  • Jerry Nelson is my favorite muppet performer of all time!

    Jerry has a great vocal range providing voices for many of my favorite characters, like Floyd, Uncle Deadly, crazy harry, and the Count. He has a great ability to provide so many unique voices for so many different charcters. He just brings believable personality to all his characters. The fact he can pull off some amazing vocal abilities, such as singing at incresing tempo (like in the Ruth Buzzi episode when the electric mayhem was performing Sunny), is amazing. Its a shame he is retired and not going to do his Muppet Show voices (he still is doing his sesame street voices though)moreless
