Jennifer C. Garlen, Anissa M. Graham
McFarland, Nov 30, 2012 - Performing Arts - 276 pages
Jim Henson was the creative force behind a huge catalog of television series, films, specials, and other productions, even excepting the Muppets. This collection of essays delves into the rest of Henson's body of work, including projects developed during his lifetime and those that represent his legacy. Covered here are Fraggle Rock, The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, The Jim Henson Hour, Dinosaurs, Farscape, and more. Henson's influence on both audiences and later productions remains palpable on screens large and small, as this collection attests.
