5 Reasons why we love… Jim Henson


1. He invented Grover, Oscar the Grouch, Bert and Ernie, Cookie Monster, and Big Bird. Sesame Street would not be the same place without him

2. The Muppet Show and all it’s characters came directly from his mind.


3. He was a great employer! His co-workers said that he would never say he didn’t like something. He would just go ‘Hmm.’ And if he liked it, he would say, ‘Lovely!

4. He viewed Kermit the Frog as his alter-ego; a slightly more confident version of himself.


5. Jim Henson embodies greatness and humility. He was the best kind of creative genius: a kind and gentle one.
