The Muppets: Behind-the-scenes photos

I knew it was going to be a good day when the first Tweet I saw was about The Muppets being donated to the Smithsonian. And then I discovered that today would have been Muppets creator Jim Henson's 77th birthday.

Cue #ChildrenOfThe80sUnite.

It's true. Ask anyone between the ages of 30 and 45, and they'll get that bright sparkle in their eyes as they recall how Kermit and the rest of the gang were such a huge part of their childhood. I must have seen The Muppets Take Manhattan hundreds of times, and to this day, I still get teary-eyed when I hear The Rainbow Connection. Seriously. Every. Single. Time. Here, some fun behind-the-scenes photos...

Wouldn't it be fun to get to work with The Muppets every day? Yes, I know they're puppets, but they're such a part of American pop culture. Who's your favorite Muppet, friends? Look for my pick in the comments! xoxo

P.S. More proof of my Muppets addiction. And, more behind-the-scenes photos: Titanic, Mad Men, Jaws and E.T.

  1. I still to this day love the Muppets, and I'm so happy that my little girl loves them too! Her favourite is Cookie Monster, but I'm going to have to say that my favourite is any one of the Fraggles.

  2. It would be SO much fun, indeed. I LOVE those photos! Happy Wednesday, sweetie.

  3. After we accidentally ended up with two pets named after Muppets, we decided to make it our official pet-naming system. It started with our turtle, whom I named Kermit because I got a kick out of it, and then we adopted our cat Grover, who was cleverly named as a reference to his orange color, but when I called our vet to make the appointment, the secretary made the connection. Since then, we've added our dog Mokey and our cat Dr. Teeth. :)

  4. I love these stories!! I'm a big fan of Miss Piggy! LOVE her sass and spunk!


Your lovely comments make my day so much sweeter! Thanks for stopping by and saying hello!
