Jim Henson: Tele-Visionary

Saturday, Apr 16 at 1:00 PM

Location: Redstone Theater

With introduction by Craig Shemin and Silly Willy

Originally presented under the title “Muppets 101,” this revised compilation was initially assembled for and presented by Jim Henson Legacy President Craig Shemin and longtime Muppet head writer Jerry Juhl at BAM’s 2004 “Muppets, Music, and Magic” event. The program is a chronological journey from Jim Henson’s first show, Sam and Friends, to The Muppet Show, featuring material you won’t see anywhere else: early TV appearances, commercials, and more. Plus, this program contains behind-the-scenes footage and clips from the rarely seen pilot for The Muppet Show: “The Muppets: Sex and Violence.” The program runs approximately 75 minutes.

Tickets: $15 / $11 senior and students / $9 youth (ages 3–17) / Free or discounted for MoMI members. Order tickets. Please pick up tickets at the Museum’s admissions desk upon arrival. All seating is general admission. Review safety protocols before your visit.
