With much of the fall of 1980 spent in London shooting The Great Muppet Caper, Jim was happy to come home to his family in New York for Christmas. He flew home with his daughter Lisa on the 24th and enjoyed a few relaxed days. By the 28th, Jim was back at the airport, heading to London to finish his film.
In June 1965, 28-year-old Jim Henson started a written log of his activities in what became known as “The Red Book.” He noted down what had happened up until that point (deemed “Ancient History”) and then recorded anything that he felt was worth recording as single line journal entries until the end of 1988.
