I couldn't possibly say it better than Kwame Opam of Gizmodo:
"Happy 75th Birthday, Jim Henson. And Thank YouToday is Jim Henson's 75th birthday. And in my mind, there ought to be parades to honor this man's legacy. Because, as a filmmaker and innovator, he did it all. Whether you're a kid or an adult, he touched us all. So celebrations are in order."
As a part of these celebrations I present to you my favorite Sesame Street/The Muppet Show videos
