At the Univ. of Maryland, College Park here, there is currently an
exhibit on Jim Henson's work and production company. It will be here at
the Student Union gallery (at the center of campus) mid-Feb thru. March
21st. If you get down this way I'm sure it would interest you as there is
much about animation (his early models and sketches for all his Sesame
Street charaters, his many other production, co-productions, commercials,
and movies, [ie: Dark Crystal, Labyrinth]...
Also the Univ MD is showing numerous films that he either directed
and produced or was involved in, as well as some early 'behind the
scences' footage about how animation, puppetery (sp?), etc. develped.
I don't know if they have a web site or home page, but I can go
back to find out if you are interested.
