  • In 2004, Nelson announced he would be moving away from performing his classic Muppet characters, citing health reasons. However, he continued to voice his characters on Sesame Street. In 2005, he was one of the narrators on the audiobook version of It's Not Easy Bein' Green, displaying his vocal versatility by reciting most of the quotes from Muppet characters, including Dr. Teeth and the Doozers. In late 2009, Nelson released his album Truro Daydreams. __TOC__
  • Jerry Nelson's characters on The Muppet Show are, Crazy Harry, Floyd Pepper, Robin the Frog, (the nephew of Jim Henson's Kermit the Frog), Pops, Lew Zealand, Emily Bear (mother of Frank Oz's Fozzie Bear), Camilla the Chicken, & several others. It was he who originated the role of Statler to Jim Henson's Waldorf, but he soon passed it on to his very good friend Richard Hunt, with whom he was paired on several occasions. Then, after Hunt sadly passed away, Jerry became the new Statler.

He is best know for such characters as Count von Count and Herry Monster on Sesame Street; Floyd Pepper and Robin the Frog on The Muppet Show; and Gobo Fraggle and Pa Gorg on Fraggle Rock.

  • On Sesame Street, Nelson's longest-running character was Count von Count, the counting vampire who took delight in counting anything he could. Nelson did the voice and puppetry for the Count from 1971 until 2004, and continued to provide the Count's voice until his death. On Fraggle Rock, he performed Gobo Fraggle, Pa Gorg, and Marjory the Trash Heap. Frank Oz did not perform on Fraggle Rock, and Jim Henson and Richard Hunt limited their time on the show, so they performed supporting characters. For this reason, Nelson was asked to perform Gobo, the central role on the show.

abstract
  • Jerry Nelson (July 10, 1934 - August 23, 2012) was an American puppeteer, singer, and musician who started his career working for Bill Baird. Throughout the 1960s, he worked on-and-off with Jim Henson before officially joining Henson's company full-time in 1970, becoming one of the principal Muppet performers. He performed many Muppet characters over the years, including Floyd Pepper, Robin the Frog, Uncle Deadly, Crazy Harry, Camilla, Dr. Julius Strangepork, Thog, Droop, Lew Zealand, J. P. Grosse, Fleet Scribbler, Statler, Pops, T.R. the Rooster, Featherstone, Slim Wilson, Baskerville the Hound, Mad Monty, Blind Pew and countless others. His other Henson credits include Sesame Street (where he had performed Count von Count, Herry Monster, The Amazing Mumford, Mr. Johnson, Biff and more) and Fraggle Rock (where he performed Gobo Fraggle, Pa Gorg, Marjory the Trash Heap, the Architect Doozer, and others). In 2004, Nelson announced that he would be moving away from performing his classic Muppet characters, citing health reasons. However, he continued to provide the voices of his Sesame Street characters, including Count von Count, with Matt Vogel performing the puppetry of said characters until Nelson's passing. In late 2009, Nelson released his debut album, Truro Daydreams. In 2011, Nelson returned to the Muppets to provide the voice of the announcer in The Muppets.

Najbardziej rozpoznawalną rolą lalkarza jest Hrabia Liczyhrabia (ang. Count von Count) z Ulicy Sezamkowej, któremu głosu podkładał aż przez 40 lat (od 1972 do 2012 roku). Oprócz niego, jego głosem mówiły też inne postacie z programu: Sherlock Hemlock, The Amazing Mumford, Włochacz i pan Johnson. W The Muppet Show Nelson animował: Floyda Peppera, doktora Juliusza Dziwnokotleckiego (ang. Dr. Julius Strangepork), Lew Zealanda, kurę Gonza - Camillę, speca od wybuchów Crazy Harry'ego i siostrzeńca Kermita, Robina. Ponadto podkładał głosu Generałowi Równoległemu do kreskówki wytwórni Cartoon Network Owca w Wielkim Mieście. W grudniu 2009 roku wydał album Truro Daydreams, w której śpiewał piosenki razem z innymi lalkarzami. Zmarł 23 sierpnia 2012 roku po komplikacjach z rakiem prostaty. Jego zwłoki zostały skremowane. Film Muppety: Poza prawem został zadedykowany jego pamięci oraz pamięci Jane Henson (ona też zmarła w wieku 78 lat). Nelson miał córkę Christine z pierwszego małżeństwa, która grała rolę cameo w filmie Muppety na tropie. Jednak zmarła w 1982 roku z powodu mukowiscydozy.

  • On Sesame Street, Nelson's longest-running character was Count von Count, the counting vampire who took delight in counting anything he could. Nelson did the voice and puppetry for the Count from 1971 until 2004, and continued to provide the Count's voice until his death. Nelson was the first puppeteer to perform Mr. Snuffleupagus, keeping the role from 1971 to 1978. Most sources (including Sesame Street Unpaved[citation needed] and Sesame Street: A Celebration - 40 Years of Life on the Street[citation needed]) state that back problems caused by the physical stress of the performance forced him to bow out, but in a 2009 interview Jerry Nelson gave a different explanation for giving up the role: "I was not loathe to give that character up. But the reasons for giving it up were because at that time we were doing The Muppet Show and he was a real part of the show, and they needed his presence. So they asked if I’d mind giving it up.". He also performed many characters on The Muppet Show, including Sgt. Floyd Pepper (the bassist of the Electric Mayhem band), Pigs in Space star Dr. Julius Strangepork, the boomerang fish-throwing Lew Zealand, Kermit the Frog's nephew Robin the Frog, Gonzo's girlfriend Camilla the Chicken, and the Phantom of the Muppet Show, Uncle Deadly. Nelson's Muppets on The Muppet Show were all only supporting roles, but they did occasionally play a central role in an episode's plot. Less prominent characters on the show include sportscaster Lewis Kazagger, Pops the doorman, gossip columnist Fleet Scribbler, and Scooter's uncle J.P. Grosse who owned the theatre. He performed Statler in the pilot episodes, but dropped the role when he could not perform full-time on the first season. He was a full-time performer for the rest of the show's run. Nelson was selected to play Statler after Richard Hunt's passing. He originated the role of Fozzie Bear's mother in Series 2 of the Muppet Show and reprised the role over the years in such things as the special A Muppet Family Christmas, and The Muppets at Walt Disney World. Nelson performed the puppet and voice of Emmet in Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas, a 1-hour special that originally aired on HBO. He later performed the signature song from that show, "When the River Meets the Sea," as Robin in a duet with John Denver for a Muppet Christmas special. That version of the song gets frequent radio airplay during the Christmas season (although the song is not seasonal). On Fraggle Rock, he performed Gobo Fraggle, Pa Gorg, and Marjory the Trash Heap. Frank Oz did not perform on Fraggle Rock, and Jim Henson and Richard Hunt limited their time on the show, so they performed supporting characters. For this reason, Nelson was asked to perform Gobo, the central role on the show. Nelson's characters were often singers or musicians. He performed the lead vocals for many songs as Floyd of the Electric Mayhem, Little Jerry of Little Jerry and the Monotones, Slim Wilson of Lubbock Lou and his Jughuggers, and a number of Anything Muppet bands. Most of his main characters in all three shows sang songs at one time or another. He reprised the role of the announcer in The Muppets. His final performance as the said announcer was part of the Jim Henson's Musical World concert at Carnegie Hall. Nelson also performed the character voice of General Public in the Cartoon Network animated series Sheep in the Big City. In December 2009, Nelson, who summered in Truro, Massachusetts on Cape Cod, released Truro Daydreams, an album of original songs.
