    I challenge the Muppet Central people to find obscure connections between Jim Henson and other television shows.

    For example: I have heard that Jim Henson introduced to each other the two people who created Mainframe Entertainment which produced such computer animated shows such as Reboot.

    Jim Henson
    Saturday Night Live (Gorch Sketches)
    Frank Oz
    Dan Aykroyd

    Frank Oz appeared in several movies with Dan Aykroyd (Blues Brothers, BB2k, Spies Like Us).

    Jim Henson
    George Lucas
    Frank Oz as Yoda

    as far as television outside of the SNL link, I have no other ideas.

    I know Jim was working with Joe Raposo who had ties to Charles Schulz by composing "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown." Jim and Charles are both my heroes.
