I wasn't sure where to put this, it would have qualified for puppetry news but since it's Henson related, there was no other place to put it. Anyway, check this out. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wimzie's_House#Legal_troubles If anyone remembers this show, it was this Canadian puppet show that was on PBS in the 90s or at least I remember seeing it on PBS in the 90s. Then I found this, The Jim Henson Company and Sesame Workshop went after the show due to "THE STYLE OF PUPPETRY?" I don't mean to sound sarcastic or rude in anyway but, I didn't think any company in general owned the right to television / film style puppetry, even though JHC started it development. Robert Clampett in my opinion started it with Bennie and Cecil and Jim just developed it to the next level to be made for the medium. In my opinion, that's like The Walt Disney Company suing the other animation studios over cartoons with sound. But I don't like to blame JHC or jump to concludions, it might have been a rumor. Because something like this is so unheard of in the JHC's history. And of course for the record, JHC is dear to my heart like everyone here so please don't take my opinions the wrong way. I just think this article is quite ridiculous and unbelievable, it's got to be an internet rumor. "Like there's actually a country called Turkey" lol (couldn't resist) Anyway, for the record it does also state there was some confusion with the character design so perhaps that might have been a problem maybe because a lot of the characters look Fraggle Rockish / Muppet Show whatnot, then again I've seen humanoid characters in Kevin Carlson's Timmy the Tooth / PuppetGreetings.com (which no longer exists) and I never heard of anything crazy. Again, I don't want to jump to conclusions, that's why I felt that perhaps we can discuss this and separate fact from fiction.
