Summary
A comprehensive biography of the life and accomplishments of the famous puppeteer and creator of the Muppets
Summary
Fans of the Muppets -- or TV history at large -- won't want to miss this compelling and informative behind-the-scenes story of "Muppets" inventor, Jim Henson. Henson began work in television in 1955. Joining forces with artist Jane Nebel, whom he later married, Henson enthusiastically developed the signature puppeteering style that landed him on Sesame Street -- and brought the now-famous Muppet Kermit the Frog and many others to the world. Biographer Brian Jay Jones offers the first complete biography of Henson, detailing his personal life, the nature of his creative genius, his collaborations with Frank Oz and other industry stars. - Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
