Hip Hop Hooray! I am pleased to announce that my interview with Bonnie Erickson, designer of some of the original Muppets, is featured on the Jim Henson Legacy website. Given my life-long love of the Muppets and huge admiration of Henson and his crew, this is like being picked up by the mothership.

Here's some basic info about The JH Legacy, taken straight from their website:

Established in 1993, The Jim Henson Legacy was created by family and friends in response to the extraordinary interest in the life and work of Jim Henson. The organization is dedicated to preserving and perpetuating Jim Henson’s contributions to the worlds of puppetry, television, motion pictures, special effects and media technology.

By making Jim’s creative body of work available to the public through presentations and exhibits, the Legacy will share the power of his art, his imagination and his positive view of life with generations to come.
