It’s truly the end of an era for the Jim Henson Company. The iconic Jim Henson Company Lot—an essential piece of Hollywood history—is up for sale. In an exclusive report from Drew Taylor at TheWrap, the company intends to unify their operations with Jim Henson’s Creature Shop under one expansive roof. Unfortunately, this makes their Hollywood location impractical due to space concerns.

Originally the brainchild of film legend Charlie Chaplin, the lot was established as Charlie Chaplin Studios in 1917 and earned the title of Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument. Over the years, the property has embraced numerous identities—from Kling Studios and Red Skelton Studios to famous filming spots for TV classics like “Adventures of Superman” and “Perry Mason.” It was home to A&M Records and A&M Recording Studios between 1966 and 1999, before welcoming The Jim Henson Company headquarters in 2000.

The Henson Lot has been a creative haven, nurturing projects like Disney+’s “Earth to Ned.” As of now, the future location of the Jim Henson Company remains unknown. There’s also no word on whether they’ll continue offering studio tours or the cherished “Puppet Up!” live show, a favorite during Knott’s Scary Farm at Knott’s Berry Farm.

Jim Henson’s legacy is intricately woven with the magic of Hollywood, and this sale marks a poignant chapter in the company’s history. Where do you think the Jim Henson Company should relocate?
