Jim Henson on how to build puppets, 1969

I loves me some Muppets. I never had the skill to work the hands of any puppet I’ve ever tried to use, though. The best I could do was the sweeping-arm movements. I probably would have loved to see this as a kid.

Funny how some really great puppets can be achieved by skilled puppeteers and little more than a wooden spoon, a cloth and a few rubber bands.

Hat tip to Laughing Squid.
