Under The Puppet

Sep 24, 2022 - 

Sam & Friends - The Story of Jim Henson’s First Television Show is a brand new book by Craig Shemin that explores, in depth, the history of Sam & Friends, the first TV Show that Jim and Jane Henson created for local television in Washington DC. I talk to Craig Shemin about the book and the history of Sam & Friends as well as his role as President of The Jim Henson Legacy, his work writing for The Jim Henson Company and even his puppetry career on this episode of Under The Puppet.
