Jim Henson's Creature Shop supplied performers and puppets (not fully practical ones necessarily, and the article says sometimes the puppeteer's hands were used) to provide a guide or sight line for the actor playing Mowgli. Close to what happened with Looney Tunes: Back in Action (except those puppets were too big so they ultimately weren't used for even that). There was never any intention for the Creature Shop to supply on-screen characters or effects (or no indication of it anyway).
Worth noting on Kipling but not sure it should be in the Creature Shop filmography, or if we do, we'd need to clarify (i.e. "puppet stand-ins, removed in digital" or something, because otherwise it implies actual characters in the movie). Maybe wait to see if the Creature Shop gets screen credit.
Oh, good! Reverse Google Image Search led to this larger photo, too. Looks like Allan Trautman maybe. I like the eyes in the background. I probably won't be seeing this in theatres, but I'll check out the credits on home video in a couple months.
Hey Scott! Awesome to have those design notes from the Center of Puppetry Arts exhibit! One minor thing, though; This note on the first Pumpkin Anything Muppet, claiming that it was built in 1970, contradicts with the actual first appearance of a Pumpkin AM (which was 1969, in the first episode). Should the text be revised to match what we have?
Thanks, I'm not entirely happy with the photos I took though. I'm still learning how to use the camera, and the glass/lighting combo in that space makes it very difficult to get a shot of anything without glare.
Can you please delete those two pages? A user just created a page and just wrote that it was an episode in both pages without any categories or any information at all about the episode. It is OBVIOUS that it is an episode but can you take a look at those two pages and delete them?
Well, I finally found where most of the CTW archive scans were stored (on a back-up of a back-up), and here's a bio of Sara Compton. (I also found and added a pic to her page).
No real personal background, just career summary, but useful and explains why I wasn't finding her while locating scores of other people. Because her background wasn't in broadcasting or theater, but advertising. No agency name listed, so that makes it a little tougher, but at least we know which direction to look. We also have U of MO as a lead.
I know, right? There's a pretty good chance there are three more "lost" sketches. STS-2 was meant to go for 5 days, but the mission was cut short. These are the two that NASA broadcast to the shuttle, but Jerry Juhl wrote 5 scripts. It's very likely the other 3 were sent to NASA, but never played.
It is not known for certain if it has been unaired, so it is unknown if it has been unaired or not. However I do recall watching it in TV once but I'm not sure if it was true, since I know Muppet Wiki doesn't rely on personal memories. Eventually, somebody will probably tell us for sure if it has been aired or not. It has probably been aired.
Oh Scott, where's Tony when you need him? Tony has been inactive lately and only comes from time to time. I know asking for episode guides is the wrong thing to do but I wouldn't list the Angola segment in the unaired segments.
