Laura makes ASCII art, using MS Notepad. (Since 1998). She is currently exploring adding colour to the plain text to make postcards.

Sesame Street's muppets will always be a part of Jim Henson's legacy. Here are the muppets: Kermit, Miss Piggy, Bert, Ernie, Cookie Monster, Big Bird, The Count and others, in ASCII art.

Did you have a favourite muppet from either Sesame Street or any of the Muppet Shows and movies which came afterwards? Mine was Grover. I've always felt he was taken for granted or not given enough credit. Elmo came along, in a brighter colour, and they seemed to forget all about Grover. It just never seemed fair to me. Like he was passed up for a younger model/ version of himself.

The Jim Henson Company

The muppets were created in 1955, by Jim Henson. Since his death in 1990, Disney has bought the Muppets and they are now known as Disney's The Muppets, officially (as of 2004). Of course, this would mean more to someone collecting muppets than a kid taking a stuffed muppet to bed at night. Still, for the purposes of displaying muppet ASCII art, I thought it should be mentioned in here somewhere.

What is a Muppet?

Muppets can represent humans, animals, monsters, objects, robots, mythical beings or other abstract characters.

The bodies are moulded or carved of foam, then covered with fleece, fur, or other felt-like material. They tend to have a wide mouth and protruding eyes as their main features.

Muppets are different from ventriloquist dummies or puppets because their arms or other features are also mobile and expressive. They perform as if they are independent of the puppeteer, who is usually outside of the camera frame. This staging was an innovation of Jim Henson and his company. Invisible strings move the characters' bodies and mouths, with the voices added later.

      It's a gallery of ASCII art. Just like any other collection of art created in other media and made available for public viewing.

      I never thought of it as a religious experience.
