OMG, I miss him too!
His kids sold out his company to the WOKE ZOMBIES, and they've ROYALLY fucked up his lifes work!!

It was a shock hearing about him passing away.

Anyway, the Muppets all died, as far as I'm concerned, when Frank Oz retired.

He retired YEARS ago.

I stopped watching the muppets, as Miss Piggy had retired.
Don't know who does the voices now, don't care.

LMFFAOROFL!!!

OMG!!! I guess I'm too young to remember those commercials!

I know Jim got his start in commercials, and saved his money to invest in childrens television.

You know those commercials would NEVER be allowed to be aired today!!!

Thanks, I will and don't forget I might be young but age doesn't affect intelligence. I'm a whole lot smarter than people who are older than me on here. XD

Actually, Jim Henson developed his first TV show "Sam and Friends" 1955-1961 for an adult audience. During the first season of "Saturday Night Live", The Muppets had a recurring sketch called "The Land of Gorch".

Jim Henson made two more attempts to launch adult-centric comedy shows with The Muppets but, by that time, the brand was too closely associated with children's programming and they failed.

Wow.

Thanks for posting that!

What a blast from the past!!

So many good, awesomely talented people have made it big and passed away in my lifetime so far.
How sad to see them gone.

That old addage holds true...............The Good Die Young.
