Tough Pigs recently sat down for an exclusive interview with Bonnie Erickson. If you don’t already know Bonnie’s name, you should; she headed the Muppet Workshop for many years during the Muppet Show era (she is credited as as the designer and builder of Miss Piggy, the Muppet Newsman, Statler and Waldorf among many, many other famous characters) and is currently the Executive Director of the Jim Henson Legacy.
Here are links to all four parts of the interview:
- Interview with Bonnie Erickson, part one
- Interview with Bonnie Erickson, part two
- Interview with Bonnie Erickson, part three
- Interview with Bonnie Erickson, part four
It’s a great interview and a must-read for Muppet fans and anyone els curious about what it was like to work in the Muppet workshop in the heyday of the `70s and `80s.
