When there is everyone out there who experienced the 80s and 90s and for some reason doesn’t understand what a Muppet is. African village. Even then, it is still bordering on being a weak excuse. It seems that a decent portion of my childhood memories, the following of my mates also I’ve come to study, are somehow attached to something that Jim Henson had his hand in. Storyteller or the Muppet’s heart and soul were present Whether that ‘shorter lived’ but really decent show titled The Henson,, or it was on the old enough Muppet Show, in a Muppet movie.
Anyways, the good love that plenty of had for Henson and his Muppets is virtually palpable. Just think for a minute. Alice Cooper, roger, peter Sellers, gene Kelly, john Cleese, harry Belafonte, raquel Welch as well as Christopher Reeve, heck as well as Moore James Coburn made a guest appearance on the show.

A well-known matter of fact that is. The Muppet poorest films were worth watching in case merely to be reunited with some dear mates. With that said, jim death Henson could been the end of these good characters but thankfully his kids, albeit not as successfully, planned to go on the magic. Nevertheless, they may have made a penny or 2 on the deal still I am confident that they wouldn’t have gone thru with the transaction when they weren’t sure that their dad’s pride and joy were going to the following hands who should treat them well.
Sounds familiar? After the very disappointing Muppet version of Oz Wizard it seemed as though the intangible spark that made the Muppets exceptional was gone for good. Needless to say, as an attempt to return to form it seems that Disney’s cronies are going back to what worked in the beginning. The newest film currently in production about trying to save an old enough theater from the wrecking ball possibly should be the perfect platform for The Mouse and the Muppets to search for their bearings and make something especial. Time will tell.
You challenged me on huge amount of levels and kept me in touch with my own humanity. That’s what Harry Belafonte said in his speech at Jim Henson’s memorial service. What more is said?
