The long-lost animation of Jim Henson [video]
Though best known for his Muppetry, Jim Henson’s creative exploration extended far beyond felt and glue.
In the mid-1960s, Henson wrote the script and storyboard for a stop-motion animation piece called “Alexander the Grape” in which he used simple backgrounds and characters cut from construction paper to tell the tale of the little grape with big dreams.
Although the animation was never finished, the Jim Henson Company Archives put together the work that had been done with storyboard shots to fill in the blank to give Henson’s fans “…a delightful peak into Jim’s creative process and his work from those early years.”
