Happy Birthday and R.I.P., Jim Henson! Growing up with Sesame Street and, to a lesser extent, The Muppets FTW

Happy Birthday and RIP Jim Henson!

This was the man that gave us The Muppets and Sesame Street, two of the major staples of I think almost everyone's childhoods. I think we can all agree that Kermit the Frog was his definitive role though there never was a bad character that he played over the course of his life. It's truly a shame that he had died before his time.

Happy Birthday and RIP. Wonderful job with Ernie, Kermit, Guy Smiley, Rowlf, Dr. Teeth, The Swedish Chef, The Muppet Newsman and Pink Hogthrob, and for making Muppets come to be. If still alive today you'd be 79.

Similar to how you passed away at the age of 53 1/2 in 1990, this year we had a similar loss to a Nice to've known man at the age of 55 1/2 (lived 2 years longer), Nintendo's Global President Satoru Iwata. If only you were still alive to see he, Miyamoto and Reggie as Muppets during this year's E3 Presentation.

As has been the case for the Past 25 years, you definitely have been missed, Muppets have still done well without you, and I'm sure Nintendo still will without Iwata. May he also Rest in Piece.
