Henson and MUppets


Today is the mastermind behind the Muppets birthday.  That’s right Jim Henson’s birthday is today.  Jim would have been 77 today.  And I have to admit I miss the man.  I’d never met him, but I grew up with the Muppets.  The original series aired in the late 70’s and early 80’s when I was a kid and I never. missed. an. episode.  I’ve seen them all.  I even have some of them on….VHS!  (That’s really old DVD’s for you youngsters out there.)

There’s no doubting that Jim Henson was a frikkin’ genius.  He and his epic buddy Frank Oz, made some of the most beloved and iconic characters in entertainment history.  I don’t think I could honestly pick a favorite Muppet if I tried.  They all have special places in my heart, from Kermit to Piggy from Oscar to Snuffleupagus from Dozers to Gobo.  They have all spent special places in my heart, and I miss watching The Muppets on TV.

In honor of Jim’s birthday, please share with me your favorite Muppets or Muppet moments.  There are so many I can’t pick a favorite, but here are a couple for all the geeks out there.

Happy Birthday, Jim.  You are missed.
