The Humble Beginnings of Bumble (-Ardy)
With Bumble-Ardy out on the shelves now (which thrills and delights me...I'm sure you can tell), I thought I'd share with you the very beginning of the Bumble-Ardy. Maurice Sendak first began to develop the character in 1971, in an animated short for TV's Sesame Street by Jim Henson. In the short film, Bumble-Ardy was a nine year old boy who invites nine swine over for a party while his mum is at work. Enjoy!
