Just noticed this morning on my local news that Jim Henson, creator of the muppets has died from a bacterialogical infection.  :(

I haven't been able to confirm this story or not as of yet...


Rest in peace...


Whoops!!!!!!   :wideeyed:  :eek4:


I goofed on this.... :hehe:

Didn't realize that he passed on back in 1990 on this day...   :oh:  

Sheesh!!!!!!!   :crazy:  :D

Umm... Jim Henson died in 1990.

15 years ago today (16 May) which is probably where the confusion arose. Someone did a "On this day..." roundup I assume.

I wondered if I had fallen into a time loop!  

However, he is missed.  My son just recently asked me what the difference was between Muppets and Sesame Street.  Having never really watched "the Muppets" he had had very limited exposure to them, and only just now realized that they looked just like the Sesame Street characters.  So I got to explain to him all about Jim Hensen. :love:
