Obscure 80s cartoons: Little Muppet Monsters

I can honestly say I never saw this one but in 1985 CBS expanded on the Muppet Babies cartoon with another half hour segment called Little Muppet Monsters that combined live action puppets and animated segments. Muppets Tug, Boo and Molly are locked in a basement by Scooter and start their own TV show. CBS cancelled after 3 episodes and kept on with Muppet Babies but according to Lost Media Wiki there have been recycled animation bits of this show in Muppet Babies and other puppet segments of the show that never aired have been found online.

Jim’s RedBook

I’m not a huge Jim Henson fan though I do have fond memories of his work in the 80s, love Sesame Street and loved most, if not all of his movies with Brian Froud‘s character designs. Stumbled across the Red Book on henson.com which is a digitized version of the 1965 log Henson kept until 1988 and it’s very neat reading for any fans or those who just appreciate Mr. Henson as an artist. Check it out.
