    Jack Davis Sherlock Hemlock's Hidden Answer Jigsaw Puzzles "Puzzle of the Hidden S's" Sesame Street Muppets Illustration Original Art (Educational Toys, Inc., 1971). How many of the letter "S" can you find in this painting? This fantastic watercolor painting of the Sesame Street Muppets cooking and serving a spaghetti dinner is chaotic magic! Many of Jim Henson's most beloved characters are here, including Bert and Ernie, Grover, Cookie Monster, and Big Bird. The puzzles in this series each featured a hidden letter or shape for children to find, and also came with a color transparency "looking glass" that would reveal the hidden letters/shapes. These bright, vibrant watercolors are on illustration paper and taped to illustration board. The image area measures 9" x 11.5" and it's signed by Jack Davis in the bottom right image area. Davis is well known to readers of MAD Magazine and TV Guide, among many many other places his work has appeared. This piece has an extremely minor rust mark just into the top edge of the image, but is otherwise in Excellent condition.
