Although the anniversary of Jim Henson’s deathÂ is onÂ May 16th. I was wanting to celebrate his life and work by postingÂ some of his really great performances and interviews over the next couple of days.
Here is an amazing Muppet Movie camera test– it shows the genius and chemistry Jim Henson and Frank Oz had. It is great to see them play off each other; improving their way through very witty material.Â Â
One of the greatestÂ Muppet moments ever! I remember watching thisÂ on the big screen, wondering the whole time how they did it. A great opening to a great movie.
Classic Mahna Mahna skit– this is the earliest versions I was able ever to find. I believe Frank Oz performed both the girls, while Jim Henson performed the little hippie type character.
