Remembering Jim Henson
I remember the day I heard that Jim Henson had died. I was driving along in my car, on my way to teacher’s college. (Must’ve been circa 1990, but I’m not sure of the exact year.) I was listening to the radio news. When they announced it, I just could hardly believe it. For me, it was as though Kermit the Frog had died, too! Dear little Kermie, whom I had grown up with and loved so much! It has so stuck in my mind that I think I can almost remember which stretch of road I was on! Later I was in class…an art lesson…and still kept thinking about it.

I’m so glad Jim's son went on with The Muppets and continued on doing Kermit’s special voice, so that he can still live on. I think that I even considered the idea at the time and hoped that it would happen that way. The Muppet Show…Yaaaaaay!!

Mood - Quiet
Music - None
Edited - Never

It's time to play the music,it's time to light the glad that you loved them as well.It really was something that all the family could watch.As you already know i've been watching the show lately and some of the things said by the old guys would've gone over my head as a child-so hence you see the appeal for adults as well.What a fantastic concept it was.Hard,too,to believe that were actually people operating the characters because they used to-and still do-seem so real!A testament to the great skill of those involved.I wish thing(in vain)that things could be the way they were during that time period .

Absolutely.  I too miss the Muppets, and the extremely talented people who brought them to life.

Hey, I remember I use to watch "The Muppets" and "Sesame Street" when I was about 4-6, ocassionally I'd watch it now, but not that much.. (By the way if you don't know "Sesame Street" it was a show on ABC, that had the muppets in it aswell, didn't it?) I think I grew up with Jim's son doing the show, because i was born in 1991, and you said that Jim Henson died around 1990 And remember that episode of "The Goodies" called Earthanasia, where it had Graeme doing those voices of The Muppets, I thought he did a really good job of copying them!

The Muppets represented a time of innocents which I think is sadly not as abundant now as it was when we were younger (very deep).
Having said that my children love the Muppets and find it unbelievable hysterical when i point out items of works/voices/directing that 'Miss Piggy" aka Frank Oz has done.  "You mean Miss Piggy's a man"

Hmmm...unfortunately, it wasn't all innocence. There were still trash shows when I was a kid, which DID NOT get air-time in my home: Number 96 and The Box. They were late night, adult shows, though. Junk, like the trash of today...but family shows really were family shows when we were young.
