Between 1967 and 1974, Jim Henson and his longtime writing partner Jerry Juhl developed three drafts of a screenplay for a feature length film called Tale of Sand. It is the only feature length screenplay written by Jim Henson that he was never able to produce in his lifetime. A Tale of Sand follows scruffy everyman, Mac, who wakes up in an unfamiliar town, and is chased across the desert of the American Southwest by all manners of man and beast of unimaginable proportions. Produced with the complete blessing of Lisa Henson, A Tale of Sand will allow Henson fans to recognize some of the inspirations and set pieces that appeared in later Henson Company productions. In 2012, Archaia published a graphic novel adaptation as realized by illustrator Ramón K Pérez which went on to win three Eisner Awards and two Harvey Awards.
