Turns Out Jim Henson Was Creepy: Here’s How

Jim Henson, the creator and mastermind behind The Muppets, was a genius, but it turns out before his fame his characters were really creepy.

Henson, before he broke out as a start of puppetry, created several muppet characters (including a prototype Kermit) to promote something called Wilkins Coffee.

If you haven’t heard of Wilkins Coffee, feel fortunate: it died sometime in the 70s but not before Jim Henson (yes the very same lovable creator of Sesame Street), tried to make you die for not drinking it.

Here’s the commercial with Jim Henson’s creations features in .GIF format:




And the violent conclusion to the Wilkins Coffee commercial
