I haven’t been able to stop thinking about Jim Henson since I posted that quote earlier.  I know it’s not a Jim Henson quote, but it just made me think of him.  And keep thinking of him.  I really loved him.  His work meant so much to me.  Sesame Street, The Muppets, Fraggles!  OMG, the love!  I have never stopped watching Sesame Street.  I don’t watch it everyday or anything, but I will watch it every now and then.  I have Muppet Show and Fraggle Rock dvds.  He was a true genius and a gift!  I’ve collected quite a few Jim Henson photos.  I don’t even know where to begin with the posting of them.  But I have to start somewhere.  And I’ll start with

Jim Henson

This one. Because it’s brilliant.

I heart Bert & Ernie!

I always liked Vincent Price for unknown reasons.  Maybe Thriller.  Anyway, that coupled with the fact that I recently watched the entire first season of True Blood in two days made me want to include this one.

Fraggle Rock may be my favorite.  I can’t commit, but that’s the conclusion I keep coming to.  The Doozers!  Those crystal-ish things they contructed for the Fraggles to eat! Madame Trash Heap!  The Gorgs!  Sprocket!  Uncle Traveling Matt! Don’t even get me started.

I think it’s too late for that….

  1. Awww…Fraggle Rock. I forgot about that one.
    Tiff!! You R such a kid at heart!! I enjoyed all of these things as a child too….but Thriller (especially Vincent Price’s part) scared the -ish outta me. But the video was so fascinating to watch.

  3. Just came across this post after doing a picture search on Jim Henson. Love the pic of all The Muppets with Jim’s photo.

    10th anniversary of his death on Sunday but he truly will live forever.
