"The most sophisticated people I know - inside they are all children." -- Jim Henson
James Maury "Jim" Henson (September 24, 1936 — May 16, 1990) was an American puppeteer. He was one of the most widely known puppeteers in history and was the creator of The Muppets. He was the leading source behind their long run in the television series Sesame Street and The Muppet Show and films such as The Muppet Movie (1979) and creator of advanced puppets for projects like Fraggle Rock, The Dark Crystal, and Labyrinth. He was also an Oscar-nominated film director, Emmy Award-winning television producer, and the founder of The Jim Henson Company, the Jim Henson Foundation, and Jim Henson's Creature Shop. Henson died unexpectedly in 1990 at the age of 53. In 1992, he received the prestigious Courage of Conscience Award from The Peace Abbey.
