The World of Jim Henson

The World of Jim Henson September 24, 2012

Today, had he lived so long, Jim Henson would have been 76 years old. Below is part 1 of 9 of a great documentary on the scope of his career and ambitions. The footage encompasses a wide range of fascinating projects covering everything from the muppets’ earliest appearances on variety shows and in commercials way back in the 1950’s and through his artier, darker post-Muppet Show work in the ’80s. It was so tragic that we lost such a genius and delightful human being so young. But it was our bittersweet luck that before he died he created so much, so tirelessly, with seemingly every minute he had alive, and therefore left us such a rich legacy nonetheless.

I highly recommend clicking through to YouTube and seeing the whole documentary.

I also recommend you use these complete playlists on YouTube to watch all the episodes of The Muppet Show and Muppets Tonight.
