    To those who love stuff that was done by either Jim Henson and/or Jim Henson Studios mention what you all liked and still like about Jim Henson.

    It can be from Sesame Street, The Muppets, Fraggle Rock, Alf, or whatever else was done by Jim Henson and/or Jim Henson Studios.

      Everything Jim Henson touched turned to gold. That man is my God. He died way too damned early or something way too trivial. Everytime they sing Rainbow Connection at the end of Muppet Take Manhatten, I think about Jim Henson and bawl my friggin eyes out. I get teary if I even watch old interviews with him. Working on getting all I can of his on DVD but probably still missing a few of the little things that are available.

      Oh, and the Storyteller and Greek Storyteller DVDs are absoultely AMAZING!

        The best work from Jim Henson studios is Farscape. No question. It should NOT have been cancelled!

          I was really sad when Jim Henson died. I remember the very first episode of Dinosaurs was dedicated to his memory

            In Fall of 2005, The Jim Henson Company is releasing a new fantasy motion picture called Mirror Mask. This movie is done by the same creators of both The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. And it's based off the novel by Neil Gaiman. It'll be directed by David McKean and produced by Lisa Henson (daughter of Jim Henson).

            Here is a trailer to Mirror Mask.

              Aaahh, one of the greats! I loved all of Jim Henson's creations, especially Labryinth, but The Dark Crystal was weird and freakish to me. Still, he's greatly missed, RIP Jim Henson.

                The man was a genius, and one of the greatest in my mind.

                I don't have a bad word to say about anything he's done.

                      I loved farscape, I downloaded everyepisode. I think they are juming the shark with SG1 right now introducing the cast of farscape.
                      You could tell that the writers of farscape got pissed of with sifi due to the way the series ended.
                      I plan on buying the full set of Farscape DVD's
                      And now for something completely different................

                              It looks like MirrorMask is only in a few theathers nationwide according to my IMDB search.

                              And in case somebody didn't know it yet the first season of Fraggle Rock is out as well.

                              One of the coolest DVD I have is "Muppets Magic: From The Ed Sullivan Show". It's interesting to see some of the future skits and characters from the "Muppet Show". I wish "Sam and Friends" was on video so I could see his early work.
                              Ronald McDonald is just a second rate Bozo!

                                    I love Fraggle Rock, Labrynth was just one of the best movies, and any muppet movie is great. I have a movie by him I have not heard many people mention "Oscar Otters Jug Band Christmas". I love the Riverbottom Nightmare band song.

                                        THAT's what it was called, I have been trying to figure out the name of Tales of the Bunny Picnic for YEARS!

                                          My favoriteJim Henson stuff (I liked just about all of it):

                                          The Storyteller
                                          Dinosaurs
                                          Muppet Babies

                                          Was Henson Involved in Labyrinth?

                                          It makes me mad at truth
                                          For loving what was you"
