Appreciating Frith's talents as a designer, Jim Henson brought him on board his creative team. One of Frith's early projects was designing the Land of Gorch characters for Saturday Night Live. Frith recalled his beginnings with the Muppets in The Saturday Evening Post: "The first drawings I ever worked on were characters for Saturday Night Live. The Muppets did regular segments for a season featuring characters about as far removed from Sesame Street as you could get. Jim asked me to come over one day to talk about creating Muppet personalities—specifically, strange, mossy, warty creatures. Instead of traditional ones with cartoon eyes—round, white and black—he had become fascinated with taxidermist eyes: cow, camel and tiger eyes. Around this simple concept of a different eye evolved a whole new concept which led to the creation of the crazy-eyed loonies we enjoy today."
