Groovy Photos Sure To Make You Smile
Cool photo of Jim Henson sitting with the Bert Muppet character (he created in 1969) by a window, 1971
Here’s a cool photo of Jim Henson sitting by a window back in 1971 with one of the iconic muppets he created, Bert. The puppeteer, artist, cartoonist, inventor, screenwriter, and filmmaker achieved international fame as the creator of the Muppets. He founded Muppets, Inc. in 1958, which went on to become the Jim Henson Company.
Henson’s fame came in 1969 when he joined the children's television program Sesame Street to develop characters for the series. Then in 1976, he produced The Muppet Show and won the world over with his creations, particularly Kermit the Frog, Rowlf the Dog, and of course, Bert and Ernie.
