If you do one thing today, it should be this…you MUST check out what some of the writers at GeekDad have pulled together in remembrance of Jim Henson’s passing 20 years ago.
I grew up watching obsessing over Fraggle Rock and Sesame Street, and when I got a bit older I would watch The Muppet Show reruns on Nick at Night. I still get teary-eyed when I think about hearing the news that he had passed away. You know when people ask which five people you’d have over for dinner, alive or dead? It’s always so hard to answer in that moment, but I will always have a spot saved for Jim Henson.
All of the videos from his memorial in 1990 are posted over at GeekDad, but here’s a favorite of mine with Big Bird singing It’s Not Easy Being Green. These are probably some of the most touching and meaningful moments you’ll ever see, so please, please, please check them out.
