Jerry Nelson (July 10, 1934 - August 23, 2012) started his puppeteering career working for Bil Baird. Throughout the '60s, he worked on-and-off with Jim Henson. In 1970, he joined the company and began working regularly on Sesame Street. Since then, Nelson has performed as a principal puppeteer in numerous Muppet productions including the Muppet movies, The Muppet Show, Fraggle Rock, and various TV specials. 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.

Jolly Tour Dinosaur Christmas. The home video version of Barney's Night Before Christmas on September 28, 1999 because this program released December 4, 1999. In it, COLD OPEN with Clover featuring previews of The Muppet Movie 1999 VHS on June 22 1979 rated G and spelled out the S-W-I-N-G-S because Diasia's Mom gave her a push so remember to hold two hands. Muppets From Space coming July 14, The First Snow of Winter coming this Fall, Baby Geniuses, The Wind In The Willows, Bear In The Big Blue House from Jim Henson Television, The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss from Jim Henson Television, The Great Muppet Caper, and The Muppets Take Manhattan. Tamantha reads this title card in voiceover right after The Barney Theme Song. Simply after "Winter's Wonderful" swimmingly "Elmo's World Up and Down." (EKA: Episode 4080) After this scene where Hannah's house transformed to Santa's house was finding their dog Lucy. (EKA: Episode 3884) Video: Computer Caper (2002) Pledge Break with Alpha Baa Baa Twinkle Duck. "Merry Christmas! Alpha Baa Baa Twinkle Duck here. Time to have their pledge break. Ha, not that kind of break. That means, time to stop the show a little while. And when you come back, there will be Bing Crosby singing this version from 1962 of "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow", Caroler #3 telling Barney to play Gene Autry singing "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer", this Christmas waltz "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year" words by Edward Pola and George Wyle sung by Andy Williams, and then after that, Ms. Allison from Summit will list previews of The Muppets Take Manhattan right after the last song to hold hands and sing "I Love You". Don't go away, 'cause the program will be right back." Clover spelled Diasia's swings with Tamantha while the song "Joy To The World" plays. "S", Samantha, "W", Wilbur, "I", Ingrid, "N", Nick, "G", Gerald, "S", Sally. After "We Wish You A Merry Christmas", he went to visit Luna with Alpha Baa Baa Twinkle Duck because The Goodbye Song used a different recording with BJ and Tiptie. So after the last song "I Love You", Ms. Allison from Summit lists previews of The Muppets Take Manhattan on July 13 1984 and spelled Diasia's "S-W-I-N-G-S" again just like Clover did simply nighttime music plays. Muppets From Space coming July 14, The First Snow of Winter coming this Fall, Baby Geniuses, The Wind In The Willows, Bear In The Big Blue House from Jim Henson Television, The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss from Jim Henson Television, The Great Muppet Caper, and The Muppet Movie. The end credits are pretty long. That have "One Light One Sun" and "Disneyland Fun" there.
