I like Mr. Potter from It’s A Wonderful Life cast as the king! This has a certain charm to it!

This is from sometime in the late 60s… I was probably 12 when I traveled with Dad, Mom and my sister Perri to NYC to visit Henson’s studio. What a thrill! I remember a shelf filled with “Rowlf” puppets and Jim let me ‘puppeteer’ one! I actually had my hand in Rowlf! … (that didn’t come out right) Jim Henson was kind and genuine. One of the nicest men I’ve ever met. It’s wonderful to see this again and hear Jim’s voice…
