Jim’s note to David Bowie about the Firey sequence in Labyrinth.
Special care went into shooting the wild things (later dubbed Fireys), loose-limbed characters that danced crazily, tossing their body parts and removing their eyes as they sang “Chilly Down”, the first song Bowie wrote for the film. Way-laying Sarah, they were, as described by Bowie, “…a bit cruel, but infectiously hilarious.” The intricate routine grew from Jim’s original notes and storyboard, worked out by choreographer Charles Augins. With four weeks of rehearsals, Augins discovered that, “…there’s nothing a puppet can’t do, which is very useful!”

Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are in Sarah’s room (Labyrinth). It is no coincidence that Spike Jonze’s Where the Wild Things Are (where the Henson’s Creature Shop did the Wild Things costumes) became one of my favourite movies from the very first time I saw it.
