Last Friday, Jim Henson was officially inducted as a Disney Legend. (Disney owns the Muppets now, of course, but even before that they had several fruitful collaborations, most famously probably Muppet*Vision 3D.) This report on the ceremony includes photographs and two videos: Brian Henson and Sesame Street's Leslie Carrara-Rudolph re-enact a skit from the old "Sam & Friends" days, and two familiar faces who haven't often got to work together sing "The Rainbow Connection".

[edited to add: Another video from the ceremony - includes a retrospective montage, the skit, Brian Henson's speech, and a deputation of Henson's offspring accepting the honour on his behalf]


This reminds me that I have a bunch of other Muppet-related links I keep meaning to post:

At Home with Animal

A collection of behind-the-scenes videos and extras - includes some extended and alternate scenes from The Muppet Movie

Behind the scenes at The Muppet Show (The scene being filmed here is one of my favourites in the series - if memory serves, I've already blogged the video of it in the past.)

Sesame Street art by Evan Cheng - a wide variety of Muppets in a wide variety of styles

I guess everybody's seen this already, but what the heck, I haven't reblogged it yet: Bohemian Rhapsody, Muppet style

I recently came across this video of a musical number from Jim Henson's first TV show, Sam and Friends. Like most musical numbers from that show, it consists of a group of Muppets miming to a record, in this case a Stan Freberg skit that starts as a straight song then goes farther and farther off the rails.

The remarkable thing about it is how well it works as a Muppet skit. (I guess that says something about where the Muppets get their sense of humour from.)

Two videos behind the cut )
