Story via Portland Monthly:

Toby Froud, the baby in the striped PJs from the movie Labyrinth, grew up, moved to Portland … and premiered his own fantasy puppet film [Lessons Learned] on Saturday in collaboration with Jim Henson’s daughter, Heather. He might not have been raised by Goblin King Jareth (a.k.a. David Bowie in an explosion of lace and locks) and his goblin hordes in real life, but he came as close to it as possible, growing up the son of Brian and Wendy Froud, the reigning artistic royalty behind The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, and an entire illustrated world of faeries and goblins with an international following.

Here’s a very brief clip of Froud’s handiwork:
