    Question to everyone here. (and this is a goofy question)

    I was watching a bunch of old Muppet tapes this past Memorial Day weekend (yah, I'm a loser, but I had forgotten that I had some of this stuff on tape and got really really exicted, but anyway), and on the World of Jim Henson Video they showed old clips of the live action shorts that Jim made for S.Street.

    Here's my question. In one of those clips (in which we learn to count to three), is that a young Brian Henson with a plate containing three peas in front of him? I've not seen this one listed in any of the muppeteer cameos anywhere, and curiosity has gotten the better of me.

    I was wondering the same thing! I just watched The World of Jim Henson Last week and I said "That sure looks like Brian Henson!"
    That is so funny!

    Jim Henson made those himself, and he also was in one of them I think. I know he did the "King of 8" himself, too. There were several animated things he did for that show. Jim was truly remarkable.

    It seems as if all of us Muppet-folk are watching this wonderful tape.
    I took it out of the library just last week.
    I love "King of 8" too!

    Yep, that's Brian counting peas LOL!!
    Jim cameoed as a very talented juggler as well.

    I believe both clips are from the first SS episode, but I'm not sure.

    I think it was from 1st episode of "SS" too. I also think Brian has done a couple more of those number clips :confused: (Have to check it out :) )

    Does anyone else think the World of Jim Henson is an awesome video? Don't think I'm a dork, but I think I must have memorized what each person said I've watched it so much. That special is such a great tribute to Jim.

    Definitely a worthy special. My grandpa taped it when it first aired on PBS, back when I was in 4th grade. From then on, I knew wanted to see more Sam and Friends.
