The Vision of Jim Henson

Boo, get off the stage!5rating.gif (3632 bytes)

Brian Knatchbull (5-3-98) - Well the special I mentioned for all Canadian Muppet fans to watch on BRAVO here in Canada was on this morning and it was a great behind-the-scenes half hour.

The program called "National Arts" is a production of Northern Virginia Public Television, WNVT-TV Falls Church, Va. It was produced in 1997 and it was about the exhibit titled 'The Muppets Take Maryland -Vision of Jim Henson' at the University of Maryland which Jim Henson was an alumni of. It also contained the look of another exhibit there from the Public Television archives that had a lot of interesting things on Jim's involvement with Sesame Street. The special contained too many things to list here like many storyboards and artwork by Jim, many of the creatures from Jim Henson's Creature Shop and how they were performed and also contained nice interviews with Jane Henson, Cheryl Henson and Larry Grossman the "Muppet Show" composer who also worked with Jim on Muppet*Vision 3D. I hope those that were able to see it could and hopefully those in the U.S. will see it pop up sometime on your airwaves. It is a must have for your Muppet collection.

Nancy Eilers-Hughes (5-3-98) - This special aired on the US Bravo channel several months ago. I hope it will repeat again sometime for other US viewers. It was pretty interesting, but a lot of time was spent interviewing the folks who worked on the "Vision of Jim Henson" exhibit, so it wasn't really intensively Jim Henson oriented. The interviews with Jane and Cheryl Henson were probably the highlight to me, and the footage of the exhibit was interesting.
