Trivia that mentions this person:
The Great Muppet Caper [1981]
  • The girl in the park who thinks Kermit is a bear is Christine Nelson, daughter of Muppeteer Jerry Nelson (with whom she appears in the scene). Christine suffered from cystic fibrosis throughout her short life, and finally succumbed to the disease in 1982, one year after the film debuted.
    It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie [2002]
  • Jerry Nelson was sick during the production of this film so his characters were either dubbed later (Robin, Statler, Pops) or performed by another puppeteer (Bill Barretta performs Lew Zealand).
  • Steve Whitmire, who was beginning to perform Statler around this time, puppeteered him while his current performer, Jerry Nelson, was out sick. Nelson later looped Statler's lines, but one of them ("Historical landmark!") remained unlooped, and therefore, on that line, Whitmire's voice, not Nelson's, is heard in the final cut.
