Blog devoted to merchandise featuring Jim Henson's Muppets. The name is a reference to the former "Muppet Stuff" stores that operated from 1980-1993. Our mission, to paraphrase theirs, is "Muppet Stuff – A blog with nothing but!”

RIP Morley Safer!
CBS news legend, Morley Safer has died at age 84. He was the longest-serving correspondent in 60 Minutes' history - joining the show in 1970.
9 years later, Safer went behind the scenes of The Muppet Show for 60 Minutes. The piece was re-aired in 1990 after Jim Henson's death.
He filed his last piece (number 919!) for 60 Minutes in March, and his retirement was just announced last week. Safer said, "It's been a wonderful run, but the time has come to say goodbye to all of my friends at CBS and the dozens of people who kept me on the air."

His contribution to journalism will be greatly missed.
