’s Muppet Studios! One lucky winner will hear their name announced before the show is over.
If you weren’t the winner this time, you still have one more chance to win this poster (I have two to give away). If you come to Dayton Disneyana on June 25 and enter to win The MuppetCast’s special drawing that day, you just might hold the winning ticket and take it home!
Wanna see what you’ll look like as a Whatnot? Muppet fan artist Dave Hulteen is ready to oblige! Check out Dave’s “Puppetize Yourself” website today.

Brian Kolm (owner of AtomicBearPress.com) heard The MuppetCast’s rebroadcast of the out-of-print soundtrack LP of “The Muppet Musicians of Bremen” and recognized the voice of actress Carol Channing. He remembers Channing’s similar performance on a record of “Archy and Mehitabel“, based on the stories of Don Marquis.
