Muppet Mansion Sold!
Jim Henson’s former studio in New York recently found a new buyer. Jesse Angelo, editor of The Daily purchased the townhome dubbed the Muppet Mansion. Henson bought the house in 1977 for $600,000 to serve as a workshop for his creations. After his death, his estate sold the home to a Bank of American executive for $12.5 million. Angelo paid $23 million, but the deal was sweetened when he was promised a Muppet likeness of himself.
