I was not a fan of the muppets growing up. I knew muppet babies and sesame street, but the muppets themselves remained.. on the sidelines. Their influence however, could be felt in every production, film, development, child show, cartoon show, and everywhere you knew that Jim Henson's name was somewhere in there. Still an influence on children everywhere.

I know alot of people probably didn't pick up on this, but the way you made the different aspects of this video (Jim's funeral, the Muppet tribute, and Jim's final few projects) all appear at random, just like how The Jim Henson Hour was formatted, is brilliant. That type of attention to detail is what separates great video creators from the rest. This whole series was perfect.

I was three years old when I saw The Muppet Movie. The opening sequence was my introduction to cinema. After watching this documentary, I now realize that Jim Henson is responsible for my love of films. I have been subconsciously comparing every movie I watch to how I felt watching Kermit sing “The Rainbow Connection”. Not sure if there is an Oscar for independent documentaries, but this miniseries would be a shoe-in to win it. Well done.

Thanks for the 2 hours of tears. The man was an absolute genius! My husband grew up on Fraggle Rock and I grew up on Muppet Babies... both shows are so groundbreaking, creative, and entertaining - as are all of his ideas. This was such a good series. Thanks for the memories!

Wonderful documentary series. As someone born in the mid-80s, I watched a lot of muppets in syndication on Nickelodeon. Fraggle Rock, Muppet show, muppet babies, then I grew up experienced 20 years of adult hood and about 6 years ago I found out one of the most influential people in my life died far too young. Jim Henson was a name known to me for years but not until the the muppet movie was I reminded of what he meant for me and millions of children in the early 90s. To say I'm still mourning his death is an understatement. Thank you for these videos. Understanding this man's journey has helped things a lot. I think kermit would say, "Till next time."

Jim died only a few months after I was born, but the legacy he left was my childhood. I don't think I'd be the person I am today without Jim Henson's characters, stories, & overall vision of what education & entertainment could be. I never thought I'd cry so much during a 35 minute video but damn, this got me. Thank you for capturing so much of his life & his work in this stunning tribute.

Im glad the final two movies he worked on were successful. Considering I heard he mentioned the suit and creature effects on the tmnt movies were some of his most challenging creations. And wow watching the first two, the first ninja turtle in particular, was just amazing. And the fact that it is his version of the turtles that arguably the most iconic, rivaling the original cartoon versions. Jim really was a great man.

I like how this video constantly swapped between what was happening in the past and the scene at Jim's funeral. Also, that credits music ties in well with the end of the actual funeral. Jim was not partially a man for gloom, so he insisted that the service brought a smile on the faces of his friends and family.

I never knew the story of Jim Henson, but I loved the muppets. When I found out he was dead, I was bummed, cuz then there'd probably be no more muppets. After watching this, I'm struggling to hold back my tears. I never knew the passion he had, the work that was put into the production. Through my whole life, I've never once thought about how those 'silly puppets on screen' could have changed anything, but when Harry Belafonte spoke of the effect Jim's work had, it broke me. I'd taken it all for granted. You only need one person to believe in you. The Muppets believe in you. Jim believes in you.

This series inspired me to go to the Jim Hanson exhibit in New York and I am so thankful that I did, thank you. I grew up with the muppets even though I was born in the late 90s. There no doubt in my mind that Jim was an undeniable force in my childhood and I am sill learning things from him today. Thank you Jim, for everyone you have ever helped and taught.

I absolutely adore this mini-series just getting to know more about Jim Henson was amazing I have a question for everyone watching this for those who have seen the Muppet Show but are being full episodes or Clips what was your favorite moment from it honestly mine have to be Garth Brooks again for the lawn the roof I had wanted to see that clip for so long when I heard about it and the first time I saw it I was laughing so hard I still laugh at that Clip there's just something hilarious and just crazy not just about that scene but that is higher episode that proves what the Muppets really worried about and will guarantee to leave you in stitches by the end if you watch it

Please do an episode about The Electric Company! You seemed to have done all the other PBS children's educational shows. I bet it would make a great episode despite creepy Cosby being in it... otherwise what a cast! As a child I enjoyed it much better than Sesame Street. It was so full of clever parodies. Also great theme!

First of all, thank you for this wonderful miniseries, it was truly entertaining and enjoyable to watch. I been putting off watching the end episode because I knew it was going to hit me hard. While in the beginning I thought the going back and forth between the ceremony and the years prior was a little distracting, I realized it added some very needed levity to the topic at hand. Anyone could make a somber episode regarding his passing, but you guys embodied his philosophy and celebrated his life and the bonds he created. Bravo and I'm excited what's to come!
