There is no puppeteer more well-known in the U.S. than Jim Henson. You might know him for creating the Muppets or for his work on Sesame Street. Even though he passed away in 1990, Jim Henson is still highly regarded as one of the most incredible artists of his time.
Labyrinth was Jim Henson’s last feature film before he died, and it’s seen great success since his death. Aside from Bowie and Connelly, the rest of the characters in the film were played by puppets created in Jim Henson’s Creature Shop.
