I'm especially fond of her primatology work.

Why not call her his "wife"?

From the info I can find they were legally separated, but not actually divorced.

She also was his literal partner in puppeteer in the early years.

It was a good idea.

They left the world a better place.

I never saw her name before, but I must have experienced a lot of her work in my youth.

RIP

As a dedicated pothead, I watch Sesame Street every day. Old school, though. Nothing after 85 or so. Current Sesame Street should be ashamed of itself.

RIP, Muppet-Woman.

I actually can do a spot-on Kermit the frog voice.

Imagine this sentence in Kermit's voice. See? I sounded just like him.

It was her coat that became Kermit.

She's dead, Jim.

I just moved into a new place and didn't have the cable hooked up yet so I watched The Muppet Movie. Im getting kicks out of these replies.

Swear to god, if I ever get time travel powers but am only allowed to make *minor* changes to the timeline (can't stop or warn people in advance of World Trade Tower, etc), I'm going back in time, befriending Jim Henson, then later grabbing him by his lapel pins and dragging him to the farking hospital.

For the love of god, don't!

I do have time travel powers and told him it was 'just a cold'.

In the original timeline, a mad Jim Henson became president in '08 and started a nuclear war.

Point of order:  Discussions on President Henson and the Fozziecaust should go in the appropriate forum.

What makes you think that'd be a minor change? Jim Henson affected a lot of people over the years. More than the vast majority of people, I'm sure, even politicians.

do you think...he ever used her like a muppet? maybe it was the other way around and that is why he ended up with a blockage.

*That. Was. Awesome.* Thank you.

I dont know much about her, but Jim was one of the best humanity had to offer. I imagine Jim, Jesus, and George Carlin hanging out in Heaven and making wildly inappropriate jokes about the show 'Touched by an Angel.'

In other news, USA Today apparently doesn't know how to avoid JPEG compression artifacts.

That was Henson's mom's coat.

Makes sense as they stopped mattering in the late '90s.
