DEBUT 1988
DESIGN Ed Christie Muppet
  Karl Wendelin base/scaffolding

Spruce Springsteen is a Muppet that was created to be auctioned off for the Night of 100 Trees in 1988.

The base was designed by freelancer Karl Wendelin, and featured pictures of the Muppets as musical celebrities from Muppet Magazine, including Kermit as Michael Jackson and Bruce Springsteen (for whom this character is parodied), Miss Piggy as Madonna, and Janice as Tina Turner.

The piece also includes three small snowmen, which are rebuilt Doozers, flocked and painted for the occasion. A tag signed by Jim Henson was sewn into the Muppet after completion.
