Today would have been Jim Henson's 76th birthday. Unfortunately, we lost Jim in 1990 to a friggin' sore throat. I was in 7th grade and I cried for a week. If you feel like sobbing uncontrollably go to this link and watch Big Bird sing It's Not Easy Being Green. Can't...see...keyboard...too many...tears. He did leave us an amazing legacy of work that forever changed movies, TV, music, education, and puppetry. Here is Jim doing his iconic Scandinavian cook, the Swedish Chef. In this episode, he attempts to make lobster with some unexpected results. If this doesn't make you smile, you are dead inside.
