Muppetrivia: Lewis Carrol

I love the Muppets and Jim Henson is one of my biggest influences, so I'm dedicating a recurring segment of MMMEB: Muppetrivia! Every time I press the Random Page button on Muppet Wiki, I'll write about it, and today we'll talk about author Lewis Carroll!

Lewis Carroll (1832 - 1898) was the pen name of author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson.
Carroll is best remembered for his book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871). The Alice stories have been adapted in several Muppet and Creature Shop productions, notably in episode 506 of The Muppet Show, with guest star Brooke Shields in the role of Alice.
Both Carroll's writing and real life were used as the basis for the film Dreamchild, which detailed the relationship between Dodgson and Alice Liddell, the inspiration for the novels' title character. Ian Holm portrayed Dodgson/Carroll, and the Creature Shop provided puppets of the fictional characters.

What Some Scribner? Have Some!!

No doubt about it, Rod Scribner is oe of the greatest animators of all time. Probably the best animtor in Bob Clampett's unit, he drew the characters the wackiest, rubberiest, and most appealing! These frame grabs should tell how great he is.
