The History of Janice
Janice has had a stellar career as one of Jim
Henson's Muppets. With an abundance of "like"s, "rully"s *
and "fer sure"s, she peaked in the late '70s and early
'80s with generous success both as a musician and as an actress.
She's still seen from time to time, and her many fans continue
to love her work.
* (Phrase note: It has been revealed by online Muppet pal Kevin Williams that, according to Henson, Janice officially says the word "really" as "rully"---I personally prefer "rilly", like in the old Muppet comics, but I've changed my own texts to "rully" to go with the Henson flow)
** (though we know she was voiced by Matt Vogel in the
Playstation game "Muppet RaceMania", and was manipulated by
Kevin Clash at MuppetFest)
Janice started out puppeteered by a female, but she became
Richard Hunt's character during the second season of "The Muppet Show". It was he who made Janice the groovy gal
whom Muppet fans have come to know and love today. Her personality
really changed and took off when Richard donned her, and her
special phrases and quirks have won her (and Richard) the hearts
of many a Muppet fan.
