This is a great picture. Henson and his muppets deserve a series of their own.

Thanks for the great work, again.

Um, I though that they already had at least one, from 1976 to 1981.


I kid. And I couldn't agree more about a series on Henson. . . .

Terrific photo. Even as we look at a shot of Jim Henson facing his own arm encased in a decorated felt sleeve, we see instead a picture of him regarding a friend. Where, the existential question might go, does one end and the other begin?

I am reminded of an old buddy of mine, Dwight Dunaway, from my San Diego days of ‘76-’78 who counted among his talents as a graphic artist and magician those of a puppeteer as well. I remember often his ability (if not outright tendency) to conduct conversations with me in tandem with his puppet and how common it was for the puppet to say or do something that seemed to surprise us both. A Suitable Case for Treatment, perhaps, but a friend who is sorely missed.
