Just curious, did Jim Henson ever have a best friend or close friends before The Muppets or even outside the media industry? I remember hearing that Jim was sort of shy but when The Muppets grew, not only he developed a huge team of talented people but a lot of close friends with his employees. I've heard stories that Jim would take The Muppet team on vacation from water skeeing to parties at The Waldorf. I'm just curious if Jim had close friends outside The Muppets and the media industry. I think I remember Frank Oz quoting on the Memorial recording in 1990 that they were best friends, I would go back and watch it but even though I own a copy of it, it's so hard to watch, so tear jerking.
