Jabberwocky was a concept that I started thinking about while studying television production in 1970 at the University of Michigan. At that time Jabberwocky was recorded in a black and white television studio using 2” recording tape, combining puppets with live actors. The opening and closing segments of this updated color production utilize the original puppets that were used in the black and white version some 50 years ago. Ironically I started creating the Jabberwocky puppet long before the Corona Virus hit the world stage but its uncanny resemblance to my puppet has given me some hope that humanity will prevail.
