7/16-17, 1983 – ‘Fraggle Rock meetings in Toronto.’

In preparation for the second season of taping for Fraggle Rock which would begin September 21, 1983, Jim headed up to Toronto that July to meet with the production team. During a summer that included shooting The Muppets Take Manhattan (helmed by Frank Oz), beginning the Jim Henson Presents The World of Puppetry series, and developing his inter-galactic Starboppers project, Jim piled up the frequent flyer miles. This was a typical travel schedule for Jim – heading to cities around the country in the 1960s and then expanding around the globe as he began to work internationally in the 1970s.
