What more can be said that hasn't already been said? Jim Henson will always be one of the greatest entertainers of all time. There's no telling what he would have been doing with the technology that we have today. The fact that his legacy is still alive and well 31 years later is a testament to all the dedication he put in to the projects he made. May he rest in peace. DefunctTV's Jim Henson series does a perfect job of capturing his life and work.
