MUPPET CREATORS: JIM HENSON and JERRY JUHL
Rider to a 1970 contract signed by Jim Henson and longtime writer Jerry Juhl. Juhl joined Henson in 1955 and won two Emmys for his writing on Sesame Street and The Muppet Show.
Contract signed: "Jim Henson" for Jim Henson Associates, Inc..1p, 8½x11. No place, circa 1970. Countersigned: "Jerry Juhl" as Writer. Rider to Agreement between Writer Jerry Juhl and Henson Associates, Inc., dated December 29, 1970, regarding payment for a third run in Canada. In 1969, Jim Henson was approached to use his Muppets for the revolutionary educational show, Sesame Street. The Muppet Show (1976-1981) was the most popular first-run syndicated series in television history, reaching hundreds of millions of viewers in more than 100 countries. In addition to starring on Sesame Street (now in its fifth decade on television) and The Muppet Show, the Muppets have also appeared in other shows including Muppets Tonight and Fraggle Rock, and in feature films. Henson died suddenly in 1990 at the age of 53 of a bacterial infection. JERRY JUHL (1938-2005) was a long-time collaborator with Muppet inventor Jim Henson. He first joined Henson on Sam and Friends (1955-1961), the first TV series to feature the Muppets (including Kermit the Frog), as a writer and muppeteer. Juhl was mainly a writer for Henson's projects, including head writer duties on The Muppet Show (1976-1981) for most of its run and co-writer of many Muppet movies including the very first titled, appropriately enough, The Muppet Movie (1979). Juhl also wrote a number of episodes for Fraggle Rock (1983-1987). He shared two Emmy wins for his writing on Sesame Street (1970) and The Muppet Show (1981). The New York Times' obituary for Juhl quotes Henson's son Brian as saying. "When people say about the Muppets, 'It's a gentle soul with a naughty sense of humor,' Jerry was just as responsible for that as my dad." Staple holes at top. Horizontal fold crosses both all three "J"s in signatures. Otherwise, fine condition.
