A Tribute to Jim Henson

I don’t know about everyone else, but when I was growing up, I used to love watching the Muppet Show, Fraggle Rock, Sesame Street, and movies such as “The Muppets Take Manhattan” and the classic David Bowie movie “Labyrinth.” So who do we have to thank for pioneering such awesome moments in my childhood growing up?

Jim Henson!

As the creator of the Muppets, he has gone on to create shows that would capture the imagination of kids, adults, and mental patients everywhere. He is a legend in the world of puppeteering and deserves all the recognition he received over the years.

Of course, his life came to an abrupt end on May 16, 1990, but his legacy lives on over twenty years later.

I bring up this subject because today would have been his 74th birthday. I saw this video and some videos from his memorial service and the tears kept flowing.

Thank you, Jim, for your positive contributions to my generation and for all the laughs and fun. You won’t soon be forgotten!
