You may have noticed that we don’t normally do historic birthdays or deaths. But I’m going to make an exception today, because on this day in 1990, Jim Henson died. And we seem to be angling to become the Internet’s go-to blog for all things Henson. Regardless, the above video is Part One of the Muppets’ tribute to Henson after his death. The first three minutes are almost unbearably sad. So, if that’s not your thing, below you’ll find another Henson tribute, from his funeral, featuring the hilarious Kevin Clash. Finally, here’s the Times‘s Henson obit.
