The Muppets’ violent past. It’s good to see reform can actually work.
Before Jim Henson’s puppets became famous through Sesame Street and various movies, his Muppet characters had a dark, seedy past. Between 1957 and 1961 Henson made a series of 10 second commercial spots for Wilkins, a coffee supplier with regional distribution in the Baltimore – D.C. area.
Drink our coffee, or else, was the basic message. These fairly violent short videos are delightful. I hope you enjoy them.
