“Jim Henson’s The Storyteller” – “Behind the Scenes”

A big thanks to Museum of the Moving Image for that great photo from Jim Henson’s Storyteller up top. The Henson Company channel over on you YouTube has posted a small behind the scenes video on the background for the TV series! With today being what would have been Jim Henson’s 75th Birthday…and to be honest the Storyteller is one of my favorite of the Henson projects, it just seemed a great time to post this.

Jim Henson’s The Storyteller By Mike Maihack

Of the many shows that Jim Henson produced for television my hands down favorite was The Storyteller.

So when I heard that Archaia was releasing not only an original tale from Jim Henson entitled the Tale of Sand but that they were going to publish a graphic novel for Jim Henson’s The Storyteller…I was ecstatic with the news. Thanks to Mike Maihack over at deviantART who is working on said upcoming graphic novel we have a wonderful illustration of the Storyteller and his dog, just in time for what would have been Jim Henson’s 75th Birthday!
