  • Google Celebrates Jim Henson's 75th Birthday

    Posted on September 28, 2011 by PopFunk

    On September 24, The Jim Henson Company celebrated what would have been the 75th birthday of the famed puppeteer, producer, director and all-around visionary. In a unique collaboration with Google, Jim Henson’s Creature Shop built original digital puppets for the occasion, resulting in a custom Google Doodle – the company’s awesome, often interactive alternative front page logos. Google Doodle for Jim Henson's 75th Birthday. To go along with Doodle, Jim’s son Brian (who now runs the family business) wrote a poignant tribute to his father for the Google Blog.

    “[Jim Henson] loved games—card games, board games, all kinds of games. He was one of those rare parents who was always ready to play again. He loved dogs, particularly goofy ones. And he lived for those moments when everyone laughed so hard they couldn’t talk. I often walked onto the Muppet set to find everyone just laughing hysterically.”

    Thanks for the years of laughter, Jim. Happy 75th from Popfunk! Read More
