Oh Piggy how I wanted to be you!
Great news for Muppet’s fan’s worldwide, the Muppets are finding a permanent home in New York City. New York’s Museum of Moving Image, is getting a fat donation.
By fat I mean Piggy, Kermit, some of Sesame street and some very happy little Fraggles, who no longer need to worry about their home.
According to the lovely people at AP/Yahoo;
Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Bert and Ernie of “Sesame Street” fame, the stars of “Fraggle Rock” and other puppets, costumes and items from throughout Muppet’s creator Jim Henson’s career have been donated
What is even cooler is over 400 items and 25 years worth of Muppet’s are being handed over to the museum. How epic is that?!
Unfortunately the sad part? We have to wait a year.
The exhibit is to open next year at the museum in the Long Island City neighborhood, across the East River from midtown Manhattan. The city is chipping in $2.75 million toward the $5 million cost for a project it sees as furthering its goal of persuading more tourists to venture beyond Manhattan.
I guess I know when to schedule my visit to the East Coast. See you there.
