Street Season 48
Sesame Street's 48th season
officially began Monday August 6 on PBS. After you see the new episodes,
post here and let us know your thoughts.
Discussion in 'Henson People' started by Phillip, Apr 2, 2013.
I didn't say it was a bad thing. I was just noticing it, that's all! Sorry 'bout bringing that up.
Jane Henson left $100,000 to the University of Connecticut to establish a scholarship at the university's school of puppetry. It's great to know that her legacy will live on helping a new generation of puppeteers get their chance to learn the craft.
Thanks for the information.
I started a converstation here on the forums about what the Muppets really mean to us fans. There have been some very touching posts and I almost wanted to send them to Jane but she passed before I even started the thread. I know that people from Henson/Disney/Sesame see what we put on here but I think if the Henson's would see some of these posts it would warm there heart of the work that both Jim and Jane have giving to the world. It really is touching and I don't think that this world will ever see anyone as wonderful and giving and caring as Jim and Jane both seemed to be.
The current issue of People Magazine has a little blurb about Jane in their obituary section.
While Jane may not be here anymore, she will always be with us...
My thoughts and prayers continue to go out to Heather and the entire Henson family...
I know I'm late to this discussion, but I just wanted to share my tribute card to Jane Henson. The original is with a friend of mine who works at Sesame Workshop. This person made sure to show it to one of the Henson kids. I can't really say any more about that, but I did tell my friend "Since Jane knew a lot of folks at Sesame Workshop, can you just tack it up on the bulletin board in the lounge? Next to the coffee pot would be appropriate. Sorry I can't make the memorial service."
I promised that they (the Sesame folks) would get to see it first before I posted it online.
So anyway, here it is.
Here's to Jane.
What a nice tribute. Thanks for sharing with us.
Oh yes, a really great card design, John!
Thanks, folks. I know Wontkins isn't getting blown up, smashed, eaten, etc. but I figured under the circumstances, the two of them could declare a truce.
I had the most wonderful opportunity to meet Mrs. Henson several years ago at a Sesame Workshop workshop. She took a great interest in what I was doing, what was on the horizon, etc. I will always be glad that I was able to meet and share some time with her.
They did a beautiful tribute to her at the O'Neil Puppetry Conference. Very moving.
Really, Mr. Foobly? What was it like?
Yeah! What was the tribute like?
A few long0time puppeteers delivered eulogies, and then everyone paraded down to the sunken garden on the O'Neill campus. A tree was planted in her honor, and everyone hung messages for Mrs. Henson on the tree. The ceremony concluded with a song - Rainbow Connection, of course. I hope someone recorded it...
That's wonderful. Someone might have recorded the whole tribute privately.
Yeah, I guess it's not our place to have it. The family should have it. Beautiful though it was.
how sad to hear of her passing. She must be happy to be reunited with Jim Henson in heaven.
Yeah, I think she is.
