Tales of Nerdery 1(The Dark Crystal)

I LOVED the original Dark Crystal movie as a kid. It came out in 1982 when I was 6 years old. I've seen that movie Sooooo Many times I've lost count. I can't explain how much of a Muppets fan I was as a child. I had a Kermit the Frog puppet that ate flies. I had a Grover puppet, I had Ernie and Bert puppets. I loved Jim Henson. I watched every episode of Sesame Street, The Muppets, all the Muppet movies, The Jim Henson Hour (Special Shout out to the Story Teller series on that show which helped to foster a love of Fantasy.) I even watched Fraggle Rock! I had (gone now) a set of Muppet drinking glasses from one of the fast food chains. I had posters and stickers. I had a Muppet Lunch box. But, of all of those Muppet toys and collectables I loved my VHS of The Dark Crystal the best. Alas I no longer have that tape it was eaten by a VCR decades ago due to overuse. I will always remember watching that movie as a kid. I saw it so many damn times. Conan the Barbarian was released that same year. I never had a chance. Two years later in 1984 my dad bought me Dungeons and Dragons Basic Edition and I became a gamer but that's several other Tales of Nerdery.
