News Extra Contents launching in late Spring


Here's the full description of the plans for, as posted by webmasters Michael Dixon and Mar Quinn:


Coming in Late Spring is -- a fully authorised Muppet and Jim Henson collectibles and resource website. is set to be the only dedicated collectibles and Muppet resource site on the net and the only fan-based site to be fully Authorised and approved by the Jim Henson Company who actually own the domain name.


   Covering collectibles and Muppet Stuff from the early days of Sam and Friends to the latest items that haven't even been released yet will be a place where Muppet collectors and just interested fans can find all the information they will need to help them with their collections. However we won't only be covering collectibles, there will be episode guides to many of the major series and specials, interview guides and all sorts of things that Muppet Fans have been looking for, for many years. Kind of like a Muppet Encyclopaedia.


   We are not attempting to take over from any current fan site and fully support everyone that currently adds to the Muppet fan world, however we felt that for a long time there has been a void in the websites that were available and aims to fill that void. Using what is thought to be the largest collection of Muppet Merchandise in the world as a basis and with the full support of the Jim Henson Company, looks set to be the most comprehensive Muppet collectibles and resource site anywhere ever.


   We have been working on the site now for many months and all permission and agreement contracts were signed with the Jim Henson Company at their Studios in LA in December.


   We are both very excited about and we are sure once it debuts you will be too.
