The museum will place Miss Piggy on view within the American Stories exhibition in March 2014. In addition, several of the puppets from the Jim Henson Collection—including the original Kermit, not yet a frog, and Cookie Monster—will go on view in November in a display case that will include marionettes, hand puppets and ventriloquist figures.
Everything looks wonderful. And of course the timing could not have been more perfect, especially with the announcement being on Jim's birthday and with the release of the Jim Henson biography. Now I know what to look forward to the next time I go to Washington D.C.
I can only see 17 puppets on the table-J.P. Grosse,Wilkins,Cookie Monster,Miss Piggy, Elmo,Fozzie Bear,Grover,the Swedish Chef, Red Fraggle,Boober Fraggle,Travelling Matt Fraggle,Praire Dawn,The Count,Scooter,Rowlf,Ernie and Bert. I wonder who the other 4 are? They musnt be ready and need restoration. From the article, one must be a Skeksis.
I think this is a great way to honor Jim, and I really hope that this becomes a permanent part of the Smithsonian. I mean, why not? They already have Oscar the Grouch, Kermit and the entire "Sam and Friends" group.
But, wow! Some of these Muppets are actually really unexpected and obscure! I mean, J.P. Grosse and Scooter are finally reunited! How awesome is that? And the original Rowlf with piano to boot? Even better!
Heck, even Ol' Fuzzyface himself got invited to the party!
I am going down to DC with my band this spring, so maybe (hopefully) we will get to go here and see these AWESOME characters! I saw Kermit a few years back…. but the Sam and Friends puppets were "under restoration" at the time…
