As a wee lad I worked as a tea-boy in Jim Henson’s Creature Shop. Recently, I flickrchived a bunch of photos I took from that era and found this photo of an animatronic baby gorilla head that was made for the movie “Buddy.” There are a few other interesting ones to check out in the set.

    Not funny note: Drat! Someone used “flickrchive” three days ago!

    One part obsession with puppets and one part mad skills with a teapot and one part being in Prague at the right time.
