Blast from the Past: Jim Henson & Borgel

January 24, 2016

Did you know that the Jim Henson Company had a plan to adapt Borgel into a Muppetish production? It’s true, at least according to Muppet Wiki.

More interestingly, there are a series of production paintings made for the project by Wayne White. You can find them here (first 4 out of 19).
