Thing that's making us smile this week
It seems almost impossible to believe, but it was 21 years ago yesterday that Jim Henson passed away. Anyone who was lucky enough to grow up, or watch their children grow up, while the Muppets reigned supreme in the late seventies and early eighties probably still feels his loss. From his contributions to Sesame Street, to the Muppet Show and beyond, his artistry and humor are still very much present all these years later. With such a treasure trove of great moments to choose from, it was hard to select only one thing that makes us smile, but I had to go with my daughter's all-time favorite and the first sketch to appear on the Muppet Show: Mahna Mahna. Enjoy!
