Back in 2012, I drew this old tribute for Jerry Nelson, URL/raggyrabbit94.deviantart.com/a…
now that I've gotten better at drawing in digital, I wanted to draw a new bigger better remake with more characters.
So here are the characters of late Muppeteer Jerry Nelson (July 10, 1934 - August 23, 2012)
In 1970, he joined the Jim henson company, known for playing Count Von Count in Sesame street, the Amazing Mumford, Sherlock Hemlock, Harry Monster, Two headed monster left (Richard Hunt was the Right), Mr Johnson and he temporary played Snuffy (he stopped after the character was to painful to perform)
In the Muppet show he played Floyde Pepper, Robin the Frog, Lew Zealand, Ma Bear and Crazy Harry. He took over as Statler after Richard Hunt.
In Fraggle Rock he played Gobo fraggle, Marjory the trash heap, Pa Gorg, Feeny fraggle, Fish Face Fraggle, Uncle Gobo and Archietect Doozer.
In Secret lives of Toys he played Baltazar the bear.
In the Muppet Christmas Carol he played the Ghost of Christmas present and in Muppet Treasure Island he played Blind Pew and Mad Monty (he also made a cameo as a butler.)
In the Muppets (2011) he reprised the role as announcer for the Muppet telethon. He passed on August 23 2012.
We miss you Jerry...
