He still doesn't get it but I married him anyway and I'm indoctrinating my kids into the Cult of Henson. Over the summer my son loved this vid; he still sings it, driving his sisters crazy. Well, unless they're joining in.
Today would have been Henson's 75th birthday and there's a Google Doodle to mark the occasion. From Sam and Friends in 1955 to the upcoming Disney Muppet movie starring Jason Segel Henson's creations have been celebrated and satirized, loved and loathed, but ignored only by my husband apparently. In preparing this post I kept looking at vids and thinking, "Ooh, I should use this one, no this one, no, this one..." so the rest of this post is just a bunch of my favorites. Which is yours? Comments are open.
