“I'm a professional! I've had three performances!" - Fozzie Bear
I asked Bruce when he started working for the Muppets. He said, “Jim Henson came west for the TV show Dinosaurs. I auditioned and got the part, and that’s when I got my career," Bruce told me, "I’ve been blessed to be able to about a movie every year sense I joined the Muppets”

The kids' eyes were glued to Bruce, and you could see their personal little light bulbs of intrigue lighting up left and right. Bruce and his puppets were all they could talk about for the rest of the day. When I got the chance to talk with him one-on-one, he told me this was his first-ever interaction with TADW kids and it was very fun. “My sister in law did TADW a long time ago so I knew what it was.”
He also said he's fascinated in the new interest among young people and puppets. “They really love working with puppets, and I’m like, good for them!”
So thank you Bruce for coming to TADW! Who knows? He might have awakened the interest of the next Jim Henson.
