Jim Henson on Making Muppets (1969)


In this video from 1969, Jim Henson and the Muppeteers show kids how to make puppets from simple things like socks. This was all pre-Sesame street and it offers a glimpse of the genius we would come to associate with Henson and the Muppets. My favorite moment happens right at the start when Rowlf pops up.
