dancerjack saidthe muppets were simply post-... insert whatever else you want, the muppets were on the cutting edge of it. jim hensen died WAY too soon
I couldn't agree more, but I would add, the Muppets were pre-whatever you want. They broke boundaries and reached more people in the world than any person/tv show today. Jim Henson had a wonderful vision, a vision we all could learn from.
Jim's my personal hero and he left this world a better place for having been here. Ray Charles said this of the song "Bein' Green":
"The words say, 'It's not easy being green,' but the song is about knowing who you are.
And in it you hear Jim's message most clearly.
He believed that people are good and that they want to do their best and that no matter how or why we might be different from anybody else, we should learn to love who we are and be proud of it."
Jim may be dead but we can still learn from him. So sit down, turn on an episode of The Muppet Show, and laugh.
As a side note, if anyone would like to further discuss the Muppets, message me, they are my life, lol.
