Jim Henson was born on this day (Sept. 24) in 1936. I’ve always enjoyed his work — especially Emmet Otter’s Jugband Christmas and Fraggle Rock. Takes me back.. or I should say, takes me somewhere else.. plus the music on these shows is almost always so good. Check the video above of Emmet Otter’s Jugband singing “Brothers”.
“The most sophisticated people I know–inside they’re all children. We never really lose a certain sense we had when we were kids.” – Jim Henson
