I can't think of a single person who hasn't heard of at least one of Jim Henson's works, and it is fitting that Google is honoring what would have been Henson's 75th birthday today. Henson was responsible for creating some of the most memorable characters that are still present within today's media. With works such as Sesame Street, The Muppet Show, The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, and The Storyteller under his remarkable list of accomplishments, Henson is definitely still alive with all of his audience, both older and younger generations.
