Does anyone know which celebrities were in attendance at Jim Henson's memorial service? These are who I have so far:

Harry Belafonte (He performed)
Sam Raimi (he was dating Lisa Henson at the time)
Rick Moranis (Jim Hill media confirmed this one)
Daryl Hannah (Jim Hill media confirmed this one as well)
George Lucas (Ditto to this fella)

I can only assume that people like Paul Williams, John Denver and Lena Horne, good friends of Jim and his work, were also in attendance, but I hadn't heard one way or another.

Any thoughts?

Candace Bergen might have been there, but just a guess. I am sure all or most of the Sesame Street cast was there.

Paul Williams was there.
Former Good Morning America host David Hartman.
The cast of Sesame Street are all I can think of.

I wish they would release the entire Jim Henson Memorial Service since it was videotaped. Either it's in the Henson archives or Disney's archives. (Because at the time Disney was going to buy the company.)

I've received a few group emails from someone who is selling DVDs of this on ebay. I personally didnt think it was the right thing for someone to do to profit from Jim's death
