Where Kermit Works in Hollywood
Our Private Tour in Los Angeles Keeps Kids Smiling
One of the many destinations we keep in mind with young folks aboard a private tour of Los Angeles is the Henson Studios in Hollywood. In the beginning this was Charlie Chaplin’s studio built in 1917. Two buildings and Chaplin’s former swimming pool have been converted into recording studios. The facility still maintains a small, homey atmosphere. What captures the eyes of our kinderfolk is the green statue of Kermit the Frog standing above the studio entrance dressed as Chaplin’s tramp character and doffing his bowler hat. The studio possesses a considerable amount of Hollywood history from Chaplin, Red Skelton and Perry Mason to Herb Alpert and then The Muppets (Jim Henson Company). Our guides will fill everyone in when they stop here for photographs on their luxury tour. Nickelodeon has studios nearby for another nod to the culture of kids and places to go on a tour over Spring Break and Summer Vacation. Besides the studios there are playgrounds and museums, celebrity dog parks and other places, some little known, that are special for young people when sightseeing in Los Angeles, Hollywood and Beverly Hills.
