    The genius that started it all: Jim Henson. Jim Henson is one of the best people of all time, and, today, he turns 78. Congratulations, Jim! He'll be looking down on me, also, when I celebrate him on his 100th birthday. Feel free to share memories of him if you have met him, feel free to show me your favorite Jim Henson moment. Whatever you want to do to celebrate the occasion, do it on this thread. He'll be looking down at us, thinking that we've been doing a job.

    My birthday is also today, and I can't get over the fact that I share a birthday with such a great man (make that two for Steve Whitmire!). He still severely missed and I love everything to do with his work. As for my favorite Jim Henson moment.....I'd have to say whenever he would get in front of the camera (and not under a puppet) and talk about his creation, just to see how he was so passionate about it. Either that or all of his characters both well known and hardly known at all. Happy Birthday Jim Henson! We still miss you very dearly!

    Ahem! Sorry about the Kermit smileys but they do turn my frown to a smile. So, it's Frog Day, eh? I been waiting for this day to come (not to mention being impatient about it). I do miss Jim, but maybe someday I will watch his movies and stuff if I am not busy with school or work. :sigh:

    R.I.P. Jim Henson. You will be missed. :(

    I can do as much frog smilies than anybody in the universe! :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

    I also like when Jim is on screen, not with a puppet. I like The Muppets on Puppets and Henson's Place. What can I say?

    Wherever you are, Jim, I hope you fully understand how the world misses your magic and touch on our lives. Even though I'm still quite young, watching your works and contributions to our celebrity-driven mass media is refreshing, and makes me feel young again. Your legacy still lives on in our hearts, and as long as the Muppets are how you envisioned them, it's like you really never left. Happy Birthday, Jim!

    Ditto!! Jim Henson was one of the best people of the 1970's, as well as one of the great geniuses of our time.

    Happy 78th, without Jim I would not be on this forum, and this forum would not exist.

    That's another good reason to celebrate Jim. He seemed like such a nice guy.

    I can't even explain into words how much of an inspiration this guy is to me.:jim:

    Every time I look back at one of his many previous projects and several behind-the-scenes videos, I just wanna shed a tear and thank him for everything that he gave us and the fact that his legacy still shines bright today.:)
