My apologies to those of you who entered last week's contest for those two copies of "Jim Henson's Designs & Doodles: A Muppet Sketchbook" and have since been patiently waiting to learn who won. But what with Friday's not-all-that-surprising announcement that Rich Ross would be exiting Walt Disney Studios effective immediately ... Well, I had to put last week's Why For column on hold while I went off and chased that story.

And rather than make you all wait 'til JHM's next Why For column gets posted (which might be this Friday, but more likely will be next Friday) for the results of last week's contest to be revealed , I thought that I'd just share that info now.

So the two winners of this week's "Muppet Sketchbook"  contest were Garret Van Dam and Richard Dardano. Congrats for getting that trio of early-Jim-Henson-history-related trivia questions correct ...

1) What was the name of the TV series that Jim produced for WRC-TV? Sam and Friends

2) Name the coffee company that Henson produced commercials for. Wilkins Coffee

2) Which Muppet character was a regular on "The Jimmy Dean Show?" Rowlf the Dog

... and if you can please me your mailing addresses, Garret and Richard, I'll put those books in the mail later this week.

Now for the 50+ other JHM readers who entered last week's JHM trivia contest and didn't win ... Not to worry. We've got another contest starting up right now. One that (I'm hoping) will appeal to all you Disney Junior fans out there.

I've got three "Jake and the Never Land Pirates" prizes to give away this time. To be specific, I've got two  limited edition Jake figurines (which the nice folks at Disney Consumer Products gifted Nancy and I when we attended the Disney Junior preview event at the American International Toy Fair in NYC last February) as well as a copy of that "Jake & the Never Land Pirates: Peter Pan Returns" DVD  which Walt Disney Studio Home Entertainment released earlier this month.

And given the prizes that JHM is offering this time around, I think that a pirate-themed trivia contest is in order. So if you'd like to play, please send along answers to the following three questions ...

1) What was the name of the first Disney comic book that Carl Barks contributed artwork on?

2) Name the piratical character that Robert Newton played in Walt Disney Production's 1950 live-action release.

3) Peter Ustinov played the title role in what Robert Stevenson special effects comedy from 1968?

... to [email protected] by 12 midnight ET on Thursday, May 3rd. The three winners (who will be randomly selected from the correct entries that come in over the next eight days) will be announced as part of next Friday's Why For column.

So -- again -- congratulations to Garret & Richard. And good luck to those of you who will be entering JHM's third trivia contest.
