Muppet Stamps

_viasb40496817_kermitstampap_203300

Coming in March of next year, a series of 11 stamps, 10 with Muppet favorites and one of their creator, Jim Henson.

Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, The Swedish Chef, Bunson and Beaker and Statler and Waldorf, they'll all be there.

Since they first appeared in 1976, long before you were born, they've become a part of the landscape.

At their peak, their show was watched by an estimated 235 million viewers per week in more than 100 countries.

Why, that's more people than visit bookofjoe!

Amazing.

Lots more in the way of fun stamps coming next year from the U.S. Postal Service: look for Mickey Mouse and other Disney characters, Greta Garbo, Henry Fonda, and many more.

What I want to know is, why did I have to go to the BBC to find out about this?

and of course, no "mad bomber" character - he was the only muppet to be discontinued for political correctness' sake.
